I had a great chat to Julie Jacobson from New Zealand Woman's Weekly about all things Boom. There were a few weird sub editing things in the piece - like that they put "fat" in quotation marks, and that I was called Joanne in one place, and I felt it odd that they didn't mention that the youth charity I work with is for queer youth (although there is nothing subtle about all the rainbows I'm wearing) and I wish I hadn't let the photographer put me in pony tails with ribbon bows cos that's not me, but, y'know, learning...
Today House of Boom has its very own Spinoff piece The 'fatshion' label making ethical clothes for fat people
I talked to the lovely Megan of Mode & Methodology about the design process involved in setting up House of Boom, and the challenges faced by fat people who want to dress up nice. Megan is straight-sized but is really great at recognising that her shopping experience is very different from that of others.
