Every body is a potential customer

Their sentiment is a good one, even if the title of Glamour magazine’s lead pictorial for their June 2010 issue is a little too far sweeping: Every Body Is A Hot Body. Featuring poster-girl for the ‘curvy movement’, model Crystal Renn, the pictorial draws contrast between body shapes by placing Renn alongside Alessandra Ambrosio and Brooklyn Decker. While Glamour succeeds in the contrast (Photoshop appears to have helped the cause) the question still remains as to whether the focus on curvy as sexy is part of a larger society trend, or merely clever marketing. Call me jaded, but I suspect the latter.

He was 5 when his teacher wrote on his report card “Daniel can’t sit still.” Taking it as a compliment, he’s been on the go ever since. Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is Fashionising.com’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views. He is one of Fashionising.com’s co-founders.
