Torrid is a well-known and respected plus-size retailer where women can go for everything from wide-fit shoes and lingerie to staples like denim and dresses in sizes 10-30. They're also now the first plus-size women's fashion brand to show at New York Fashion Week: The Shows as part of IMG. The fashion show will happen on September 12 of this year. Inclusive fashion has made strides in the past few years, but there's still so far to go. Luckily Torrid is working to take those steps.
For their third-annual Model Search competition, the top 10 finalists will compete on the NYFW runway, previewing the brand's spring 2018 collection, including 40 looks showcasing the season's upcoming trends. The winners of this round of the competition will head to the third and final round of the competition where fans choose the winner.
The winner will be the "Face of Torrid 2018," along with securing a modeling contract and wardrobe from the brand. Contestants were chosen from either online submissions or in-person casting calls for U.S. and Canadian fans of Torrid. You'll be seeing the Face of Torrid in campaigns and at various store openings and events all year, so it's awesome that the winner comes from being a fan of the clothing retailer to one of its most important representatives.
Check out the revolutionary show this September 12.
