Draped dresses, some asymmetrical, emerged from the runway, most in hues of peach, lemon and blue. The collection than transitioned into sheath dresses, trousers, cardigans and blouses but this time with hints of lace.
Fashion icon and one of the top earning plus-size models, Emme, who is also the brand ambassador for OneStop Plus.com, told CBSnews.com,
“I think there is going to be a ripple effect from this fashion show to all of the fashion community. 62 million women are a size 12 and above, why hasn’t this been done before?’”
