Real women >0 update

This afternoon, I delivered some of my Real Women >0 letters to clothes shops on and around Upper Street.

Most of the shop managers I spoke to were really encouraging and supportive of the campaign. The woman at Jigsaw wants to sign up; Noa Noa have added me to their events list; and Joe Allen himself had a friendly chat, making the point that as a tailor, he follows, not dictates, the customer’s size.

The woman in Palette London gave a slightly different view. She pointed out that most designers – herself included – have a particular image or size in mind when they create a design; and the same design, fabric, etc simply won’t automatically translate to all sizes. This is a fair point – different styles suit different figures – but not a reason to cater for a narrow size range; rather it’s an argument to embrace a range of designs as well as a range of sizes. I will wait with interest to see what other responses come in.
