NEW YORK, United States — “No, we don’t want anything different,” said Nicolette Mason, her voice cracking with the weary laugh of one tired of repeating herself. “We want to be visible. We want to wear great clothes. We want to participate in the same trends.”
A prominent plus-size blogger, Mason has designed a clothing line for online store Modcloth and is a columnist on the plus-size industry for Marie Claire. But despite being one of the most well-known names in plus-size fashion, she shares a struggle with all women who are a US size 14 and above: a dearth of on-trend, good quality fashion in her size, across the board, from high street stores to luxury brands.
