  • The ugly truth behind luxury fashion’s enduring plus-size blindspot
    • This weak support for larger sizes — when there’s any support at all — has created the sense that luxury brands “look down on women and garments that aren’t within a certain size parameter,” argued Jim Fosina, chief executive officer of Fosina Marketing Group.
    • According to Fosina, designers who continue to resist the market based on old-school and backwards standards will only suffer for it.
    • “Not addressing a sizable market with the potential of driving new customers and profits will definitely hurt the bottom line of the brand,” he said. “Those designers who do will reap the benefits.”
