To affect change it is most important to be proactive, vocal and realistic about your goals. Consider this: plus- size women banned together as a fashion movement over 20 years ago and now they have a recognizable image in fashion.
The acceptance you see today for plus-size women in fashion started with BBW magazine and editor-in-chief Carol Shaw. Today we see plus-size models on the runway, in fashion magazines and they have a greater selection of designer clothing available to them.
Bella Petite Magazine and editor-in-chief Ann Lauren are here to create change for petite women. Utilizing the global reach of the internet we can effectuate change at a much more rapid pace, than ever before. We have already seen fast growth and major recognition in the last two years, but there is still work to do. Free to subscribe to Bella Petite!
We will achieve fashion industry acceptance for petite women with your support. Petite women do represent the most powerful market in retail, as we hold a majority of the buying power. That means our voice counts and all we have to do is make ourselves heard, just as the plus-size women have done.
Bella Petite has laid the foundation for you to build upon. Consider that no other mainstream fashion magazine (Vogue, Elle, Bazaar, etc.) accept new model submissions, hold open calls, or provide opportunity for petite models as we do. Nor do they feature petite models in high fashion spreads. When millions of women join us our work is done!
