Ashley Graham has left customers confused with her recent campaign she did for a fashion retailer.
Graham has always been championing positive body image in fashion and has always highlighted the need for more curvy models on the runway as well as fashion magazines.
However, her recent collaboration with Rag & Bone shows her modelling for a retailer that do not manufacture clothes for plus-size people.
Graham, who wears a size 16, took to Instagram to post a set of images for a DIY campaign called ‘Ashley by Ashley’. Her fans naturally got excited when they saw the images, as they thought that the brand will be introducing more sizes to cater to curvy women.
“Rag and Bone makes plus sized jeans? Take my money,” one user commented.
Unfortunately, many were disappointed after checking Rag & Bone’s website, as the jeans were only available in the standard sizing range—up to size 32, UK 14.
The tops too, were also only available from XXS to L, which is a UK 4 to UK 14/16. Her fans were confused and voiced out their opinions on her Instagram page.
“So many questions. But first of all what size are you wearing? Because we all know Rag & Bone’s biggest size is 32 but fits like a 27, so are they going plus size now?” a customer asked.
After much confusion, a spokesperson from Rag & Bone told The Independent that the brand will be introducing an extended range of its bestsellers later this year.
