I imagine the designer of Rue 114, Serwah Asante, to be this really cool, vibrant, and carefree woman. I’ve never met her, but I just get that vibe when I look at her collection. Even her motto is awesome—”Great style should be available in all sizes because fabulous, fierce, kick-ass women come in all sizes!” I couldn’t have said it better myself.
Last week, at Full Figured Fashion Week, her designs hit the runway of the Indie Designers Showcase. The audience inside the Broad Street Ballroom couldn’t help but fall head-over-heels with her African-inspired pieces. There were daring cuts, bold prints, tulle, and amazing prints! They were fun, playful, and full of life. I can honestly say it was my favorite collection of the night.
