LYZ LUPO: #DROPTHEPLUS VS #KEEPTHEPLUS – THE ONLY THING THAT HAS TO BE CHANGED IS THE STIGMA ON THE LABEL ‘PLUS SIZE’!
Today is the 15th of March 2016, and it’s the sad moment where I had to realize that my beloved Plus Size Community is about to split into two different branches. I don’t know what to do anymore. This is my first personal post as […]
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.
The year 2015 was already a great year for curvy women. So many things happend that we never thought were possible a few years ago. But they happened and they changed important things regarding the perception of curvy women. FIRST LET’S SEE WHAT HAPPENED IN […]
