After so many seasons of calling for diversity on the runway, Becca McCharen-Tran of Chromat throws open the door and finally answers the call. Yes, I’m talking about full diversity and inclusion of all who love fashion.
Plus-size (hate that we call all women who are not stick thin this term), skinny (but not sickly), trans-gender, shorter women, taller women, women of all shades and ethnicities. Everything about the Chromat Spring 2018 collection shows McCharen-Tran’s creativity. From the semi-acoustic electronic music by artist Suzi Analogue, the backdrop of Chromat models spinning on jagged edged crystals, and especially every single look travelling down the runway.
Striking the audience right out the gate Analogue sang out, “I’m every woman in me.” The opening look, a strategically tailored, denim crop top and matching G-string. Many an array of harnesses and detailed necklaces and bracelets. It is clear every swimsuit, G-string, dress, top, pant, and skirt was specifically made for curvy bodies, not meant to cover them up or hide them.
