11 Honore is a trendy online shopping haven that carries runway-inspired looks for plus-size women ranging from sizes 10 to 20. On Feb. 6, the brand debuted its first NYFW show at Spring Studios. It was a hit, to say the least, and people were thrilled to see this type of diversity showcased on runways.
To make everything even more uber-amazing than it already was, Cox closed the show by twirling and swirling in a Zac Posen red dress along with a celebratory confetti drop. It was a moment!
While transgender models were on more runways than ever before last year, according to The Fashion Spot’s New York Fashion Week Fall 2018 Diversity Report, transgender and non-binary models are still underrepresented and plus-size models only account for 0.4 percent of runway models.
In addition to the celebration of size inclusivity at 11 Honore’s debut show, there was also a glamorous mix of high-end designers, including everyone from Christian Siriano to Brandon Maxwell.
Cox’s walk was an exciting yet emotional fashion moment which prompted co-founder of plus-size retailer Premme, Nicollete Mason, to post her thoughts about the show on Instagram. “I’M EMOTIONAL,” she wrote. “@11honore at #NYFW. Feels so good to see all these gorgeous humans sharing a runway. Omg. I was not expecting to tear up at this — fashion still has a LONG way to go, but I feel so hopeful and so excited to see these changes and to be part of this conversation.”
Mason’s post has attracted more than 18,000 likes and comments sharing her sentiments about 11 Honore’s revolutionary show.
