Christina Mendez, the beautiful and curvy top plus size model, is set to walk in the Adrian Alicea Haute Couture Fashion Show during the Fall / Winter 2014 season of New York Fashion Week, February 12th, 2013 at Landmark on the Park. In a press release Christina was quoted as saying “ I am truly honored Adrian Alicea selected me to represent “Couture Curves”. With Adrian integrating a plus model alongside straight-sized models, he’s showcasing the beauty of fashion for everyone during New York Fashion Week….where opportunities for plus models to walk the runway are slim-to-none in the fashion capital of the world even with targeted fashion weeks.”
In PlusModelsToday.com’s opinion, this is exactly the how fashion and modeling should be – inclusive rather than divisive. It’s not that hard.
For more info on the show, including ticket reservations, please visit the house of Adrian Alicea’s website.
