Mexico fashion collection champions plus-size designs
Guadalajara, Mexico, Jul 12 (EFE).- Curved lines and diversity are the main collection by Mexican designer Benito Santos presented for the first time on the main catwalk of Intermoda, a fashion exhibition in Guadalajara.
The garments of the “100 geometric” collection exploit the sensuality, elegance and empowerment of women regardless of the shape and size of their body, the designer told EFE on Tuesday after a parade of the event, which will last until Friday.
“It is important to make a democratization of all silhouettes, tall, short, skin color, whatever, your physical complexion, I think we have the right to wear a garment with a lot of love and creatives are forced to create for all types of bodies because in real life there is a great diversity of silhouettes,” he said.
It is a commitment to the so-called “plus size,” against the speech of fatphobia and proof that the fashion industry is in a process of change to include the diversity of ways of being and dressing.
“It is a matter of empowerment, of self-esteem, but above all of respect for their body and that they love each other the way they are, they are unrepeatable, they are unique and each one of us with our skin color and our characteristics is unique”, Santos said.
Model Stephenie Zetterqvist Iniguez, one of those who wore plus-size designs on the catwalk, told EFE more and more designers are creating designs adapted to all body types with the idea that anyone can be fashionable.
“Fashion is innovating, people are changing, everyone is realizing that there are real bodies, that not all people have to be beautiful having a certain size or stereotype,” she said. EFE
