How Prabal Gurung Is Challenging The Sizing System

Designer Prabal Gurung has made persistent efforts to make the fashion industry more inclusive, but some apparently aren’t ready for his pioneering vision.

The┬áNew York City-based designer, who describes himself as ‘the product of a feminist’ (his mother), has always offered his own clothes up to a size 22, in a bid to dress all women.

But the public didn’t really take notice until earlier this year, when Gurung, 38, launched a collaboration with Lane Bryant.

The collection, fronted by Ashley Graham, was heralded as a major moment that saw a high-fashion designer take a conscious step to change the way sizes are regulated in the industry.
