NYC Fats: Don’t Miss the Re/Dress Indie+ Trunk Show

By | November 8, 2010

Re/Dress Indie+ FlyerThis weekend, Re/Dress NYC is playing host to an indie designer extravaganza, beginning with a fashion show on Friday night. You can be certain that if I weren’t due to be 30,000 feet over New York at the time, I would be there, particularly to see the reveal of Cupcake & Cuddlebunny’s new line. Luckily, my dear Marianne will be on hand to represent. And shop. And wear some possibly-ridiculous hats. I shall instruct her to look extra fat to make up for my absence.

More info can be found at the Indie+ Tumblr. Buy your tickets here.

How fucked is it, and how referential of my fouled perception of myself and others as fat women, that my first reaction to the model in the poster was not, “Oh, pretty”, but “Why is that fat girl wearing so much makeup?”. She is wearing everything that is perfectly appropriate for modeling for a poster. If her exact outfit was on a thin woman I wouldn’t have even noticed. Seeing a fat woman dressed well and made up is so unexpected to me. Fatness and ugliness has been so conflated in my mind that even after two years of stewing in fat acceptance thoughts like that just pop out.
I hate how hard it is to shake free of this culture.
