Fashion History of Bbw and Plus Size Women

BBW is an acronym for “Big Beautiful Women.” In the past, a big beautiful body was associated with health and wealth. As a matter of fact, up until the 1960’s, BBW and plus size women were lauded for their beautiful physiques. The plus size woman appeared in almost all of the fashion photographs, films, and paintings of the 1920’s-1950’s. When did all of this change?

In the 1960’s, plus size fashion rapidly disappeared from the covers of magazines and on the silver screen. Many people attribute this changing trend to the first teenage supermodel –Twiggy. Ironically, Twiggy’s name suited her slender frame quite well. Instead of plus size blouses, plus size dresses, and skirts, Twiggy wore slinky dresses which hugged her small frame. In 1967, Marshall McLuhan boldly said: “Twiggy is an Xray, not a picture.”

Unlike plus size BBW, who portray a picture of health and happiness, Twiggy looked ill at a mere 95 pounds. Unfortunately, women all over the world quickly became unhappy with their bodies and fashion choices. Clothes that were made for small-framed girls were bright, fashionable, and affordable. The options for plus size BBW? Well, let’s just say they weren’t so glamorous in the 1960’s.

BBW and plus size women were largely ignored in the 1970’s and 1980’s as well. It wasn’t until the 1990’s that BBW and plus size women had enough. Curvy women and full-figured women were tired of trying to obtain an idea of perfection that was sold to them through every media median. Billboards, magazines, television shows, radio commercials and films portrayed Anna Nicole Smith, Claudia Schiffer, Cindy Crawford, and Kate Moss with their “perfect” bodies in the hottest designer fashions.

Then, as the millennium approached, the world watched in shock as something happened: tabloids and reality television began sharing the private lives of these models. Being thin wasn’t as glitzy, glamorous, and easy as it seemed. When the cameras weren’t rolling and the photographers weren’t around, many of these models struggled to stay thin. BBW and plus size women were finally able to let out a sign of relief. In a fashion-conscious world that oppressed plus size women and BBW for so long, BBW were finally recognized as being healthier than the small-framed models. But, at what cost? How many BBW and plus size women developed eating disorders in their pursuits of thinner bodies? We may never know.

In 2002, the world tuned in to watch the shocking reality sitcom the “Anna Nicole Show.” Although Anna Nicole’s life inarguably looked disastrous, no one could deny that she had gone from a slim Guess model in the 90’s to a plus size BBW over the course of a decade. She eventually experienced success, not only from her reality sitcom, but as a plus size clothing designer. Unfortunately, Anna Nicole Smith died as a result of an overdose. Her untimely death, as well as her son’s, is still shrouded by mystery.

Many people wonder if Anna Nicole Smith was the first famous BBW plus size model. It’s safe to say that this is disputable. Emme (Melissa) Aronson is recognized as the first BBW plus size model by many high-standing members of the fashion world, and Angellika is the first plus-size model that was inducted into the modeling Hall of Fame. It’s all subjective, really.

Nevertheless, all of these women paved the way for plus size BBW all over the world. Women, finally, have been recognized and accepted in every shape and form. Beauty is no longer defined by single digit clothing sizes. BBW and plus size women are beautiful and deserve the opportunity to flaunt their assets and feel comfortable in their own skin.

Does BBW fashion emulate the fashion seen on the runway? It doesn’t emulate runway fashion, it is runway fashion. Take a look at what the stars are wearing the next time you seem them in magazines. You’re just as likely to find a designer gown on a star like Queen Latifah as you are to see it on a smaller-framed celebrity like Kate Hudson. Designers are finally catering to bigger women. The BBW plus size woman doesn’t have to feel ashamed of her wardrobe anymore!

BBW plus size women’s fashion is carried by most retailers. Nevertheless, it may feel tricky to find designer BBW clothing, especially if you don’t live in the city. Fortunately, online retailers provide a convenient way to shop for BBW plus size pants, shirts, dresses, jackets, and skirts. Shopping for BBW plus size clothing has never been easier or more convenient than it is now. It’s time for you to accept your body and love your body the way it is. Find inspiration from plus size models that paved the way for acceptance, self-love, and designer BBW plus size fashion.

Working In The Fashion Industry

Working in the fashion industry:

When you work in the fashion industry you get golden invites to a lot of exclusive events with all the stars and usually get to party fabulous with all the great drinks and bubbly champagne because a party is not a party without a specialty drink. In the fashion industry, they have the head of marketing and PR and they usually develop friendships with flower shops, major magazine companies, boutiques, salons, clothing stores and everything and every place, etc.

The fashion industry deals with models, make-up, fashion and style. They have editors and editors-in-chief just to make sure that everything is where it’s supposed to be which is supposed to be a personification of over the top glamour. They also have assistants and other workers that make-up guest lists for events and have event designers, and designers of all kinds and all stars.

Note: When working in the fashion industry, there are no tears in fashion, and gum chewing is definitely unacceptable which is considered to be very unprofessional and you must always keep yourself groomed at all times and really pay close attention to your appearance.

Fashion week: Fashion week always kicks into high gear.

However, there are many benefits while working in the fashion industry, especially if you work for a major magazine company, you get a lot of free stuff that designers send over to the company and goodie bags, and you get to score a lot of fun stuff and tickets to get into events and backstage passes, you even get a press pass for every beauty event there is in order for you to interview the models and the models on the come up just so you can write a piece and an article for your job and including for fashion week and if you’re a fashion intern, you get to live in one of those fabulous loft apartments depending on the location you came from or your job location.

Know this: When you’re in the fashion industry, you end up having a clear understanding of how you can add fashion into your life. I myself is a person who really lives for fashion and style and I call myself a true fashionista and knowing what and what not to wear just like the show on TLC.

In those fashion jobs, they usually have the wardrobe closet with all of those fashion samples that you can test out and you get to go backstage to talk to the models because in fashion, you must always work hard by trying no to mess up, but at the same time, be able to take constructive criticism without any fuss or tears because know one wants to have a cry baby on staff.

Fashion week: When fashion week looms in, fashion week is almost like looking into a crystal ball.

When first getting a job in fashion: The first day on the job is kind of an intense time to be late, so you must always keep on with communication at all times whether you’ll be late or not which shows responsibility on your behalf and be happy with the work and the position that you get because it’s considered a great opportunity with benefits that are great, no girl could possibly say no.

Now a fashion assistant does all the shopping and picks up the outfits and accessories for the necessary shoots and the beauty snoops are the ones who do the on the fly interviews, checks out what’s new on the market and acting as an insider without anyone else really knowing about them, they usually create a story that is writeable with enough information that their bosses can read and always have to put the clothes neatly in the bag after picking up the outfits and accessories and if you’re an intern on an internship in the fashion industry, it’s all about learning to become the best.

Now there’s a lot of competition in the fashion industry because it’s really tough and you need to be more thick skinned than what you really are. One of the most important things in the fashion industry is to have a party weeks before fashion week and need to make sure they have enough stars and celebrities at their parties for the purpose of the press.

And last, but not least, when working in the fashion industry, you must be capable of handling a job and meeting deadlines by completing every job successfully with a lot of confidence within yourself because at the end of the day or week, you’ll be rewarded for all of your hard work with all of those fabulous items and goodies which is the best.

Gothic Clothing and Fashion

Where did Gothic Fashion Originate?

Gothic style has featured strongly throughout history and prior to their being a fashion style for so called “goths”, buildings, literature and art were referred to as being “gothic”. The original goths were a Germanic tribe that were recorded as having a major part in the fall of the Roman Empire. At the time, Europe’s style was classical and after the fall of Rome, during the Renaissance period, new styles appeared that were unusual and subsequently were referred to as “gothic”.

Gothic sub-culture has always been associated with darkness, mystery and the supernatural as well as the Roman Catholic church. In decades following the Renaissance, a nostaligic wave swept over Europe and the facination with gothic ruins and this alternative lifestyle started to create a following.

Literature and films have developed over history, typically set in a castle or dark ruin and usually featuring an appearance from vampires, mysterious beasts and femme fatales.

Gothic fashion

Romantic style gothic clothing

Gothic culture and fashion is considered to ultimately be about expressing one’s self and being able to be creative, imaginative and unique in appearance and personaility.

Typically, gothic dress consists of mainly black clothes often with black dyed hair, black painted nails and heavy black eyeliner as part of the makeup. Clothes may include tight fitting trousers, long black coats or gowns, gothic style dresses, PVC corsets, chokers, black buckled shoes or boots, piercings and silver or pewter jewwllery. As gothic culture has a strong connection to the Catholic church, crucifixes often feature.

A gothic outfit is often put together mixing items of various different fabrics such as PVC Clothes, latex, leather, fishnet and sometimes fake fur.

This sterotypical gothic look is often referred to as the “romantic goth.

Lolita style gothic clothing

A style called lolita goth” is a similar look to the “romantic goth” and it originated in Japan. Many “lolita” styles borrow ideas from Medieval, Victorian and Elizabethan period dress, such as ruffled high neck shirts, items trimmed wih lace or ribbons and outfits are often both black and white. Accessories such as parasols, lace headresses or top hats accompany the outfit.

Cyber style gothic clothing

More recently, an array of bright colours have been added to the tradional black and people following this new look have called themselves “cyber-goths”. This is gothic fashion moving to a new level as black items are now being combined with neon, wild colourful hair extensions, bright makeup and futuristic accessories such as googles.

PVC Clothes and the gothic look

PVC is one of the most popular fabrics used in gothic fashion. It’s shiny surface offers a contrast to other fabrics like velvet or even just cotton. It is cheaper to buy than leather and latex but has a very similar finish and overall look and feel. Items such as PVC corsets are typical of a gothic outfit, as they are erotic and sexual, which is often represented in the style of gothic fashion. Long black PVC coats and dark thigh high or knee high PVC boots are often used to finish off the gothic look.

How to rock the velvet trend form head to toe

We already talked about it, remember? In a previous post of trends for this fall we discussed velvet as the ‘it-fabric’ this season. Making a comeback in this 90’s fever we’ve been living lately. Back in the day, this material was somehow ‘reserved’ for gothic, dark aesthetics or for those occasions in where you wanted to channel your inner renaissance girl.

However, these days everything is different. A very good number of designers and brands decided that incorporate this fabric on their collections, but they didn’t do it in a shy way at all. From Balmain and Haider Ackermann to Isabel Marant and TopShop there’s an option for you to wear: tops, dresses, pants, shoes… if you can think about it, you’ll have in velvet.

And as it happens every time there’s a new trend, people have been overreacting a little bit. Whether is wearing it head to toe or mixing it with the wrong accessories, rules need to be stated. And for those who haven’t step into it yet, it can be a guide for you to go and try.

Use it with moderation

If you’re not someone particularly bold, maybe head to toe velvet is not the best thing to start with. What you can do is try different things until you feel comfortable and chic because, after all, that’s what fashion is for. Look for a simple top paired with jeans, or an accessory like a choker or a headband. For those ones who want to take it a little bit higher, a short dress might be the option. With this last option be careful, because a dress with tiny straps and accessories that look to 90’s can make you look like coming back in the time machine.

Mix and match

Texture is one of the biggest charms when it comes to velvet. Of course, it is a risky option per se, but that doesn’t mean you can’t add more texture to the mix. What about a little black dress with the touch of a velvet burgundy jacket? Or a skirt with a denim dress? I’ve even seen this two cold weather favorites working together with really nice results: velvet and leather. Remember, it’s all about how you feel comfortable and better. And despite this ‘rule’, if you’re bold enough to wear a velvet long gown, try to let it shine on its own.

Wear the shoes

This is definitely my favorite way to wear velvet this season. Shoes can never be too much and it’s easier to carry the trends on your feet. You’ve been seeing a lot of tall ankle boots in our favorite girls, like Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid (those two can rock any trend, huh?) but the best piece you can get this season is a pair over the knee boots in this fabric. It will take any simple outfit and make it pop out of the crowd. With velvet stay away from the basics, not black nor gray, try something really cool like burgundy, green or red.

The pastels

We are used to seeing this material in all shade of dark colors. But the good news is that the runway just gave us a very wide range of options to choose. My favorite, of course, is the burgundy (it shines like no other), but pastel tones are giving us a surprise by showing how good they look in a velvety texture. If you don’t want to look too ‘soft’, pair it with accessories or other pieces with a little bit of a masculine accent. You will look like a princess that’s able to teach a lesson to anyone who dares to ask.

Accessorize it

Accessories are always important, no matter which outfit or style you choose to wear. Being the tricky fabric that it is, velvet it’s also difficult when comes to accessorize because the material itself steals all the thunder of the outfit. However, you can do it successfully if you start from the premise of keeping it simple. Don’t try to play with big pieces or too much of them, give the importance to velvet and start from there. A simple necklace, a pair of earrings or a cocktail ring if night is the occasion. One important tip: velvet and metallic are a match made in heaven.

Have a look at the tips and be an ideal individual belonging to the emerging era.

There are several tips for fashion but the basic ones only cover a great range altogether.

Right Set of Attire

* The first essential to be fashionable is to find out the right set of attire. If you are wearing something, make it sure that it should fit you well. An ill fitting cloth can make or mar your entire appearance and personality. Choose clothes which are comfortable and looks good on you. Do not wear anything just because it is doing the rounds in the fashion circuit.
* Try different kinds of apparels and then decide upon which trends and styles suit you the best. It often happens that you have to give up on a very favorite dress you like since it is not suiting you. At times like this you might get tempted to make an impulsive purchase but do not do so as you are so going to regret it later.

Accessories

Choose the correct accessories to pair up with your clothes and apparels. Getting your accessories wrong can be a huge fashion faux-pas, so to avoid that seek some fashion tips on teaming up the best accessories with your clothes. The accessories you wear are going to accentuate your dress, and will help to complete the entire look of your attire. If you are wearing something very gorgeous then opt for minimal jewelry. But if your clothes are simple then you can highlight your look by pushing the focus on your accessories.

Lowers

The pants can be both straight legged or boot cut and in case of boot cut the hem line should be long. If you are on the plump side opt for black or brown pants to get a slimmer look. The pants should not be worn loose; it should be well fitting but definitely not tight. This style tip should not be forgotten as this can create or ruin your look absolutely.

Body Proportion

Know your body proportion first and then choose the clothes. There are certain tactics in wearing the different selection of pants and tops. If one can really wear them effectively then they might cover up several flaws of your body. If the lower half of the body is thin then wear a full top on a skinny pant. A long top with short skirt gives a great look if your waist is short. If you are a possessor of a petit torso then wear full length pants with fitted tops. If the waist is long then the bottom wear should be long and the top should be short.

Style & Comfort

Wearing a color from head to toe without the line broken in between provides slim look. Tops of fine knitted and jersey variety and pants with pockets without flap and flat fronts offers both stylish look and comfort.

Taller Torso

A shirt with collar offers the torso a taller look and act as a nice frame to the face. Among all the fashion tips this can be the most significant for the people with tall torso.

Neckline

Tops with V neck make the neck look longer. Boat necks add up a special charm to the attractive shoulders and enhance your beauty if you have nice beauty bones. You can also opt for square necks which looks good on everyone. If you have a short neckline it will be good if you do not wear round necks because that will make you look unappealing.

Legs

If your legs are fuller inside, try a side slit. If your legs are fuller outside, a mid-front or back slit is a better choice when you are opting for skirts. If you have full legs then try to avoid very short or long skirts. Being blessed with slim and shapely legs can be a big boon as you can go for any type of skirts. Women’s fashion can be tricky hence choose wisely when you go for your apparels.

Bag

Bags make a style statement of their own. When you are teaming up a bag with your outfit you have to keep in mind a lot of things. You need to think about the shape as well as the size of the bag. The bag should match with your outfit as well as your body structure. If you have a small frame and you are carrying a large bag then that might look awkward. But you can always stick to the conventional black bag which is not too big or small.

Shoes

Stilettos though are not very preferable on the line of comfort but are very much in fashion as they make the leg look really special. Flats are very comfortable, but it should be avoided if you are attending any formal occasion. It should also be avoided if you are short.

The Fashion of the 1960s

The ‘60s was the decade of freedom. Everyone, particularly the youth, spoke out their preferences, and had an immediate and powerful effect on the fashion industry. For example, the women of the ‘60s chose to have a childlike image with short skirts, much like the trend in the 1920s.

Fashion in the ‘60s emphasized simplicity, youthfulness, and neatness. Synthetic fabrics became widely used during the decade. Hats became passé. Stilettos were widely used items as well as lower kitten heels. Flat boots were also worn as well as very short dresses. Shoes invariably changed from pointed toes, to chisel shaped toes, and to almond toes.

Light fabric was the choice material for menswear in the decade. Young men chose to grow their hair down, even reaching the collar. For good measure they added floral motifs and colors to their shirts. Other trends among men were the wearing of the polo neck, the workman jacket coupled with rough corduroy. The Mao jacket also proved to be more than a political gimmick. Jeans were also worn marking another innovation in the wardrobe of men. Designers like Pierre Cardin introduced some progressive rumbling although the 3-piece suit remained unchanged. The ‘60s movements of hippie and psychedelia had a strong influence on fashion.

The decade also marked the rise of partnerships between high fashion designers and popular celebrities. Audrey Hepburn was matched with Givenchy, while Jackie Kennedy found hers with Oleg Cassini. It was also the time when models stamped their influence on fashion.

Fashion or Gay?

According to a survey conducted by an authority, about 69.9% of Americans said at least one of their acquaintances was gay. No wonder the same-sex relationship draws great attention of the public. Let’s just have a look at the following facts:

1. A constitutional amendment banning gay marriage ranks 21st out of 22 issues of importance to Americans.

2. Marriage and family recognition issues affecting same-sex couples have played a recurrent and central role in U.S. presidential politics.

3. Internationally there is a distinct trend toward protecting the committed relationships of same-sex couples. For example, 14 countries, including South Africa, Israel, and Britain, protect same-sex couples.

4. In addition, it is said that in the presidential election of America, candidate’s attitude toward gays, guns, and abortion has direct relation with the final result since it is likely that close to 10% of democratic primary voters are gay, lesbian, or bisexual. Therefore, in a close election, gay votes can make the difference between victory and defeat.

I don’t care about social or political impact of gays, what attracts me is the relationship between fashion and gays, which seems to have great influence on the attitude of Americans, especially men toward dressing. Believe it or not, in their mind, fashion is tightly connected with gays. Generally speaking in Americans’eyes, gay guys have following similar features:

1. Fashionable and stylish. Pay attention to fashion and have a good eye for fashion.

2. Well-dressed. Carefully select and match their clothes, impressing others as tasteful and delicate.

3. Showing affection toward silk clothes and tight dresses.

4. Often going to the gym to keep a perfect figure.

5. Handsome, considerate and easy-going with girls.

Actually many TV plays and movies illustrate the appearance of gays. Take the hot TV series Queer Eye for the Straight Guy for an example. It talks about how five gay guys save a straight man who knows nothing about fashion. From wardrobe, hairdressing, fine food, room arrangement, to life style, these five gay guys display their insightful view toward fashion, successfully changing the straight guy’s image. It seems that only gays can really catch the essence of fashion.

There’s no story without coincidence. Most renowned American designers of women dresses are gays, such as Dior, Yve Saint Laurent, Giorgio Armani, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, etc. Even Tim Gunn, chairman of fashion design department of Parsons The New School for Design, doesn’t cover his gay romance. After appearing in the live fashion program Project Runway, he completely becomes a stylish idol of gays. Gradually, an underlying principle that works in design circle is: he should be a gay if he wants to be an excellent fashion designer. Sometimes I even doubt that some designers who are said to be gays are actually not gays. They just use the status as gays to increase their popularity. No matter you look back the history, or check the situation in big cities, such as New York and Paris, it will surprise you to find that a history of fashion is actually a history of gays.

Considering about the relationship between fashion and gays, many common men, or as it is said straight men, dare not to be fashionable. So you will find that few Americans wear pink shirts as our British do; Asian men like to carry Louis Vuitton bags while Americans never carry. No wonder most products of Ed hardyan American brand, are sold outside America and the sale of lovely UGG boots is low in America. Actually, Americans have been inculcated the relation between fashion and sex when they were born. In hospital, a newborn boy is packed with blue cloth while girl’s is pink. So you see if a mom sticks to pack her boy with pink, she will suffer from great pressure.

I ever read an interesting article in Details. Its topic contained two questions: “British or gays?” “Asian or gays?” and there were two pictures under each question respectively. In one picture, it was a fashionable British man while an Asian man with stylish dresses was on the other picture. Americans were totally at a loss when they saw the two fashionable guys, so they posed the above two questions. In their mind, no one but gay can be so “fashionable”. They even list down many details in dressing of the two guys, such as hairstyle, long nail, smooth chest, shining shoes, florid sunglasses, etc. to support their view: they two are gays.

After reading this article, I can’t help thinking what’s fashion? What can American males wear?

By the way, how can an American compete with a British or a Frenchman when they pick up the same girl?
