A smartly dressed lady sits in front of a smartly tailored, silver and fit sheet.
The sheet is designed by designer Paul Smith to reflect her life’s experience and provide her with an active lifestyle.
The woman sits in the seat of the black suit, which has an open back and a high collar.
There is also a large mesh panel on the back of the sheet, which allows for more movement.
A black dress and a dark brown sweater complete the ensemble.
Smith’s design includes a zipper to prevent a leaky suit from being pulled down during the day.
He says he wanted to reflect on the “unfairness” that the fashion industry has experienced over the last couple of decades.
“I think it’s really important to reflect what is going on around you, because that’s the real world,” he said.
We are constantly being bombarded by advertisements, he added.
I think we’re all in the same boat with this fashion industry.
It’s like when I was a kid and we were always on TV talking about how cute we were and how smart we were.
We didn’t have to look like we were that smart to be successful.
After his design was unveiled, Smith was inspired to create the suit, a style he called a “glamorous, chic, casual suit.”
Smith says he feels a responsibility to provide a fashion experience for people who are overweight or obese.
While he doesn’t feel pressure to create a suit that is stylish, he said he has to “work within my limitations.”
“There’s a big difference between making a suit and doing something cool and fashionable,” he explained.
