In honor of Fashion Week, Vogue's September Issue, and all the fun the comes with fall fashion, we'll be talking about plus-size fashion, otherwise known as "fatshion"! Plus-size style boasts its own beautiful, unapologetic brand of contemporary fashion, and we've curated a range of writing that aims to capture both its political roots and unique aesthetic.
Fashion is often described as fickle and soulless by critics. While they are not wrong, they aren’t right, either. Fashion can make social change.

As a self-identified queer plus-sized woman, issues of taking up space and 'fitting into' clothes from a limited wardrobe are things I contend with daily.
