Addition Elle NYFW SS18

We’e been covering Addition Elle — and the rise non-exclusive fashion, sometimes called “plus-size” — for awhile. So it’s particularly gratifying to see Addition Elle finally grace the NYFW runways.

The Montreal-based fashion brand debuted their Fall Holiday 2017 runway show at New York Fashion Week at Skylight Clarkson Square. This marks the brand’s first monumental show in partnership with IMG and NYFW: The Shows.

The looks were playful, fun, sporty, and chic. One of the shirts said: “Labels are for clothes only.”

Next all we have to do is get some of these models on the rest of the runways, so we can get rid of the “plus size” moniker. And while we’re at it, maybe we can go ahead and remove the word “race” from our vocabulary, too.

Then — label-free — we can all look forward to a kinder, better world.

 
Addition Elle: NYFW SS18

 

This past week, Addition Elle unveiled the latest offerings from top model power house Ashley Graham’s eponymous lingerie lines, Purple Rain and Ritz, alongside social starlet and model Jordyn Wood’s Love & Legend RTW capsule collection and Addition Elle’s Holiday 17’ mainline. The shoes for the show were custom made for each model by Shoes of Prey, further solidifying that style should never be limited by size.

Championing runway inclusivity and fashion democracy, Addition Elle also opened the doors to their first New York City pop up shop, offering looks straight from their runway show as part of a “see now, buy now” retail model.
