Two days ago we got an email from a person complaining that we promote obesity by sharing an image of Ashley Graham and accused her of copying from other models. Plus, the person went on to say that it’s a no-go to copy other people’s […]
The last thing I heard about Rachel Roy was that her fashion label had some trouble. But today’s news, that she will also offer a plus size collection in 2016, is great news to me. This is such a great decision of her to make. […]
River Island is a UK fashion brand. With over 60 years of fashion retailing experience, River Island is one of the most well-known and loved brands on the High Street and it has over 350 stores across the UK, Ireland and internationally throughout Asia, the Middle East and Europe, as well as six dedicated online sites operating in four currencies. But the clothes they offer for women only go until size 16.
Now River Island decided to increase their range and created their own plus size collection in sizes 18 – 24. We only saw one sketch so far, therefore we are very excited to see the whole collection. What we can say so far is that their choosen plus model is none other than Candice Huffine:
“We’re excited about giving great fashion to more women, we feel this is the right time for the brand to expand our size range offering,” River Island marketing director Josie Roscop told us this morning. “Ultimately, it’s about fashion and being inclusive.”~ Vogue
Candice Huffine is a internationally known and very successful plus model from the US. She was already featured in the Vogue Italy. She was part of the much anticipated #ImNoAngel campaign by Lane Bryant and she is one of the best paid models in the industry.
I am happy to see how more and more straight size brands decide to also go plus size. Although the River Island dress above looks pretty much like my own dress from Asos, it is still a good think to know that I can also shop at RI Plus in the future.
Have a nice day and always remember to love yourself and to love your body.
This year (2015) has been an amazing year for the full figured women. Incredible campaigns promoting body acceptance (#BeachBodyNotSorry, #IAmNoAngel, #BeautyBeyondSize), beautiful shoots by Designers in exotic locations and so much more. We are getting to the point that it is about being comfortable in your own skin, and […]
