Christina Mendez Top Plus Size Model

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.
