CFDA Tackles Plus Size Fashion
On Tuesday morning, Universal Standard's Co-Founder CCO Alexandra Waldman was invited to join CFDA Conversation on Fashion; The Plus-Size Market. Moderated by Refinery29’s Editor in Chief Christene Barberich, and joined by designer Christian Siriano and supermodel Candice Huffine,the conversation centered on the current and future state of the plus-size industry, its barriers, opportunities, and overreaching misconceptions.
As our cofounder said,
“the plus-size consumer is addicted to fast fashion, and fast fashion is dictated by huge brands… If your T-shirt costs the same amount as a sandwich, there’s a problem.”
