Designer Ashley Nell Tipton is the first plus sized contestant on Project Runway. That alone is huge. Tipton went on to dominate the competition, making it the first ever plus collection to win in the series. The show has been going on for eleven years but has failed to present more body-positive, inclusive styles during that time.
