New York Fashion Week
Our highlight at NYCFW was the launch of the current Lane Bryant campaign #PlusIsEqual! With the previous campaign #ImNoAngel, the American fashion retailer had already attracted attention and showed that body positivity and self-confidence are the most beautiful accessories for a woman - after her curves, of course ;-)
Ashlam Graham Lingerie Collection
The 28 year old plus size model Ashley Graham was part of the Lane Bryant #PlusIsEqual campaign again this time. She was already seen in front of the camera for #ImNoAngel and made her debut as a designer at New York Fashion Week. She herself presented her lingerie collection, a dream made of French lace in black and blue, which not only looks wonderful, but also shapes and supports.
Beth Ditto for Marc Jacobs
But the most spectacular appearance of New York Fashion Week was delivered by rock star Beth Ditto, who presented herself on the catwalk for Marc Jacobs in a long evening gown with an extra high slit in the legs. After already modeling for Jean Paul Gaultier and Chanel in Paris at the Fashion Week, the appearance in New York was by no means a surprise, but a successful statement! Keep rocking, Beth!
Plus Size Fashion Week UK / Fashion Week London
Nadia Aboulhosn x addition of ell
Nadia Aboulhosn was flown in to London especially for the UK Plus Size Fashion Week.
Another star of the curvy scene, blogger Nadia Aboulhosn was also in London on UKPFW to promote her new fall collection with Addition Elle. She modeled herself for the lookbook in her usual cool attitude. There are some nice pieces to discover, but overall the collection is not very fashion-forward and fell short of our expectations. Nevertheless, Nadia Aboulhosn is and remains one of the most inspiring curvy ladies!
Plus size model Hayley Hasselhoff
Of course, plus size model Hayley Hasselhoff, daughter of Baywatch veteran David Hasselhoff, was there again. The curvy It-Girl has been working as a curvy model since she was 14 and was seen during UKPFW for some labels, such as Boohoo Plus and on the catwalk, in a spectacular green sequin dress, among other things. But also off the catwalk, she caught the attention of Fashion Week visitors with her angel hair and rocky style. A cool woman!
Design Collective for Evans Summer 2015Plus Size Fashion Week UK Design Collective for EVANS
The highlight of UKPSFW 2014 was the show by the English retailer Evans, which presented its latest capsule collection. A number of high-ranking designers such as Clements Ribeiro and Gilles Deacon were selected for the collaboration, who have made it their task to create a trendy plus size collection with wearable, flattering cuts and at the same time clearly emphasize the design aspect. We think the project was an absolute success! The collection comes across as zeitgeist, high-quality and self-confident. One must-have after the next!
Flowing fabrics, feminine silhouettes and skilful color contrasts are the ingredients of this wonderful plus size summer collection.
Rhinestone applications and silver accessories combined with sporty elements round off the contemporary look.
The figure-hugging cuts and tailored styles also impress with their perfect fit, high-quality materials, modern prints, patterns and fabric processing.
