Am I a great artist? It’s hard to say. Did I make a bunch of ’80s drum GIFs for work? Definitely.
Paris and plus-size aren’t two terms that fashionistas often place together, but this week the style capital broke boundaries hosting its first ever plus size fashion week.
Pulp fashion week celebrated curvaceous women displaying designs from French labels like Maryse Richardson and Femme Fabuleuses, and retailers like Forever 21 and Asos Curve.
The week-long fashion festival follows the lead of New York fashion week, which hosted its first ever plus-size show this year.

Gold Katar Dagger
- Dated: circa 19th century
- Culture: Indian
- Measurements: overall length: 18in (460mm). Blade length: 10.5in (265mm)
This is an Indian Katar dagger from the late 18th or early 19th century. These knives are sometimes referred to as Indian Punch daggers, or “Tiger Knives”. The grips are decorated with very intricate and thick scrolling gold work, arranged in floral patterns adorning the grips. The floral work is further highlighted by chasing to add detail to the floral pattern.
The blade is forged form high contrast Indian Wootz Damascus steel and expertly chiselled. The central panels show off the damascus pattern, and the edges and tip polished bright with a very thick armour piercing tip. It has a later, but beautifully made scabbard with pierced brass chape.
