On Thursday, Ashley Nell Tipton, the 24 year old plus size designer from San Diego, was declared the winner of Project Runway season 14.
I actually shed a tear to see Ashley's collection coming down the runway. I have watched Project Runway from season one, and Ashley's is the first plus size collection to be featured. Seeing models that look like me was quite an experience. Okay people, they are models so they are stunning- but you take my meaning! I looked at every piece of clothing and could imagine it on my body- the fun! Purple lace is my new favourite ;) I would love to hear what you think of Ashley's looks below.
I adore the blue dress with the sheer panels and the pink lace over top with the blue bandeau- so wearable!
Jennifer Maitland (below) looked so stunning in this purple/plum two piece combo, it made me proud to be curvy!
We can only hope the publicity from Ashley's win convinces the fashion world to create more modern and beautiful clothing that regular women want to wear.
