The fashion industry celebrates visual beauty in two:

the clothing worn and  the body it adorns.

Yet the appreciation expressed of what is body beautiful

is far from all encompassing –

often limited to a specific descriptor of

Euro-centric features, above average height, super-slim physique.

Thus, essentially negating the total scope of beauty,

which exists in the general populace.

If beauty is in the “eyes of the beholder’,

surely readers of fashion publications and attendants of runway presentations

would delight in seeing beauty, which mirror aspects of themselves in

models employed

clothing silhouette designed

images displayed

There is a public (and to some extent – an industry) hue and cry,

which is steadily gaining momentum –

challenging visuals of beauty, which steadfastly adhere

to historical preferences of an expected and accepted image status quo.

Fashion bloggers, are the trailblazers who are

 paving the path towards a more inclusive imagery of beauty/style.

Meet a few of these fashion ‘democratic demographics’ bloggers.
