FATOPIA: The Celebration of Flesh
Size Inclusive Collection
New York, NY
Doyeon Yoni Yu
Welcome to FATOPIA - The Celebration of Flesh. I am bringing body positivity and body inclusivity into fashion.
2.1 billion people in this world, 30% of world population, are overweight. In this country itself, 67% are beyond size 14, however, our society is fat phobic and discriminates people by their size.
Through my thesis I’m redefining the concept of ‘fat’. This Word is not an insult, it’s just an adjective that means you have more tissues in your body. However, our society attaches too much hatred and discrimination to the word ‘fat’. We need to remove the stigma of this word and accept it just as it is. To achieve that, from my perspective, I am unapologetically designing FASHION for FAT bodies and EVERY bodies, and ultimately providing ‘choices’ that we’re missing right now.
My goal is to empower everybody to love their bodies and take a stand against fat stigma. Also, to truly celebrate body equality and liberate us all from this fat phobic world.
