My new favourite website

Allen, Bedford Ave. (photo by Greg Speck)

Everyone should check out The Manfattan Project post-haste.

In the words of the moderator:

[The Manfattan Project is a] collection of photographs of stylish everyday people in New York City. These people are beautiful, they are well-dressed, they are confident. They are also, without apologies or contradictions, FAT.

Hana Malia, Union Square Farmer’s Market

I never realised how rarely I see the everyday street fashion of fat people until this site came along.

Jess, FIT.

Well, go on then. Clickety click your way over there.

    Great find! The lack of curvy figures on Street Style blogs has always bugged me – I know The Satorialist weighed in on the issue saying ““When I am shooting on the street older women and larger size women often say ‘no’ to my request to shoot them…. I think they have a real suspicion about how the image will be used. I also think there continues to be a growing disconnect between the fashion community and ‘average’ women in general.” Personally i think we just need to see more of ths, so that it breaks down the divide between “plus” and so called “normal” size fashion.

    This is so great. I love street style, but so many blogs I would otherwise read feature mostly the thin to extremely thin, which is something of an ED trigger for me.
