During the show, viewers were encouraged to use the hashtag “#IAmSexy” on social media, in another one of Ashley’s groundbreaking campaigns, including Lane Bryant’s recent #PlusIsEqual campaign. The designer is a huge inspiration and promoter of the plus size community, and we celebrate her success.

The models gave their show stopping walks in crop tops, high waisted shorts and lovely lace outfits. Applauding judges Heidi Klum, Zac Posen, Nina Garcia, and Carrie Underwood were very impressed, with Posen quoted as saying, “it’s a big moment not only for the runway, but also for NYFW.”

Plus size fashion makes history, yay!
