Plus size retailer Torrid showcased their Spring/Summer 2018 Collection yesterday during New York Fashion Week for the very first time, in a move to increase diversity and inclusiveness in the fashion industry.

According to Torrid designers Liz Munoz and Kim Sippl “The collection is about art and expression—and the fusion of those two things. We also explored the idea that apparel should reflect the many sides of a woman—she’s never just one thing. The overall result is a juxtaposition between feminine and hard-edge artistry”.

The show represented the Torrid woman – bold, beautiful and badass with looks featuring the juxtaposition between hard and soft. Some of the looks included: Hard edge corsets and leather moto jackets with flowy, feminine long maxi dresses for an unexpected contrast that encompasses the many sides of a woman. The collection was also peppered with signature, hand-painted elements.
