Kelsey Miller of Refinery29 interviewed Natalie Abruzzo for the launch of their new initiative, The 67% Project, which aims to shed light on the invisible majority - aka - plus-size women. Miller wanted to chat with Abruzzo about her documentary, "The Sixty-Six Percent," since her project is highlighting how the majority of women are treated as the minority in women's wear by showcasing the annual event, Full Figured Fashion Week, which creates an equitable space for plus-size women and women's apparel.
