Vogue Editor Talks About How Designers Refused to Dress Ashley Graham

You would think Ashley Graham’s efforts to forge a new body positive path in fashion is something top designers would greet with respect, but as British Vogue editor; Alexandra Shulman revealed in the magazine’s January 2017 issue, that’s unfortunately not the case.

“The shoot was put together fairly last-minute and we are all very grateful to the people at Coach who, under the creative direction of Stuart Vevers, moved speedily to provide clothes for us that had to come from outside their sample range,” British Vogue‘s longtime editor in chief, Alexandra Shulman, wrote in her monthly letter.

This revelation comes just over a month after Graham publicly asked designers to start making clothes for full-figured women. “Slowly but surely there are really big designers that are coming out of the woodwork and making clothes for curvy girls, Christian Siriano, Prabal Gurung,” the Lane Bryant brand ambassador told Racked. “There are a few that are finally pairing up with the right people, but there are so many more that need to do what Michael Kors has done, Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, and make those extended sizes. But what I really want to see – and those designers included – is for designers to make their high-end lines go up in extended sizes, because I wanna buy it!”
