Paris finally celebrates real women with Pulp Fashion Week

Considering 57% of American women buy clothing in sizes 16 or larger, it’s about time a plus-size (ahem, real size) fashion show garnered some attention. This past week saw Paris hold Pulp Fashion Week, which celebrates women’s curves and sees designer collections available in American sizes 6 – 20 (Australian size 10 – 28).

Designers included La Belle Affranchie, Maryse Richardson, Tamboo Bamboo, and Femme Fabyleuses showing off their sassy garments, as well as Forever 21 and Asos Curve being two of the retailers on show.

Take a look at the pics in celebration of the week. It’s definitely refreshing after seeing some of the ‘usual’ models from NY Fashion Week parading around in September.
