PLUS SIZE MEN ARE FLOURISHING

Male plus size models are steadily stepping-up, although still fresh, they are up and coming, plus it’s something that I’m looking forward to, seeing them make their mark in this fashion industry. I have been seeing a lot lately, neatly dressed from head to toe — looking dapper, from the likes of IMG model Zach Miko, Benjamin Montanez, Kelvin Davis, Claus Fleissner, Troy Solomon, and aspiring brawn model, Arcadio Del Valle, to plus size male bloggers Michael-Anthony, Riccardo Onorato, Alessandro Carella, and Syed Sohail. It’s a prominent journey for this blooming territory, there must be so many questions like who’s next, how big can this get, what does this mean for the fashion industry, and what do they plan to implement regarding plus size modelling for men.

This was something that was thrown in the deep end, but looks like it’s working wonders for the fashion industry. People are hoping to see more of this and I mean significantly, to the point that it sends the industry into a great deal of enthusiasm; something that could eventually happen overnight or gradually depending on the industries future interest and how many people are intrigued overall. I believe it will bring great business and opportunity to many people and designers, as they will be able to design new clothes that are fit for purpose for plus size men.

 

See below the male models mentioned above:

That’s it for now folks. Let’s see what the future holds for this sector, because I’m sure there are a lot of men who would never have thought this trend would be coming through anytime soon. A great thumbs up from our side to see this happening.

Mattel ends criticism on the skinny Barbie Look by presenting a new curvy Barbie

Toy maker Mattel presented today the new ‘Fashionistas‘ collection of Barbie Dolls, including a new curvier look. The new dolls are thin and curvy, they are tall, normal hight and petite. They have all kind of  hair colours, even blue and purple and like before they have different skin colours.

But the biggest evolution is for sure the curvy Barbie. After many years of critisism towards Mattel to not offer a curvy Barbie, they listened to the comments and created new doll. The Doll really evolves, therefore they choosed really the perfect hashtag for this: #THEDOLLEVOLVES.

With these different types of looks Mattel can present young girls a more realistic view of how women look nowadays. The kids can relate to the dolls more, since they might look more like real women that they know in their life. And it gives them hope to achieve more in their life, since it really doesn’t matter how you look or what size you have. All women can achieve their goals in life.

Here is the Video of the New Dolls:

I really love this idea and I hope one day I can also let my daughter (when I have one) play with a curvy Barbie doll.

Since Mattel thinks the same, always remember to love yourself and to love your body.
