This is certainly worth a look ladies. Last night in Australia there was an editorial on one of the Current Affairs shows on plus size models and the face of Australian fashion and where they anticipate fashion, models and "real women" heading this year. The story takes a little while to get going, but it does eventually punch up towards the end. The amazing City Chic was featured, but in the story it also comes to light that some other labels in OZ have just upped their size range.
Charlie Brown doesn't look to have the greatest online store - but if you are in Australia, why not head in and see what the fuss is about... apparently the store now caters to a size 16... while the amazing (and expensive) Leona Edmiston boutique now offers some designs up to a size 24. That is fabulous!
Also - keeping in Australia, there is a great article on ninemsn from last week about Aussie plus size models and their increasing demand. I love that models like Abby Valdes (pictured above) are doing so well! AND I find it heartening that fashion culture is catching up.
Take a look at the Editorial from A Current Affair - as I mention it limps at first but feels like it packs quite a punch as plus size fashion hits it's stride toward the end.
As an aside City Chic has just released a whole heap of really lovely, feminine items for the Australian Summer, like the Top "Frill Front Stripe" (RRP $49.95 AUD) - so why not get online and support fashion from down under. City Chic is my favourite Aussie plus-size store, and certainly is of an excellent quality - why not check out their sale too!
