Super-size fashion show in Bogota aims to break stereotype of beauty

“For Colombia, as in many other Latin American countries, super-size fashion is widely welcome because overweight women also like to dress beautiful and colorful. But the supply is short. Super-size clothes are always outdated and obviously disliked.

“By wearing suitable clothes, an overweight woman won’t feel different and alienated from her group. It is good for her to find really fitting fashion in the market. Even more, we offer divine clothes and spectacular things for them.”

“We started talking about this issue for some time and then a revolution is building up. In the United States, Spain or France there is sufficient response to this issue, but in Latin America it has not happened a lot.”

“It’s like breaking a stereotype that has been sold for so long through the media. Women don’t have to look skinny, to have surgery and frequent clinics for artificial stuff. It can be more accepted that we are fat but we can also look beautiful and confident.”
