Tim Gunn: ‘plus-size advocate’ and Weight Watchers’ style consultant

Tim Gunn, mentor on Project Runway is going to have a daily show The Revolution on ABC. He calls himself a ‘plus-size advocate’ and he signed on as Weight Watchers’ “style consultant” last January.This sounds weird to me. He embraces plus size, and at the same time wants the women to lose weight…

Question of Marie Claire on plus size designers:
“It’s so difficult. Have you seen most of the plus-size sections out there? It’s horrifying. Whoever’s designing for plus-size doesn’t get it. The entire garment needs to be reconceived. You can’t just take a size 8 and make it larger. In my travels, I’ve been an advocate for larger women. I’ve been talking to designers, but only a half-dozen make an effort. Most say, ‘I don’t want a woman who’s a size 10 or 11 wearing my clothes.’ Well, shame on you! It’s not realistic. We need to address real women with real needs. At Parsons, we had fit models that ranged in size from 2 to 10. We’ve got to reconceive clothes for all sizes.”

He’s considering designing a plus-size line…. but then please,Tim… don’t let all plus size women lose weight!
