Fashion Plus Beauty

Illustration by Jeanette Getrost
Project Runway's 14th season had a lot of fantastic designers as usual, but my favorite from the very beginning was Ashley Nell Tipton.

Plus-sized and super-cute with lavender-colored hair, she was my choice for the win.

And win she did.

She's not just a plus-sized woman herself, but she is the first designer on the show who wants to specifically design clothes for plus-sized women. She designed for straight-size models during the show, and those designs were beautiful too, but in her final show at New York Fashion Week, she showed her plus-size collection and used plus-sized models on the catwalk. It made history for Project Runway.

See some of the winning designs HERE.  They're gorgeous.
