At navabi we believe it is our mission to champion the cause of ‘plus size’. We have fought this cause for several years now, and over that time we believe that society and the fashion industry are changing for the better as a result of the work of plus size women, of fashion brands, and of retailers pushing to change the world.
Things have improved, but we are not yet there. Magazines still focus on a narrow selection of body images; designers still produce most of their samples in very small sizes; many retailers still stock a very small selection of plus size (if at all).
To further the cause of plus size women, and to help editors, designers, fashion brands, non-plus bloggers, and the general public to further the cause with us, we have defined the following Plus Size Manifesto.
The idea of ‘plus size’ and all that goes with it does not exist within a bubble. We believe by following this manifesto, we can influence the wider world, and help achieve a better society for plus size women, and for the young girls who look up to them.
If you have ideas on things we’ve missed or that we should change in this draft manifesto, please contact us! We’re most easy to reach via Twitter, so tweet us at @navabiFashion.
