It is an exciting time in fashion for women of all sizes and nowhere more so probably than the plus size market where a whole new crop of designers are making some trendy fashion-forward looks. ABC's juju Chang has a preview. Reporter: For plus size women shopping for high fashion cannot only be difficult but downright demoralizing. Go to the store and it only comes in a size 10 and you might be a 12, you might be a 16, you might be an 18 or 20 and it crushes you. Reporter: Her struggle to find trendy outfits in plus sizes inspired fashionista Courtney smith to follow her heart. Starting her own clothing line called rum and coke. Sold online and through social media. I think it's about time that we shine the light on bigger women on plus size women. Reporter: Yeah, so no more M ochlt ocho och mumus. Indicating to plus size women who are often overlooked. We had a little bit of a misconception in the plus size fashion market before that women really wanted to cover themselves, become invisible and what is changing now is the plus size customer is saying that she doesn't have to abide by those old-fashioned rules and she's breaking out in stripes and great prints and bright colors. Reporter: The average American woman we are wears a size 14 which means 67% of the population and that majority is silent no more. Demanding high fashion in higher sizes, one fashion blogger even creating a hashtag, plus size please which took hold across social media pressuring stores to take notice. This is very VA VA voom. Like it's very sexy. Reporter: Another popular brand, partnering with Nordstrom enjoying a loyal following due to their high fashion sensibilities. They've taken a dip and will see success. Reporter: Creating positive figures for both women and for the fashion industry. For "Good morning America," juju Chang, ABC news, New York.
