This month Pasazz.net continues to meet and discover new people making the plus size clothing world an exciting and vibrant place for all of us.
This month in fact, we’ve met up with Michael Kaplan, who’s the founding partner and CEO of an exciting new plus size clothing store, Fashion To Figure. Michael is also the great grandson of plus size fashion pioneer Lane Bryant.
The interview has been published today, therefore be one of the first to read it! You can find it here.
For all you curious cats… here’s a snippet of what’s in the interview:
Pasazz: From a male’s point of view, what is your opinion of the plus size woman’s image as depicted (or perhaps not such much) in the media? Do you feel there is a lack of exposure of the curvy woman’s beauty in the media?
Michael: I think there has been a lot of progress over the last 5 years in increasing the profile of plus size women in the media. I still don’t think we have come far enough. Remember that I come from a family where my great grandmother had to fight for years just to run an advert in the New York Herald Tribune for the maternity clothing that she made. Our market has always been under-served and under-represented. That is part of the reason why there is so much excitement about FTF.
This wonderful and very true.
