Happy Thursday all!
Last week I had the honor of attending the FIRST ever plus size collection to officially show at New York Fashion Week. Cabiria is the creation of Eden Miller who wanted to provide plus size women with well made fashionable clothing that accentuated our wonderful curves . Eden was selected to participate in the Fashion Law Institute’s 3rd annual runway show with five other designers. The fact that Cabiria is a plus size line was not a factor in their decision to invite her. Eden was invited because the Fashion Law Institute was impressed with her clothing and talent. I was very happy to hear this because often plus size fashion is included as a novelty or as an afterthought. People need to understand that plus size designers are just as talented and creative as mainstream designers. Cabiria showing at Fashion Week gave the plus size fashion industry a huge platform to show that we too can be chic and stylish!
In attendance were plus size bloggers such as Gorgeous in Grey and Little Lime Dress and industry leaders Plus Model Magazine and Madison Plus. I also had the pleasure of finally meeting Sheri from Shapely Chic Sheri and Sarah from Curvily. Both ladies were wonderfully dressed and so friendly. After our introductions, we carried on like old friends laughing and enjoying the show!
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get a full body shot of what I wore Friday (my floral peplum skirt was FABULOUS!) but Sheri was kind enough to get picture of some of my outfit. I have to give a big shout out to Corrinn of Beauty Box Style for putting me together for this event!
Although the entire Cabiria collection was fantastic, this bold mixed print skirt and blouse ensemble was my absolute FAVORITE! I can definitely see myself wearing this especially the wonderful print skirt. I plan on snatching this up ASAP once it becomes available!
What do you think about Cabiria showing at NYFW? Do you think it will have any impact on how plus size fashion is viewed? And lastly, what do you think of the collection?!
Have a wonderful day!
