Fat Shaming: Are the Chubby Chicks Winning?
I believe that there is this ongoing issue of thicker women who are given shit for flaunting their belly rolls and curves. Even as a thick girl, I'm put in between this issue because I am placed between what society accepts and how we should love ourselves. The weird thing about it is that I am on both sides of the fence. The skinny perspective makes me think about a person's health, but not as much as how disgusted I am by the appearance of someone's cellulite or un-proportioned body. As cruel and harsh as that sounds, I have a Love-Hate relationship for Fat Chicks. I am all for accentuating curves, but on both ends some people just cant pull off wearing specific items of clothing. Normally, I'm not really fond of women who dress a little more risqué and at times Slut Shamming is another issue I'd rather put aside for another Blog Post. I feel like a hypocrite at times, but this is how I really feel.
Hello, Kittens! My name is KIKA. I am 21 years old. A recent graduate from the Fashion Institute of Technology. And I have officially become a Free Lance Fashion Designer. Like many designers, I see the world through various perspectives and I am greatly inspired by many things. Other than the trends and the history of fashion, I fancy video games, art and cutesy stuff that brings me back to a nostalgic era where looking through rose colored glasses was my motto of life. I am working on developing my brand to make it as close to how I want it to be in my dreams.
I design for women who aren’t afraid of their style or personality. A woman should be proud of where she came from, but who she is now. I am obsessed with color and subtlety and minimalism is just not me. Maybe for others, but I believe you can walk into a room and bring attention to others with out saying a thing. The social butterfly, the dinner party enthusiast and museum aficionado are the kind of women I am inspired by.
I do custom garments for any occasion. Please email me at Designsbykika@gmail.com for any requests or inquiries.
