This past fashion season, there was chatter about the return of ultrathin models to the runway. If you found yourself watching show after show, wondering if there were fewer plus-size models on the runways, you weren’t wrong. Data collected by Vogue Business and published this week proves that to be true.
In an analysis of 9,137 looks across 219 shows in New York, London, Milan, and Paris during the recent fashion weeks, only 17 brands included at least one plus-size (U.S. size 14-plus) look. That means that 95.6 percent of looks were worn by models in U.S. sizes zero to four. And just 3.8 percent were worn by midsize models (sizes six to 12).
