Last week, we spoke with 11 Honoré about their sizing options and the accessibility in plus size fashion, especially for high end options. Well, one of the highlights of the conversation was how they are constantly pushing mainstream designers to include plus size options. And the latest arrival? DVF in plus sizes, as in Diane Von Furstenberg doing plus size fashion! With the addition of DVF, 11 Honoré’s rapidly expanding list of luxury designers has now reached over 65 brands!

This is exciting AF. In my past retail life, working on the contemporary floor, I have dreamed of the day for DVF to extend into plus sizes… the silhouettes are classic, especially the CLASSIC wrap dress. And for their launch, they bring the Julian Two Classic Wrap Dress!
This is Exciting, DVF at 11 Honoré!
Exclusively at 11 Honoré, the DVF collection gives us plus size women the opportunity to delight in the sophistication that DVF is known for. DVF’s mood is known for “balancing femininity with empowerment, sexy with strong.”
The collection launches with three dresses, the Julian Two Wrap Dress up through a size 24 (hopefully this will change). They did NOT skimp on the details that make DVF special. Pulling from DVF’s fabric archives, the wrap dress is a wrinkle-resistant, stretch silk jersey, with three-quarter length sleeves for year-round wearability. We get the bold color palettes, playful prints and the classic silhouettes that DVF is known for at 11 Honoré.

Are you excited about this news? What else from the DVF collection would you like to see in plus sizes? As I peruse the DVF site, I see quite a few looks that could easily translate to plus sizes. I look forward to seeing the collection grow, giving us some of the same lifestyle options as the brand has!

I’m thrilled – wraps are a staple for me, and finding ones that drape well and are high quality fabric is challenging.
That said, not gonna lie… she should’ve been literally the first person to have offered extended sizes, a decade ago. She makes the single most universally flattering dress on women’s bodies; and there is no hardware or unusual cuts or embellishment – it’s literally draping and sewing. So it really bugs me she took this long, and I want to ask her why. Why if you’re so all-about-female-empowerment, it took you till 2019 to do this.
Truth is, my pleasure at increasingly having these fashion choices is tempered by the knowledge that designers are so insecure they have to literally have their business managers make a business case to prove how much revenue they’re missing to finally make them give in. Because if it was just a matter of awareness that the market exists, they would’ve done it a decade or more ago when social media proved it.
So I am excited about all designers making this move – but I’m not grateful, because there’s never been any reason NOT to offer extended sizes, other than insecurity, cliquishness, and vanity on the part of the fashion industry.
