Plus-sized models are not appreciated as they ought to be, knowing fully well that almost all African women have the tendency to be plus-sized. Even if they were skinny before marriage,when they get married and after childbirth, they become plus-sized. We don’t appreciate them (curvy and plump models), we chase after skinny models but the truth is the westerners are beginning to accept the fact that there should be a place for the plus-sized in the fashion world. In the recently concluded New York Fashion Week, they had plus-sized models everywhere. Here in Nigeria, it’s difficult to see three plus-sized models on a runway show and that’s not nice. Most people who come to watch the shows are plump, but if they discover the outfits being showcased are for skinny people, they wouldn’t be motivated to go for them. A lot of people don’t know, but plus-sized modeling is a goldmine that’s yet to be harnessed in Nigeria.
