While we can't get plus size collaborations at main stream giant stores like Target and H&M, every now and again we get our own little plus size collabo's from UK plus size retailers and they actually turn out pretty good. Remember Beth Ditto for Evans? Well, Evan's in keeping up the momentum. In the month of April, husband and wife design duo Clements Ribeiro will release a plus size collection at Evans. The collection promises to deliver quality fabrics, structured designs, flattering details, and on trend styles. It will read both sexy and feminine. Clements Ribeiro has never designed for plus size women and wanted to make this special collection to give plus size women what they've been missing in fashion.
We can expect to see vibrant colors, non traditional prints for plus sizes, and a a sex appeal that every woman possesses. According to UK's Daily Mail, the designers used a size 22 fit model and paid close attention to how the clothes looked on the larger parts of plus size women. They designed dresses with sleeves and made enough room in the bust area for a comfortable fit.
To get an idea of what their clothes will look like on plus size women you can refer back to Adele at the Barclaycard Mercury Prize 2011 at Grosvenor House. She wore one of their black lace dresses.
