It is always the perfect hour to shine, be a lady and show your fantastic self to the world. This weather and its colors definitely call for luxurious fashion, dramatic details and beautiful, natural fabrics. This is where designers can come in and enrich the fashion world with their craft, and since this is such a ladylike season, it’s definitely inviting for plus size designers. Today, we will talk about a few luxe plus size designers and when you see what we’re dealing with, you’ll know exactly why they’ve been hand-picked.
Why are they Luxe, exactly?
They’re exclusive. They’re fantastic. But that’s not all, as The Curvy Fashionista also pointed out, which is what Vogue Italia Editor Franca Sozzani defined:
“What is luxury? Quality and not price? Yes, maybe, but it’s not enough. Luxury involves a much wider concept.”
The high-quality and creative ready-to-wear is identified as a luxury symbol. And it is, of course, from a business and brand placement point of view, addressed to a high consumer range. Craftsmanship is luxury. A product is luxe when it is handmade, tailored for few. Luxury meaning exclusiveness. Are status symbols luxury? Yes, sometimes. Not necessarily…”
These designers inspire with their classic pieces and speak to women who value that what they wear is a mirror to how they feel, and that sophisticated air is what makes a woman radiant.
