Gone are the days when working in the fashion industry meant constantly being "one stomach flu away from your goal weight," to borrow a line from the "The Devil Wears Prada." In recent seasons, a wider range of body types have seen representation on the runway — and junk food is not just indulged in, it's celebrated.
At Chromat's Fall 2018 show, that meant a body-diverse cast of models parading down the runway in swimwear and form-fitting dresses with Cheetos strapped to their waists or energy drinks peeking out of pockets. A few models even popped open their bags of cheesy snacks and began munching just before reaching the flashing cameras at the end of the catwalk.
Chromat's Becca McCharen-Tran isn't the first designer to align herself closely with junk food. Alexander Wang has famously served 7-Eleven slurpees, Hooters hot wings and gas station packaged snacks at his raging afterparties, while Jeremy Scott based a whole Moschino collection on McDonalds' golden arches and Telfar collaborated with White Castle. As an office full of editors who prefer to stock up on Cheez-Its rather than celery for fashion week, we're all for it.
