Loving: Marina Rinaldi’s #WomenAreBack Campaign

I was flipping through my Feedly yesterday and was blown away by this amazing photo of fashion blogger Tanesha Aswathi of Girl With Curves. Tanesha is a lovely girl and beautiful to boot but man, this particular pic really got me. I was delighted to discover that it’s part of the new #WomenAreBack campaign by plus size luxury powerhouse Marina Rinaldi (sister brand to Max Mara) that launched during Milan Fashion Week. Leave it to an Italian designer to be at the forefront of stretching the definition of high style and high fashion! We haven’t forgotten that it was Vogue Italia that made history and caused quite a stir with its all black models issue. So, bravo to Marina Rinaldi for making no bones about including a woman’s body in women’s fashion!


While I’m not plus size, I’m also not sample size so I sprinkle my fashion blog reads with a little bit of everything for a well-rounded take on real-life style and I applaud design houses that take a broader view of style. It was lovely to discover some of my other regular reads included in this campaign: Marie Denee of The Curvy Fashionista and Gabi Gregg of Gabi Fresh and I’m happy to discover some new bloggers, Edith Dohmen from Style Has No Size and the gorgeous Iris Tinunin of Stylosophique.

The Women Are Back campaign photos were taken by Riccardo Vimercati and here’s a video that highlights the featured bloggers.

Fun, right!

    Yay curvy girls! I love this I think there is a backlash for the one size fits all woman. Even where I live a plus sized bridal shop opened up recently. So awesome!

    That's great Dana! I'm looking forward to the day when we do away with the 'plus size' label all together and it will all be just 'fashion.'

    “Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long)
    so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say,
    I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m
    still new to everything. Do you have any recommendations for first-time blog writers?
    I’d definitely appreciate it.”
