Top 5 Plus Size Stories From November 2015
So, we started the month with the launching of a New brand in Plus Size Fashion: Rebelution by Rebel Wilson!
She launched her new plus size clothing brand with none other than Torrid, one of our fave plus Size Boutiques. We find that her styles are bold, edgy, exciting and youthful!! What do ya’ll think??
In an interview with Liz Black of Refinery29, when asked, “What made you decide to work with Torrid?”
Rebel Wilson answered:
“I really felt that Torrid was the coolest of the plus-size brands, which might not have been a hard title for them to get, because plus-size brands have notoriously been kind of like something your older aunt would wear to a wedding. Even still! Even though over 60% of the population in my home country [Australia] and in America is a larger size, there are not many designers or companies that are catering to plus-size [people] who are trying to be cool and on-trend, as well. So my collection is deliberately youthful — not that you have to be that young to wear it, but you have to have a youthful energy.”

Next story up, we have another Plus Size designer Ashley Nell Tipton: The First to win Project Runway!!
We are So Proud of and for HER!!
So, Here’s Another Historical Moment for us as American Plus Size Women. It seems Plus Size is making Fashion Industry strides in leaps and bounds these days , especially since Lane Bryant’s #PlusIsEqual Campaign Debut on Times Square in September. We are finally getting noticed as a relevant fashion class: What do ya say?? It’s about TIME!!
When we make up the majority of fashion buyers in the U.S (approximately 67%) , how could they keep ignoring us?? Makes no business sense at all!!
This is what Ashley had to say about her WIN>>>
“I couldn’t believe it. I had flashbacks of everything that I’ve had to go through in my life and all the struggles — I’m very, very excited and I’m just so proud.”

Our 3rd monthly story comes by way of Author Lauren Chan from Glamour Fashion: “Meet Model Iskra Lawrence, Plus-Size Fashion’s Newest It Girl Turned Fashion Editor” …
Model Iskra Lawrence, now signed with top agency JAG, has become one of the world’s most famous curvy models and in mid- November was named Managing Editor of Runway Riot…a fashion, style & beauty website for women of all sizes and dedicated to the under-served and mostly overlooked community of curvy women!
Iskra Lawrence is a champion of body diversity and has long been committed to changing the image of women to a more positive light in the media. When asked what motivates her in spite of criticism, Iskra replied,
“…Instead of waking up and worrying about your thigh gap, wake up and worry about what you’re going to achieve today. What can you do and how can you give back?”
