After 5 years of opening Milan Fashion Week, designer Elena Miroglio's plus-size clothing line Elena Miro was kicked off the official schedule.
Mario Boselli, the head of the National Chamber of Italian Fashion, gave a bullshiz reason for why Miroglio got the boot:
"Some labels just weren't in line with what ready-to-wear week should be. We wanted to champion the values of creativity to reaffirm Milan's role in the world."
Riiight. They were in line for the last 5 years, but all of sudden they aren't anymore? Shady.
Despite the snub, Elena still held her show because she believes:
"Every kind of woman should be represented on the catwalk. This kind of soft woman likes to dress like everyone else."
Good for her!
