BRIDGE Big and Tall model Steven Green advocates for inclusivity, with a fashion flashmob during NYFW

The Bigger Picture proclaims the spotlight for plus-size men during NYFW. A plus size campaign, co-hosted by BRIDGE's Steven Green along with other big and tall male models, it advocates for size inclusivity in the fashion industry. The campaign was accompanied by a flash mob fashion segment sponsored by Johnny Bigg in Times Square, New York City.

"Can you see the bigger picture? That’s the question we are asking the fashion industry. This year during New York Fashion Week, we demanded an answer."

The lack of diversity and inclusion for Big & Tall on the runway during fashion week has been a pain point for many years after being treated as a minority within the industry when in reality; they represent the majority with over 70% of the United States population considered “Plus Size.” 

An important message was delivered to the fashion world withthe support and participation of BRIDGE and its plus-size male talent.

We asked Steven for his thoughts on how the event was developed and the impact he felt it made on the fashion industry.

"It started out as an idea to simply do an editorial style shoot with 4 models who had all worked with Savage X Fenty. We decided in conversation that we all have similar views when it comes to the lack of representation for brawn models in the industry.

We decided we wanted to make a bigger impact by including other brawn models from around the world to come and be a part of a flashmob in the middle of Times Square to make a bold statement about brawn representation."

"Showcasing street style and elevated fashion, the big and tall men showed up!

It was great catching up with other model friends whilst making new ones and being able to swap stories, tips and share industry insights.

We showcased ourselves with a small runway segment turning the heads of Fashion Week attendees as they stopped, stared, and took photos and videos of us doing our thing.

Although many things didn’t go according to plan, the impact was felt and we’re not letting up anytime soon!"
