To say that I was geeked is an understatement. I think I tracked down Shellice like I was a groupie. I am.

    I actually thought that this was quite boring. It was nothing new or unexpected, with the exception of maybe the dress with the puffy sleeves. What frustrates me most is that it seems as though every time another plus size designer emerges it’s always with cheap polyester/jersey knit fabrics (with a few exceptions). Why can’t these designers/brands create pieces with a variety of fabrics? Or is it that they feel that it’s easier to fit a plus-sized woman into clothes that “give”?

      To each their own @5aef536755892b370f563fb0477095d0:disqus but in this particular situation, where or when have you seen leather in a suit ( a shorts suit at that?) yes the puff sleeve dress is my favorite…

      For this particular designer, this is her aesthetic… leathers and knits… and this is a different look from the manufacturer’s and mass retailers… I’d rather play in real leather all day long than in faux… but that is my preference. The thing that is beautiful about plus size fashion is that we now have options! :)

        That’s true…options are coming @MarieDenee:disqus, but I wish those options included more pieces that could be considered mid/high end.

        Also, this is not at all to insult this designers work. I do agree this is a step in the right direction. However, I just wish that when plus size designers and brands created their collections they would attempt to include fabrics that we don’t already get bombarded with. I would like to see a brand emerge that could easily be sold in Nordstrom, Macy’s, etc.

        I also appreciate you keeping us informed of what is new in plus size fashion. :-)
