Model Ashley Graham makes history at New York Fashion Week

Ashley Graham is currently slaying the fashion game. We just celebrated her being featured on the cover of Vogue and now she landed another big win: walking the Michael Kors fall/winter fashion show at New York Fashion Week.

She became the first model beyond a size 12 to walk for renowned designer, Michael Kors – marking quite a big shift for a designer label that has been in the industry for more than 3 decades.

According to USA TODAY, at his 2016 show, Michael Kors said, “The only reason we don’t have plus size on the runway, for me to have the range of sizes I would have to have a football stadium filled with clothes before I was able to put on a fashion show. I’d have to have everything from a size 2 to a size 18.”

Yet, in reality, they label does carry larger sizes. Like up to 16.

The theme of the 2017 runway show was “sensual strength” and the models wore little-to-no makeup, paired with lamé, animal prints, sequins and ’70s fashion trends.

Graham walked down the runway in a grey body-con dress, cropped fur coat, and a big belt, looking all kinds of gorgeous.

This is truly great that Graham was the first to walk for Kors, yet I still find this “historic moment” a bit sad. Curvy models should already be mainstream in 2017.

Hopefully we will continue to see runways get more inclusive in the future.
