Plus size models

A Plus-size model is a term applied to a person who is engaged primarily in modeling plus-size clothing. Plus-size models also engaged in work that is not strictly related to selling large-sized clothing, e.g., stock photography and advertising photography for cosmetics, household and pharmaceutical products and sunglasses, footwear and watches. Therefore plus-size models do not exclusively wear garments marketed as plus-size clothing. This is especially true when participating in fashion editorials for mainstream fashion magazines.

Synonymous and interchangeable with plus-size model is “full-figured model,” “extended-sizes model,” and “outsize model”.

Fashion designers are starting to look more closely at the earning potential from plus-size clothing, and have used plus-size models for their advertising campaigns and catwalks.

HISTORY OF FASHION (Renaissance)

Renaissance  fashion and costumes (XV-XVI Century) mirrored the advancing culture, as increasing trade made more clothing materials available. Nobility dressed themselves in elaborate and brightly colored robes, gowns and other vestments. The upper class reserved silk for themselves, and in some areas, peasants were forbidden to possess it. Embroidery of gold and silver thread would be sewn to form fanciful designs depicting scences from legends, nature or religion. Those living during the Renaissance would adorn themselves in jewelry, furs, and elaborate belts. Wigs crafted from peasant’s hair was also very popular.

Fashion represented a big status symbol during the Renaissance. The wealthy were literally “wearing their wealth” as the expensive clothing helped establish a reputation of wealth for the owner. It was usually the wealthy or ruling class that drove Renaissance fashion. However, one very popular fashion trend, the technique of “slashing” was originated within the lower classes or commoners. The beret was also invented during these times. They were highly decorated by either jewels or embroidery.
