True Designers Don't Make Clothes for Oversize Women

Fashionable Women
In most fashion shows and designers extravaganza, fat and curvy women are unlikely to receive much attention. Designers keep their collections tightly under wraps before sending them down the runway, but if past years are any indication of what’s to come, plus-size looks will be in short supply.

The reason is simple: nobody wants their clothes worn by unhealthy women and then flaunt it publicly like it everyone is attracted to them.

The overwhelming sentiments from the true artistic designers is, "I'm not interested in her." Why? "I don't want her wearing my clothes." Why? "She won't look the way that I want her to look."

A plus-size woman is complicated, different and difficult. Also, no two size 16s are alike.

Some designers have frankly said what everyone else had in mind. "No one wants to see curvy women" on the runway, Karl Lagerfeld, head designer of Chanel, said in 2009.

Plenty of mass retailers are no more enlightened: Under the tenure of chief executive Mike Jeffries, Abercrombie & Fitch sold nothing larger than a size 10, with Jeffries explaining that "we go after the attractive, all-American kid."

Lastly, fashion industry are doing well right now. They have not fallen on hard times at all to force or compel them to accommodate the unhealthy segment of the market. All women of every size can look good, but it does not mean that designers need to sacrifice their aesthetic and financial potential just to cater to the very few illusions and fantasies of the unprofitable market.
