The fashion industry has become more inclusive of plus-size people over the years, but there's still a long, long way to go. Thankfully, designer Karoline Vitto's brand seeks to lead the charge with plus-size designs that highlight rolls, bulges, and curves as opposed to hiding them. We're not talking the typical bodycon or Spandex leggings here. Vitto actually plays with cool cutouts, cuffs, straps, and interestingly selected fabrics to ensure that every part of the body is on full display.
Her clothes are a raw, honest love letter to plus-size people in whatever shape they come in and a breath of fresh, uncontaminated air in the fashion industry in general.
The collection has gotten so much love from people who appreciate a designer who respects the beauty of reality.
"[Redacted] yes. A beautiful, subtly powerful collection from one of the few upcoming designers thinking outside the sample-size box. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant," one person wrote.
This only highlights the fact that people want to see more of this and less of the "skinny as beauty" narrative. May the rest of the fashion industry rise to the occasion. It's so beyond time.
