Ashley Graham Makes Plus-sized Women Proud On The NYFW Runway.

Ashley Graham may not have a skinny body like Alexandra Ambrosio but the plus-sized model is breaking barriers in the fashion industry.

The 28-year-old American model brought curves to the catwalk as she displayed her latest lingerie collection for young women at New York Fashion Week.

Ashley showed off her range for Canadian retailer Addition Elle, alongside her fellow curvy models – Sabina Karlsson and Kylie Jenner’s best friend Jordyn Woods.

In an interview at the event, Jordyn told Entertainment Tonight: “Ashley Graham definitely made plus-size modelling more mainstream.

“Before it wasn’t as trendy, and as I started to hop on the wave as well, it’s now expanding and we’re really creating a little fashion democracy.”

Ashley doesn’t care about her body size. In fact, she’s making the best out of it without having to worry about what or how she eats. The popular plus-sized model granted an interview to The New York Post at the NYFW event.

“I had chicken fried rice last night, and I had a lot of it,”she said.

“And I was like, ‘Why did I do that?’”

The heavily-built model also revaled her love for Chinese food.

Ashley Graham has appeared on the cover of Elle Quebec, as well as other fashion magazines like VogueHarper’s Bazaar, Glamour, and Elle.

In addition, she appeared in several Levi’s campaigns.

Earlier this year, she became the first plus-size model to appear on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

Ashley says:

“I was a girl in middle school who never had representation of a body like mine… I also went through high school thinking that I was ugly and fat because I had cellulite and, like, fat in weird places and nobody had a body like mine… And you have seen so many different types of bodies in this runway show, some of them were in clothes, some of them were in lingerie, and young girls get to see what they look like.”
