The power of plus

"The Power of Plus will leave you feeling inspired, motivated, and ready to push for real change, as well as confident and encouraged to embrace yourself, just as you are. This is essential reading for anyone who truly cares about the future of fashion, and for anyone who believes in the power of being yourself." —Versha Sharma, editor in chief, Teen Vogue

“The fashion industry has long been exclusionary, prioritizing the thin ideal and whiteness as the pinnacle of beauty at the expense of the majority of people who buy clothes. But as Gianluca Russo chronicles in this magnificent book, fashion can’t deny its destiny: to become more inclusive. Gianluca, who has long held fashion accountable for its errors, and the lineup he curates for compelling roundtables, offer a beacon of hope that the future of fashion can be much different than its past, an industry that serves instead of excludes. Fashion is dawning on a new day, and Gianluca is leading the charge.” —Evette Dionne, author of Lifting as We Climb and Weightless

“The Power of Plus is an informative, nuanced, and empathetic look into the plus-size fashion industry and the trailblazers behind it. Gianluca has lovingly crafted an accessible and essential piece of fashion literature.” —Shannon Purser, actress on Stranger Things and Sierra Burgess Is a Loser
