 Designer Plus-Size Fashion on the Milan Runways

Plus models on the runway at Elena Miro, February 2008
Elena Miro: Milan, February 16, 2008

It wasn’t so long ago that the fashion world was in an uproar over too skinny models, body image and eating disorders. But, as is typical with such fads in the fashion world such healthy concern in setting good examples for young girls has gone by the wayside and pursuit of the elusive, perfect size 0 model continues.

This makes all the more extra-ordinary the showing of the Elena Miro collection during Milan’s Fashion Week on February 16, 2008. A regular in the Milan line-up, Italian designer Elena Miro is not only noteworthy in the use of full-figured models (womanly and well-proportioned but not fat), but also in the design of plus-size fashion.

The Fall/Winter 2008-09 collection continues styles seen this past winter season and is characterized by lush berry ripe purples and reds, European black in menswear inspired styles softened by lady-like details, tailoring combined with ruffles, and fabrics with soft luster and sheen.
