Ashley Tipton's Plus-Size Victory

Here at UrbanOG, we celebrate and embrace diversity. Everyone on earth is made up of such specific details that make each person a truly unique gift to the universe. It's a beautiful thing to inhabit a world where we all have different faces, skin colors, shapes, and sizes. The fashion industry has already begun making steps to include fuller figured women. Seeing rock band Gossip's bad-ass frontwoman/GODDESS Beth Ditto walk the runway at Marc Jacobs' Spring 2016 show at New York Fashion Week was an electrifying moment! There was even a Full-Figured Fashion Week in June. Such inspiring stuff!

So when Ashley Nell Tipton was announced as the winner of Project Runway's Season 14, it was a moment to be savored. Being the first plus-size designer to compete AND win is a major achievement and a huge leap forward in mainstream fashion. As you all may know, UrbanOG began carrying plus-size fashion this year and we were absolutely thrilled to see a plus-size gal and designer achieving a well-deserved moment in the spotlight.

Ms. Tipton's designs are dreamy, feminine, and fun, letting her customer base embrace their beautiful bodies and be fashion-forward and trendy at the same time. Her Project Runway finale collection included everything from shift dresses, rompers, matching sets, and gorgeous airy skirts.

Cheers to all body-positive women out there! And congrats to Ashley Tipton on her groundbreaking win and undeniable talent! 

It's an exciting time- UrbanOG's plus-size section currently features the latest trends and is constantly expanding. Keep your eyes peeled for more, ladies!
