Chatting Diversity - Garnerstyle

Chatting Diversity

While I was NYC last week working on all things theCURVYcon, I was able to have attended a luncheon hosted by StyleWatch (also the official media partner of theCURVYcon, whoop whoop!). The topic of discussion was diversity and how their magazine could improve their efforts in an authentic way.  I'm always excited to participate in these types of conversations, and it's so important that they are had, especially in mainstream media.  I am fortunate enough to have a diverse audience of women that come to Garnerstyle for their dose of fashion, with that said I always want to make sure that I am advocating for their inclusions. I sometimes think when the topic of diversity is discussed it's always about racial diversity. That is a huge component, but there is also body types, sizes, heights, and even religion as the Hijabistas navigate the fashion space beautifully and should be able to see themselves as well. The state of plus size fashion is at a sort of crossroads.  It seems like we are seeing more and more plus size women in media, but the same type of woman is being represented. She's 5'10, hourglass, size 12/14, and white.  The crossroads mentioned poses the question, "Is the plus size movement going to be inclusive and representative of all plus size women or are we going to be represented by one particular look, body type, and race?? These are just questions I have.



On a lighter note, I got to meet designer Tracey Reese.  We got to discuss briefly what she has on the horizon for her brand.  I'm elated about that conversation and the potential.  

Style Notes:  I know a lot of you are looking for graduation dresses. This is an adorable one that I think would go great under a cap and gown. I am wearing a size 18 in this dress. It has light stretch and has a little bit of tulle underneath the skirt to give it a good flare.  My shoes are JCrew via eBAY. I size up to a 12 to give me the width I need.  Links to all items at the end of the post.
