THE Gossip singer BETH DITTO has slammed British fashion giant Topshop for failing to stock clothing sized for larger ladies.
Outspoken Ditto turned down an offer to perform a series of instore gigs at the chain because of its sizing stance, and has called on the retailer to offer her the chance to design a fashion line for larger men and women.
She says, "Give me the job. I want to design, I want you to make clothes for big girls, big boys, I want you to make big sizes.
"I don't want just your money or the cred of hanging out with Kate Moss, which is fine, but it's not want I want in life. I want more. I want what she gets.
"I don't think it's fair to put my face somewhere where they would never let me in there to wear their clothes. If they want our music they've got to actually do something to earn it. I can get money anywhere, I don't need your money unless you're going to do it my way.
"They don't want to dress people that look like me, that have a normal body, a bigger body, whatever. I mean I don't really know why they want The Gossip to do things for them, I don't understand because if they saw me in the street they'd never give me the time of day."
Super slim Moss landed a multi-million pound deal to design a clothing range for Topshop, which launches on 1 May (07).
