With inspirational young models like Madeline Stuart walking in NYFW, plus-size models like Tess Holliday signing major contracts and even rising stars聽Andreja Pejic becoming the first trans model to star in a national makeup campaign, it鈥檚 evident that conventional beauty standards are no longer cutting it.

Retailers are also recognizing that plus-size, gender-neutral聽fashion not only sends a great message of inclusivity, it鈥檚 also a major money maker (we鈥檙e talking nine billion dollar a year industry). Recently, Target USA聽released their latest collection for Ava & Viv, their plus-size line, but their Australian stores have some totally different but equally聽major聽plans.

In a move to appeal and become more relatable to the聽common聽shopper, Target Australia intends to聽unveil plus-size mannequins up to AU size 20 in all their stores (in case you were wondering, that鈥檚 a size 16 in the US). The average dress size is a 14 in Australia (size 12 in the US), so this makes a whole lot of sense that shoppers might want to actually see their sizes reflected in the mannequins that聽are modelings their clothes.

Retailer Target Posts Drop In Fourth Quarter Profits

According to the Herald Sun, Target Australia鈥檚 Managing Director Stuart Machin has expressed that he hopes the change will 鈥渟tart a new conversation in the fashion industry, and trigger some change.鈥 This is a long overdue conversation and so inspiring.

The awesome thing is Target US actually rolled out their own聽plus size mannequins back in 2014 in sizes upward to US size 16. YAAAAS. Amazing.
