Project Runway winner Christian Siriano (season 4) is making waves in the fashion world by featuring 5 plus size models at NYFW last week.
According to Glamour, Siriano wasn't attempting to make a statement, he admitted that he just grew up with "a mom who was a size 16, 18, so it wasn’t new to me to have a voluptuous woman in my life. And my sister’s a size 00. I had the two total extremes".
In order to ensure inclusion, his 5 plus size models were also accompanied on the runway by "straight-sized" models - echoed by his audience which had Christina Hendricks, Pam Anderson, Coco Rocha, and Ashley Graham (dressed in Chrisian Siriano).
This isn't the first time Siriano has come to the rescue of the plus size woman, when Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones claimed no designer wanted to dress her for the red carpet, Siriano stepped up.
