While fashion week for women who eat half meals a day rages on, Lee Lee, owner of Lee Lee’s Valise has created a concept in New York for plus sized women. Plus sized fashion week encompasses fashions created for women size 14 and up (with some allowances for the below 14). A woman with more to love in her own right, Lee Lee tells Lynn Yaeger of the Village Voice that Plus sized fashion week was created to give a voice as it were to women who are left with dowdy fashions because of their size. Her aim is to create this regularly occurring event to highlight designs that appeal to curvier women.
