Fashion student petitions for more plus size models

Parsons fashion and design student Nayyara Chue petioned for more fuller-size mannequens after finding that her school only had one, Runway Riot reports.

Chue is demanding size 18-24 mannequins for all the students.

“The average woman in the United States is a size 14. As a visionary generation, upcoming designers at such a prestigious institution like Parsons or any other fashion design-oriented school should have open doors to any explorable possibilities in the spectrum, that’s how legendary ideas are born,” the petition reads, according to the report.
