RACHEL ROY OFFERS NOW ALSO PLUS SIZE CLOTHES

RACHEL ROY OFFERS NOW ALSO PLUS SIZE CLOTHES

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. This way she can add more new consumers to her brand. The plus size collection will offer clothes from sizes 14 – 24. She choosed Candice Huffine as her model.

When asked about why she wants to offer plus size clothes now by Refinder29, Rachel answered this:

“My customers have actually been asking me for years for plus-size, which we like to call ‘curvy.’ I think [the term] is just more modern and doesn’t sound as old-school. We wanted to do it for a long time and now just made sense.

“It’s not that it’s any different [than the regular line], it’s just that we got the fit right. And as soon as I could pull together the correct team to do that, we did it. I believe an in-house team has to work with it, hands on it, try it on, and ask questions until everyone’s comfortable. I mean, we have the designs, that’s not a problem. It’s just getting the correct fit, so it’s what people want to wear.”

I told you already that this year will be even more amazing than the news of last year. And I must admit, that I see everyday some great new information to share with you. Now I am sure after all the stress she had with her ex-husband and former business partner, that this time it’s going to be a lasting success.

So never give up and always remember to love yourself and to love your body!

1. How did you became a plus model?

An agency in Montreal spotted me at the age of 16 years for the regular size category. But physically, I was unable to hold this shape and weight. So few years after, I applied for the Plus size division! I’m completely in love with this category!

2. Was this also what you always wanted to do? Did you study? what?

Since the age of 4, I knew deeply that I want to be a model. I always liked to be filmed and play the star in front the camera. For me this is the ideal time to let me go, fall into my magical world and share it with the world. 🙂

3. Why do you regard yourself as a plus size model?

I consider myself as being a plus size, because I have curves. I have a refined waist and predominant hips. I wear 14 and I train regularly to be FIT. Being plus size does not mean necessarily, say (Big), but voluptuous to me and comfortable in their own skin. Personnaly, it simply leads to be healthy, well in my body and God knows I eat as I please… lol

4. What are your wishes for 2014?

WOW, this is a very good question. I like that. 
Firstly, I want to develop myself. I am a woman who works a lot on me. I like to learn about myself. I love meeting new people who have full of motivation, inspirations, desires ,always in search of success to excel and become better. So, I wantto  travel, meet positive people, reinforce my relationships with my loyal contacts and being recognized of my good work. 🙂

5. What was the best thing that happend to you?

There are many good things that happening to me. The birth of my son was one of the greatest moments in my life. A tuning point was beginning. There was also the day i choosed to get involved in fashion completely and doing nothing else than FASHION!! A big jump when you are a single mom.

6. What was the worst thing that happend to you?

When my father was diagnosed with a Lungs Cancer in 1998 and thereafter he survived 3 recurrences. He’s alive and I am very proud of him.
