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
Drama. Attitude. Shine.
Newcomer on the plus size fashion scene, Lavenader’s jungle is no newbie when it comes to technique and design. The designer behind Lavender’s Jungle, La Krisha S. Joseph-Baker, knew at an early age fashion was her passion. From wedding gowns, business wear, club wear, to special occasion, La Krisha has had her hand in custom design, thanks to the stern teachings by her Great Grandmother, a master seamstress.
On her technical skills in training: “If the seams of a garment didn’t line up, no matter how long you worked on it, my great grandmother would rip it apart. It teaches you to put your best work forward the first time.”
In early 2012, La Krisha formed Lavender’s Jungle, a full figured fashion line that caters to women size 16-22. To create this line, La Krisha only uses the best quality materials to create one of kind designs, taking into consideration the specific needs of your curves. La Krisha aims to bring out the inner confidence within you, when you put on one of her garments.
For Full Figured Fashion Week, there was a play with brocades, silks, finite detail in her bustier tops, and drama in her tulle lined dresses. Defintiely not one to bore and for the plus size woman who is not afraid of some drama.
