Are you tired of designers that make drab, unflattering clothes for plus-size women? As if by virtue of being full-figured, women lose all sense of style and have to settle for whatever dull clothes come in their sizes? Beth Ditto and I are too.
The flamboyant star has rocked the plus-size clothing industry with a haute collection for UK store Evans. One of the first celebrity/mass retailer collaborations for full-figured shoppers, Beth Ditto’s collection delivers her signature glam rock style to women sizes 14-32 for moderate prices. The punk rock/80’s-inspired designs range from printed high-waisted leggings to bright sequined dresses to cropped leather jackets replete with zippers and studs (see Glamazon faves below). American shoppers can purchase the clothing on the web—www.evans.co.uk—and have it shipped to the U.S. What do you think of the collection? What’s your fave Beth Ditto at Evans look? Why aren’t more celebs/designers tapping into the plus-size market?
