The One Night Stand – ‘In defense of not staying over’

The plus-size market is experiencing a not so quiet revolution. For a very long time the conversation about plus-size fashion was closed off to those in the community, and it wasn’t a topic of interest for a lot of press or those in the fashion industry as a whole. In 2015 we saw more of a dialogue in mainstream media...

Recently I was invited to write a feminist piece by the lovely editor of this magazine who was keen for some “alternative” content. He’d read about some of my campaigning around sexual violence.
