A constant for me, when walking through a department store, is I always see these cute clothes in the misses and juniors section. My first thought is always, “Why don’t they make that in my size. Even though things are starting to change, there are still lots of designers that haven’t got with the program yet. I am sure each of us have a list of dream designers we want to offer plus size apparel. I thought I would share a few of my top choices.
My number one choice would have to be Betsy Johnson. I love her youthful whimsy and frilly feminine looks with a touch of edge. Known for her celebration of the exuberant, the embellished and the over the top, Betsey has been rocking the fashion industry with her unique and original designs since the 1960’s. That is about 50 years in the fashion design industry. Don’t you think for such a forward thinking designer, its time to get with the times and offer people of all sizes your fashions?
Here are some of my favorite pieces Betsy Johnson is offering:
The fashion designer behind A.L.C. She is known for her contemporary designs. Andrea Lieberman takes all of your closet essentials to the next level. I love all those basic pieces that have little details that make them spectacular standouts in your wardrobe. Its time to take your designs to the next level, and start offering to us curvy ladies.
Here are a few of my favorite pieces from the A.L.C. line:
Tracy Reese has two different lines, the eponymous line and plenty by Tracy Reese. Both lines are very different from each other, but the one thing they have in common is they are ultra feminine. Before starting her own lines she had worked with other designers like Perry Ellis. I love her use of color and print. And since most of her designs already lend themselves to the shape of a curvy woman, why isn’t she offering plus sizes?
Here are some of my favorite items she is currently offering:
Maybe if enough of us speak up and let these designers know we want their designs in our sizes they will finally start listening. I want to know what you think about my favorite designers. Who is on the top of your list?
