NYFW Plus size model fashion

The 5 Best Body-Positive Moments from NYFW

New York Fashion Week previewed what trends we can expect this Fall and Winter. There were plenty of fabulous fashion-forward looks, but the top look of the week was body-positivity. This year, more than ever before, it seems like we got a better diversity of body types on the runways.

Of course, Chromat was absolutely bringing the size inclusivity! But, we got to see some newer brands and names that were also working to redefine who high fashion is for. Serena Williams‘ eponymous new line was a real breakout. There was tons of exciting stuff to see at NYFW, but here we give you our top five moments.

Kleinfeld Bridal brought the inspired bridal looks we all craved to the runway. In addition to featuring gorgeous wedding gowns, they also highlighted their selection of bridesmaid dresses.
