Default ''Is Plus Size Ready for Fashion?'' (article)

Like everyone else here, I was fascinated by the "Glamorous Curves" exhibition which photographer Wahb Mabkhout staged last year in L.A., featuring cinematic images of numerous stunning plus-size models, including Kelsey Olson.

There was the initial thread about the event, which included the behind-the-scenes video of the shoot.

Then, Sarah contributed an exceptionally fine write-up about the show itself.

And finally, the Judgment of Paris ran an original interview with the photographer.

Now Mr. Mabkhout has published an interesting article about the relationship of the plus-size industry to high fashion. It's well worth a read:

It comes illustrated with a number of stunning images, including Wahb's portrait of Kelsey, which was the standout image of his "Glamorous Curves" show.

I still hope that this photographer will find a way to work within the plus-size industry. His background working with Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues makes him an ideal candidate for showcasing the gorgeous curves of plus-size models in a truly glamorous and pro-curvy way, particularly given his willingness to work with genuinely full-figured models and his opposition to excessive airbrushing.
