Christian Siriano is the every woman's designer. He doesn't hoard his designs for wealthy, thin, white women. Instead, the 31-year-old has made his fashion accessible: After all, a retail version of his bags and shoes are sold at Payless.
After dressing Leslie Jones, Danielle Brooks, Janet Mock, and a number of other "unconventional" celebrities, Siriano brought his body positive designs to New York Fashion Week.
Instead of a sea of size 2 models, Siriano employed at least eight models who are bigger than sample size.
Fashion has a notorious issue with inclusion.
For spring 2017, 69.7% of the 2,973 models cast were white, according to The Fashion Spot.
He also used one particular outfit to promote a message of inclusion. Model Jasmine Poulton wore a "People Are People" t-shirt with a pink satin skirt.
It's a subtle touch that, according to The Hollywood Reporter, got rousing applause from the celebrities in the front row.
