At the end of my last post, I tagged a vid of Simian Mobile Disco ft Beth Ditto. This got me thinking. Beth Ditto. She's a pretty unique woman don't you think?! Not only is she a kick arse singer in a band called 'The Gossip'. She's inspiration to
Beth's Topshop range, modelled by curvy women.
Beth Ditto is an inspiration, and her clothes line isn't just a range of eccentric patterns and colours for 'plus size' women. It's a campaign and an awakening. I have curvy friends, and we go shopping together a lot, yet when we went in to shops like Topshop, there were no clothes suitable for my friends, and it's really sad to see. I am so glad Beth Ditto did something about it. She is a fabulous woman! I just hope other stores follow the lead.
"This world that we live in makes dysphoria of the body. People can't leave the house because they think they're 'too ugly', and get insane plastic surgery. Gee, I wonder why they do that to themselves? The fashion industry makes people feel like total s***. But, at the same time, I really adore some designs. I really wish I could have all these clothes, but none of that stuff would fit me and those designers couldn't give a f***." - Beth Ditto.
