No heroin chic here! The first ever plus-size fashion week in Paris celebrated womanly curves in all their glory. Dubbed Pulp Fashion Week – the word “pulp” in French conjuring up luscious fruit – the event was organized by Histoire de Courbes, a Paris-based fashion group that celebrates larger women. Weeks after labels like Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Lanvin showed off their Spring 2014 collections at Paris Fashion Week, the Pulp events were a triumph for plus-size-friendly designers and the women who wear them. French labels La Belle Affranchie, Maryse Richardson, Tamboo Bamboo and Femme Fabuleuses were among the brands sported by the models, who strode the runway in styles ranging from lingerie to couture to sportswear. “Now please let’s welcome women with fabulous curves!” the Histoire de Courbes website announced in English. “What better than a real Fashion Show for the Pulp women?” While some in the fashion industry have moved to address concerns over too-thin models – including bans on models who are under age 16 and who  “appear underweight” walking in shows – skinny is still the predominant aesthetic. In September’s New York Fashion Week, Eden Miller became the first designer to show a plus-size label at Fashion Week. Miller’s Cabiria line carries clothes in sizes 12-24.
