Miss NYC Plus Makes New Inroads in Fashion Industry

Bringing out the beauty in women outside of the established New York fashion world is Chanel Clark's goal in establishing the Miss NYC Plus organization. "Living in New York City, when it comes to fashion, you don't see plus sizes," she said, talking about what led her to provide a showplace for them. "I felt it was overdue."

She produced the first Miss NYC Plus Pageant in March this year, offering a chance for women size 12 to 26 to gather at an event all their own. With professional consulting from wardrobe stylist Jaquette E. Jones and runway coach Robert Mallory, himself a plus-size person, those who entered the pageant learned to express themselves in the way they dress and move.

Talking about the response to the pageant, Clark said, "It was surreal, overwhelming. I never expected such a response! We filled every seat and people were even standing up. It was phenomenal."

As awareness spreads about the unhealthy effect the super-thin runway models have on young girls, it is not just the plus-sized ladies who are responding enthusiastically to her project. "People from in and outside of the plus community have been pulling for us," Clark remarked. "It's inspiring me to do more in New York City for plus models on the catwalk."
