It’s always amusing when the specter of designing a dress for a (gasp!) real
woman glides silently into the “Project Runway” workroom. The horror and disgust at the thought of women with actual breasts and hips sends these “women’s wear” designers into fits worthy of a gaggle of Victorian hysteria victims, leaving you wondering where, exactly, they’ve put the fainting couch.
Immediately, the word “fat” comes up, followed rapidly by discussions of how
more woman means more fabric.
