New York Fashion Week
Our NYCFW highlight was the launch of the current Lane Bryant campaign #PlusIsEqual! The American fashion retailer had already attracted attention with the previous campaign #ImNoAngel and showed that body positivity and self-confidence are the most beautiful accessories for a woman - according to her curves, of course ;-)
Ashlam Graham Lingerie Collection
The 28-year-old plus size model Ashley Graham was once again part of the Lane Bryant #PlusIsEqual campaign. She has already appeared in front of the camera for #ImNoAngel and now also made her debut as a designer at New York Fashion Week. She herself presented her lingerie collection, a dream of black and blue French lace that not only looks beautiful, but also shapes and supports.
Beth Ditto for Marc Jacobs
But the most spectacular appearance of New York Fashion Week came from rocker Beth Ditto, who presented herself on the catwalk for Marc Jacobs in a long evening gown with an extra high leg slit. Having already modeled for Jean Paul Gaultier and Chanel at Paris Fashion Week, her appearance in New York was by no means a surprise, but it was a successful statement! Keep rocking, Beth!
Plus Size Fashion Week UK / Fashion Week London
Nadia Aboulhosn x Addition Elle
Nadia Aboulhosn was flown in to London especially for UK Plus Size Fashion Week.
Another star of the curvy scene, blogger Nadia Aboulhosn was also in London on UKPFW to promote her new autumn collection with Addition Elle. She herself modeled for the look book with her usual cool attitude. There are some beautiful pieces to discover, but overall the collection is not very fashion-forward and has fallen 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 also part of the party. The curvy It-Girl has been working as a curvy model since she was 14 and was seen during the UKPFW for several labels such as Boohoo Plus and on the catwalk, including in a spectacular, green sequined dress. But even away from the catwalk, she attracted the attention of Fashion Week visitors with her angelic hair and rocking 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 English retailer Evans, who presented their latest capsule collection. A number of high-ranking designers such as Clements Ribeiro and Gilles Deacon were selected for the collaboration, who have set themselves the task of designing a trendy plus size collection with wearable, flattering cuts while at the same time clearly emphasizing the design aspect. We think the project was a complete success! The collection is contemporary, high-quality and self-confident. One must-have after the next!
Flowing fabrics, feminine silhouettes and skilful color contrasts are the ingredients of this beautiful plus size summer collection.
Rhinestone appliqués and silver accessories combined with sporty elements complete the contemporary look.
The figure-hugging cuts and tailored styles also impress with their perfect fit, high-quality materials, modern prints, patterns and fabric finishes.
