Recognizing that the plus-size consumer is still underserved by mainstream fashion, the Fashion Institute of Technology hosted a forum Wednesday night titled, “The Business of Curves: Fashion’s Future.”
Speaking on the panel were Emme, the plus-size model, author and advocate; Catherine Schuller, fashion event planner, educator at FIT and image consultant (and former plus-size Ford model), and Susan Moses, celebrity stylist, author and brand ambassador. The panel was moderated by Fern Mallis, creator of New York Fashion Week, industry consultant and author.
