London will host it's first Plus Size Fashion Week in February 2013. Would you go? What do you think of an event like this?

I think it's nice that the fashion world is starting to focus on more "real" women instead of just the size 0 models of the past. I think there are very few size 0 women in the world and many more average and plus size women so that's where the designers need to focus and who they need to show on the runways. I would think most women would enjoy seeing women like themselves on the runways.

I think most women would like to see more average size models too, but I'm not holding my breath. This London Plus Size Fashion week is really great though, maybe there's hope for the "real" women yet!
