Fatphobia and The Push For Size Inclusivity with Marielle Elizabeth

Marielle Elizabeth is a body activist and writer in the ethical fashion community, who advocates for broader size inclusion and radical body acceptance. Throughout her social media platforms, she shares not only her lived experience as a plus size person, but also the ways in which we can all be striving to be kinder to the skin we’re in.

She is also a change-making contributor to Vogue, where she writes brilliantly about issues including but not limited to:

"Am I An Ethical Fashion Mean Girl?" and

So Your Body Changed During the Pandemic. Here’s How to Rebuild Your Wardrobe”

In short, Marielle is here to make Slow Fashion EASIER for Plus Size Babes. She is one of my favourite people to follow on social media, and in my humble opinion, one of the most important voices for positive change. In this episode we unpack fashion’s fatphobia and sustainable fashion’s shortcomings when it comes to size inclusivity.
