So Frustrated With the Fashion Industry

Filippa Hamilton Photoshopped Image - Ralph Lauren AdWarning: Rant up ahead...

Over at Project Inner Beauty I talk about one reason why I dislike the fashion industry.

It's so frustrating that many designers and fashion magazines STILL think that the only way to sell clothes is to have skinny models wear them. What kind of blind world do they live in? Take a look around, people, not everyone is skinny!

If fashion houses like Ralph Lauren continue to alienate women like this, they're not going to survive much longer. Yes, the fashion industry's old business model is out of sytle. More and more women are spending their time online where there are a plethora of companies waiting to serve their needs. Women are tired of looking at fashion magazines that constantly bombard them with images of skinny women or women who have been photo-chopped to look skinny.

It's time for the fashion industry to evolve...

Ok, I'm off my soapbox for now ;)
