London designer Mark Fast added three plus-size models to his runway show on Saturday, and a couple of his staffers lost their minds over it. A stylist and a creative designer were so horrified at the idea of three women sizes 12-14 walking down a runway that they quit their jobs. They were replaced by freelancers, and the show went on. Mark Fast's creative director said the models were chosen because, "We wanted women to know they don't have to be a size zero to wear a Mark Fast dress- curvier women can look even better in one."
