And there it is…. The collection from Beth Ditto
The collection from Beth Ditto, from size 14 to 28 US, 44-58 EU. It’s very 80s, which I love! A little vintage touch!! The jeans jacket!!!! OMG… LOVE IT! Not all items are favorites, but the black Lola dress, which also comes in white… is my number 1!! The Lola skirts as well in black and lips version. Great shapes… These are tailored very well. The other ‘shape less’items are not really my style. For me not flattering, specially the balloon on the end of the jumpsuit and dress.
I think it’s amazing, a singer having a plus size, designs a collection for women larger then size 42 EU. She knows, what is missing… well… she makes a statement, which I love! Every woman deserves to wear whatever she wants in her size!
DO you remember the Beth Ditto ♥ Jean Paul Gaultier shirt? I thought the collection would be more in this line, and style. I still love this… it’s now even on sale! What shall I do?
The prices are pretty high, she wants fashion for plus size women who want access to the same high quality fabrics and craftsmanship everyone else has.
“I wanted to make pieces to last years. Beyond trends, beyond chain stores. I wanted to create something all its own, something just for us, made with love and consideration. Made ethically in the USA as a small company with no corporate input. Uncompromising, unapologetic, humane, and timeless. Go-to pieces designed to last.” Beth Ditto
Beth Ditto about this collection:
“Like most girls over a size 14, I’m no stranger to getting creative with off-the-rack clothes. As a teen I combed thrift shops for cool pieces that could be cut, stretched, altered, or reimagined to fit my body. Sleeves cut off, stretch panels sewn in, babydoll dresses made into shirts and vice versa. Lots of early photos from my band Gossip include my homemade clothes!”
“Later I was lucky enough to be dressed by designers for the red carpet, but the hijinks continued: a tablecloth made into a dress at a Rolling Stone performance, a Westwood dress worn upside down. Stylists bringing nothing but sheets to drape me in, designers sending oversize pieces meant for thin people with armholes sized for a zero. Where are the fashionable clothes for fat girls that aren’t designer one-offs? Where are the subtle and chic wardrobe staples, where are the crazy statement pieces?”
“I am SO excited to use years of these experiences, passion for a good stretch, and advice from awesome designer friends to bring you this collection! Fashion for plus size women who deserve to love their bodies AND their clothes, who want access to the same high quality fabrics and craftsmanship everyone else has. Something beyond the uber-cheap, disposable fast-fashion that’s pushed on us.”
