Embracing women of all sizes!
Italian luxury fashion house, Dolce & Gabbana just became the first designer brand to include sizes up to UK 22. All designer brands cater to women who wear up to size UK 16, so the brand, helmed by designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, is pushing boundaries and moving towards inclusivity.
D&G have always celebrated women and femininity, so it is only fitting that they be the first brand to champion more body positivity. Not only are they extending their size range, but the fashion house will also feature plus-size models in their future campaigns.
The brand released a statement in regards to this new change. “Dolce & Gabbana has been in love with feminine sensuality in all its forms from the beginning,” shared the brand in a statement. “Beauty is not a matter of clothing size, it is a state of mind, an attitude – that certain something that makes each woman enchanting and unique. By extending the collection’s clothing size range, Dolce & Gabbana pays tribute to women, the female form and beauty at its finest.”
Nevertheless, this is not a completely surprising move, as the Italian brand has been known to cast women of all sizes over the past few years. Several notable cury women walked for the brand, including actor Monica Bellucci and models Ashely Graham and Tess McMillan. Along with this news, Dolce & Gabbana vowed to continue working with plus-sized models and cast them in future advertising campaigns and shows.
D&G will start offering pieces with the the size range extension starting with their pre-fall collection, which is currently on sale.
