Designer collaborations in the plus size fashion world never happen. Never. So, when I heard that the incomparable Isabel Toledo was designing a capsule collection for Lane Bryant—my heart skipped a beat. I adore her! If you love her too, you’ll be happy to know that the exclusive Isabel Toledo Collection for Lane Bryant debuted online today. I’m ready to shop…are you?
I’m just going to come out and say it…I love Elann Zelie. Seriously, who else dares to step out of the so-called “fashion box?” In her latest Zelie For She collection, Elann shows us what you get when you mix Barbie, 50’s fashion, and Sex and the City. You might think it’s a strange combo, but just take a look at the pieces below.
Say hello to the Zelie for She fall 2013 collection! It launched today featuring the beautiful Kelly of MasqueMag.com. This is Elann Zelie’s second collection and if there is anyone passionate about fashion and dressing a woman’s curves, it’s definitely Elann! I’m lucky to call her my friend and am so in love with this Forever Young collection.
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.
I know we often complain about the lack of fashionable plus size clothing. But, the truth is, if you live in the U.S or U.K. we have the best selection in the world. That’s my opinion. I bet we never think about how plus woman in other countries deal with the lack of fashion where they live.
There will be a time in our lives when we need “the” dress. I’m not talking about a wedding dress either. I’m talking about a special occasion dress or evening gown that is classy, chic, and constructed beautifully. I think designer Tadashi Shoji was born so he could create these designs for us and bring them into our fashion lives. Just sayin’!
As a certified IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel fan I appreciate the classic look and fit of her pieces. I just happen to have the lookbook to her lastest collection, “Cinema Retro”. And it definitely embraces that. It transitions into spring with her signature silhouettes, retro prints, and great colors.
