New York Fashion Week is a magical yet chaotic cultural phenomenon where the fashion industry comes together while creating impactful moments in time. Dreams can genuinely come true overnight with a well-executed, attention-grabbing visual presentation that takes teamwork to build. With that being said, Curve and Plus Size models alike were showcased at this year’s
Girl. Ashley Graham is on fire… seriously. You’d have to have been living under a rock to not know who Ashley Graham is! After her success of being the first plus size model to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated, she’s become a household name! From her swim collections with Swimsuitsforall to her Addition Elle lingerie collections, we’ve seen and fell in love with her design eye! And when you pair Ashley Graham with one of the leading plus size luxury designers, from the Max Mara family, Marina Rinaldi, (who is no stranger to The Curvy Fashionista) magic is bound to happen!
Ashley Graham is certainly one of the hottest tickets in fashionista town — not just in the plus size realm, but beyond! She recently blew everyone’s minds when she posted an announcement on her Instagram page about her newest venture:
The Ashley Graham x Marina Rinaldi Denim Collection!
Thanks to a tip from Estrella Fashion Report, we had to check it out for ourselves! We found all the details about this Ashley Graham x Marina Rinaldi collaboration!
The supermodel, designer, and author is teaming up with Italian luxury plus size designer, Marina Rinaldi, to create a capsule Spring 2018 collection! And get this! The line will debut on September 22 during Milan Fashion Week, in their show entitled, “Let’s Denim,” and the collection will be available for purchase in January 2018!
The Marina Rinaldi team also expressed her excitement via their Instagram page:
Can we talk about this jumpsuit? I need this. STAT.
The pair has worked together before — as Ashley has been the face of Marina’s designs for years; so this collection collaboration is a match made in fashion heaven!
What To Expect from this Collab
Since denim is the theme of the show, it looks like Ashley Graham X Marina Rinaldi are focusing on comfort with style.
“[The jersey fabric] allows for extra comfort,” said Lynne Webber, managing director of Marina Rinaldi. “It’s very difficult for plus-size customers to find the right fit with denim and we wanted to use comfortable fabrics that have a super recovery quality and dress all silhouettes.”
“The capsule collection starts at $180 dollars. It includes a practical lineup of shirts, dresses and body-hugging pants as well as strapless jumpsuits and motorcycle jackets, with metallic details with Graham’s signature,” via scoop from WWD.
So, you have until January to get your coins together!

This is so exciting! I’m looking forward to seeing the pieces! Ashley knows how to work her curves, so I’m sure she and the Marina Rinaldi team have worked hard to make sure other curvies’ best assets are on display in a comfy way!
So if you are looking for elevated plus size fashion, then you have to check out this collaboration!
