Known for taking a stance on fashion–that it should not end at a size 12–Project Runway’s Tim Gunn mentioned in Hollywood Reporter’s Reality Roundtable segment that he would like to see more models who are a size 12 or larger in a future season of the show.
In previous seasons, Gunn has advised designers to be a bit more open-minded when it comes to fashion design. Many designers in the past have felt discouraged during each season’s “Real Women” challenge when they have to design and create clothing for body sizes over a size four.
Gunn believes that designing fashion for plus size figures for a complete season of Project Runway could be an absolute test for all competing designers. If a designer could create plus size fashions, they are able to design for every woman.
Let’s hope this happens!
