Plus Size Fall Fashion, A Look Behind the Scenes

Zahir Babvani, VP of Design, OneStopPlusZahir Babvani, Vice President of Design at OneStopPlus, reveals how the fashion collections are born, in the short interview below.

Q: You are actually making recommendation for Fall 2009 right now. How do you forecast so far in advance?
A: Well, fashion actually begins with Color & Fabric, which gets created 1 to 2 years in advance. So, I work with European color forecast services that set the trends for the upcoming seasons. I also attend fabric shows here in New York and in Paris which give us the direction that fabric will be going. Our design team adapts this information for each brand, focusing on their individual customers.

Q: But what about styles? How is that done?
A: We focus on the major trends in fashion that evolve from season to season. For example, the Global trend has been around for a few seasons now, each season has a new place of inspiration. We see it continue going forward, this time with a more Russian influence. With trends, it’s most important to stay true to the customer and not force a trend that isn’t right for her.

Q: How about plus-size fashion? Do you feel it keeps up with the trends?
A: One of our strongest efforts is to make sure we offer our customers the latest trends. We feel that being plus-size is not a restriction to being on trend. It’s not about size, but about attitude. Having a positive attitude is all you need to look good, and we design our collections with this mindset of not limiting our customer.

Chubby Girl Records Launched

Joanne Brokaw noted in her blog post last Friday, that a brand new and very unique new label within the Gospel music industry was just launched, which is targeted exclusively to plus size women.

Sherrie Keys, a Gospel singer, has launched Chubby Girl Records, a label which celebrates and embraces gifted Gospel recording artists who just happen to be ‘pleasantly plump’. Founder Keys believes that gospel music marketing offers a compelling and unique opportunity to positively influence the way plus size women view their own bodies.

Besides the new label launch, Chubby Girl Records is also designing a clothing line targeing also the plus size market.

It will be very interesting to watch how this new label develops, and I cannot wait to have a look at the label’s first fashion collection as well. I’ll definitely keep you ladies updated when more news is out.

Why Pierce Brosnan Rocks

Keely Shaye Smith and Pierce Brosnan

In a recent paparazzi coverage of Pierce Brosnan’s vacation in Hawaii with wife Keely Shaye-Smith, a lot of talk was made about Keely’s full figured body. It was no surprise at all that blogs and new articles simply said Keely had gone far beyond letting herself go, and should do something about her weight.

However it is just wonderful to hear that Keely is very happy and comfortable with her curves. And she doesn’t just thing so, she made this statement:

“I never shy away from colour or my curves. I like to play up my neckline and shoulders. If a jacket is pulling in the bust, I might just move the button an inch. But I never hide in baggy clothing.”

Furthermore, I think Pierce totally rocks, by having also stated that he thinks his curvy wife is stunning, and that he loved his wife’s curves! Way to go Pierce. It it so refreshing to see such a high profile actor embrace his wife’s natural beauty and not succumb to the stereotypical size 0 mania. Let’s hopes this serves as some inspiration to other men, who think they need a skinny thin woman besides them to be called a man.

Pierce, you totally rock!
