Tired of looking up and seeing your local billboards filled with pix of anorexic little waifs? Pictures that are supposed to represent all womankind? Yet when you look around, how often do you see the resident heroin-chic, supermodel giraffe stepping her way down the streets? Or better yet, how often do you see them in large groups? At work? Restaurants? The grocery store? Our point is that you don’t.
Women come in all shapes and sizes and most women in this day and age, and actually days past as well, don’t fit into body hugging spandex, or should we say – they definitely should not have to! So we went in search of clothes that fit all different sizes, and found some awesome labels that are made for women that know how to enjoy their cake and eat it too – without feeling guilty afterwards.
Kedem Sasoon‘s new Winter Collection was on display at this years Tel Aviv Fashion Week that we proudly attended. While the models that walked the runway were (mostly) non-cake-eaters, they were sporting fabulously awesome clothes that can be worn by a woman with a little extra cushion. Kedem Sasson‘s clothes use art and space together- a masterful work of architecture in which to house a body of any size.
Next we found Alembika– clothes characterized as “patches of color in a sea of black and gray”. In other words, life can be an unending stream of sameness, but with just a little bit of color thrown in- newness can begin. This is Alembika: clothes for the modern woman with luscious curves.
Maya Negri is another fabulous find with respect to the body and will give space to femininity. We’ve said it before here, “..airy silhouettes that give breathing space to the body with innovative proportions…”
And last but not least, Frau Blau, the magnificent duo that has created a fantastically creative line for women of any size. Their concept is that women should have fun with what they wear in a stylish and optimistic way.
Instead of being frustrated by clothes that just don’t fit quite right, don’t walk around feeling down. You have four new fresh and innovative lines for the plus sized women to choose from! So to all womankind, and not just the “skinny wenches”, we say- hit the pavement and don’t come back until your pocketbooks are empty and your closets are full, because what woman doesn’t deserve a whole new wardrobe?
