NYFW: AW18 – Plus size models on the runway

Chromat have been representing and reminding fashion that one size does not fit all for several season’s now and it is truly joyous to see the brand develop and do well, whilst still staying true to their diverse message and also being able to grow their diversity representation on the runway as the brand progresses. Always a highlight of New York Fashion Week, Chromat didn’t disappoint as they showed models of different body shapes and ethnicities. The brand also invited Viktoria Modesta, a music artist, who has a prosthetic leg to join their legion of power models and role models this year on the catwalk. Consistently raising the bar for NYFW, in fact for ALL fashion weeks, Chromat designer,¬†Becca McCharen-Tran, continues to show that fashion does not and should not have one body type.

Adding to her band of loyal plus size models such as Denise Bidot and Sabina, Becca also cast Ericka Hart, a breast cancer survivor as one of her key show models.

The models took to the runway in signature sports luxe inspired dresses, sportswear, swimwear and lingerie style pieces with the lashings of attitude that this brand commands.

Bright block colour, zipper detailing and cord pulleys all helped to create the sports luxe aesthetic, while models were accessorised with bandlettes, the brand that Chromat has partnered with again for this seasons show.

While often a diverse runway is seen as a gimmick, for Becca this is anything but and she has constantly proven that is is simply her belief and a reflection of how fashion should be.

Showing the activism runway is well and truly still alive.
