    Fashion weeks are not the friendliest events for larger women — or anyone else not tall, slim and perfectly put together. But Hayley Hasselhoff says there’s no reason why plus-sized models shouldn’t get the same recognition as stick-thin ones.

    Lindsey Vonn struts the runway — with crutches Feb 8, 2014 12:00 AM
    They weren’t ski poles. They were crutches. But when Lindsey Vonn raised them in the air triumphantly Thursday evening, she got the same kind of cheers she might have gotten at the bottom of a mountain, after a victorious ski run. Even if this wasn’t a ski run but a runway. Vonn, the 2010 Olympic gold medalist who had to forgo the Sochi Games due to a bad knee injury, was clearly making the most of her time off the slopes as she joined some 20 other women at the Red Dress Collection, an annual event that has become the traditional kickoff to New York Fashion Week.

    Spanish fashion brand DelPozo getting attention Feb 7, 2014 12:00 AM
    Luxury fashion can sometimes look like a fast-food business, Josep Font says, with items that are mass-produced and mediocre quality despite high prices.

    Women who go shopping for skiwear next fall should find it a lot easier to get a good fit, thanks to new sizing options launched by outerwear manufacturers Spyder and Burton. But it’s function as well as fit that’s getting an overhaul for the 2014-15 season. Watch for outerwear for men and women designed to look just as chic in Brooklyn as it does in Breckenridge. Those were among the trends unveiled at the 60th annual SnowSports Industries America trade show.
