Lauren Chan began her career as a plus-size model in New York City, where she continues to walk the runways for some of the biggest names in fashion. Lauren later became an industry- leading fashion writer and editor at magazines like Glamour and Vogue, where she focused her work on advocating for size inclusion, becoming a pioneer in bringing plus-size fashion to mainstream media.
Despite working in high-fashion, Lauren – a size 14 – never fit into the designer clothing that her smaller peers wore. Instead, she was relegated to cheap, fast-fashion, which perpetuated the narrative that plus-size women are less valuable than their smaller peers–a sentiment that left her equally disheartened and motivated. As a result, Lauren set out to create her own luxury plus-size clothing, and in 2019, she founded Henning, a brand of ethical, luxury womenswear in sizes 12 and up. Henning aims to change fashion’s long-held exclusion of plus-size women and allow them to feel as sharp, high-value, and powerful as they truly are.
How do you define a model?
… as a person who helps others who identify with them feel represented and, more importantly, celebrated.
