  • Plus-size retailer 11 Honoré just had the most powerful fashion show: Shop every single look

    Plus-size luxury e-tailer 11 Honoré just kicked off New York Fashion Week on Wednesday night, with a powerful, size-inclusive show that included Laverne Cox shutting down the catwalk in a princess-worthy fuchsia gown by Zac Posen.Curvy models Candice Huffine, Precious Lee, Marquita Pring and more strutted the catwalk wearing a myriad of red carpet gowns any A-list actress would wear to the Oscars. After all, the looks were designed by the fashion industry’s premiere crop of designers — Altuzarra, Brandon Maxwell, Christian Siriano, Prabal Gurung and Jason Wu were among the 35 designers featured in the show. Their collections are often adorned by celebs and royals, from Nicole Kidman to Meghan Markle. All of the show’s looks flowed seamlessly from one to another — from luxe tuxedo blazer dresses, sleek sheath dresses and pleated coral gowns to emerald off-the-shoulder blouses and sexy cold-shoulder dresses.11 Honoré’s show comes at an especially crucial time during NYFW’s shift towards greater size inclusivity. Recent fashion weeks have witnessed a rise in body-positive fashion; Torrid staged its first runway show, as did Loft, and labels like Chromat, Christian Siriano and Prabal Gurung have been making plus-size models a regular part of their runway shows.But what makes 11 Honoré different from the others is that its entire business model is centered on catering luxury fashion to women who were underserved for so long. The e-tailer stocks looks from nearly 90 designers in sizes 10 to 20-plus, proving that any woman can wear luxurious designer threads. To bring new meaning to the “See now, buy now” model, 11 Honoré gave show attendees booklets that enabled them to shop the looks straight from their seats by scanning Shopify-enabled QR codes on their smartphones.Everyone else can shop the entire show now on 11honore.com. If you need a little extra styling advice, 11 Honoré partnered with Shopbop to curate shoes and accessories to pair with each runway look, so you can get the full-fledged personal experience from the comfort of your own home.“11 Honoré strives to be on the right side of the conversation about where fashion is headed and is honored to be a part of creating a real change,” says Patrick Herning, founder and CEO of 11 Honoré. “Today is a culmination of innovation, technology and fashion.”Click through the gallery to shop every single look from 11 Honoré’s historic NYFW show.The editors at Yahoo Lifestyle are committed to finding you the best products at the best prices.

The two partnered with five designers, including Siriano, for the #TeeUpChange campaign featuring five body-positive T-shirts whose proceeds will go toward size-inclusive fashion education for the next group of emerging designers.Plus-size models like Candice Huffine, Hunter McGrady, Paloma Elesser, Marquita Pring, and more have strutted the catwalk during NYFW and at theCURVYcon this season, continuing to shatter old stereotypes of what a fashion model should look like in 2018.Above, see all of the body-positive moments from New York Fashion Week and continue to check back as we update the gallery.Read More from Yahoo Lifestyle: • Fashion designer casts all Asian models for historic NYFW show  • Political slogan tee strikes at NYFW: ‘Vote for Cynthia’ Nixon  • Curvy model causes a stir in ‘Sample-Size’ T-shirt at NYFW’s most diverse show Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.

  • Will Fashion's Body Diversity Movement Ever Go Global?

    As much progress as there is still to be made in the name of body diversity within American fashion (and there's plenty), the runways of New York Fashion Week are no longer off-limits to plus-size models. Starting in earnest back in 2004 with Dove's Campaign for Real Beauty, mainstream fashion magazines began casting plus-size models like Ashley Graham in their pages to much fanfare, setting the stage for consumers to harness the power of social media to amplify conversations around brand campaigns that celebrate diverse bodies — and, conversely, to tear those that don't to shreds. Which makes it all the more puzzling to watch Fashion Week after Fashion Week go by in London, Milan, and Paris and see barely any change in the range of bodies sent down the runway, or shown within the social media accounts of most luxury brands.
