I’ve always known I’ve wanted to become a fashion designer, but growing up plus size has made me eager to design for the plus size market. I grew up wearing clothes meant for women older than I was, just because I was bigger than other girls my age. I never really got to have fun with fashion, which is what influences my aesthetic of bright fun colors and designing regardless of size because a body is a body. Size shouldn’t be define what you can and can’t wear. I’m glad the plus size market is expanding, and I want to be part of it once I graduate.
