Chloe Nezianya, 23, Liverpool born fashion design Womenswear graduate from Kingston School of Art with a focus on plus-size bodies and their relationship with the luxury fashion sector. Championing diversity by using models of varying sizes, ethnicities and ages. My frustration comes from a distinct lack of luxury fashion houses and brands that do not use their influence to dress marginalized bodies to perpetuate the idea that other bodies exist outside of the “straight-size” realm.

“I believe that women can form their identities through fashion, but for the bigger woman, it is especially challenging to break from the conservative and uncreative dressing that we have become accustomed to. I believe that women should not have to compromise comfort over style, and in order to do this, designers must take the responsibility to consider how to empower women through dress.”
