Chic, accessible, modern with a NYC twist of glam; that is DKNY.

Every time another instance of curvy acceptance occurs, I can't help but do a happy dance (literally). Franca Sozzani, editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia, has been quoted saying the following about curvy women "Why should these women slim down?

Her strong words are not all she has done for the community, she has devoted an entire section of the Vogue Italia
website to the full figured & fabulous ; V Curvy
