I love Re/Dress, NYC’s only size 12+ vintage and resale shop, and I loved doing this piece with Deb Malkin, the proprietress. The Tablet audio/video team rocked it out. I do wish we’d had enough time to shoot pictures over several days or weeks so we could show a trunk show, a zine party, a class, a book reading…I worry that the piece is a little too marketing-y/sell-y, whereas I wanted to show the political aspects of celebrating fat beauty and outsider-dom in general. And I wish we could have shown more of Deb’s alt-beauteous staff. But hey, gotta go with the Voltaire: Le mieux est l’ennemi du bien. The best is the enemy of the good. This piece is good…enough.
