I am always happy to share the latest news from the plus size world and today’s post is especially close to my heart as it is from Italy: the country where plus size hardly exists. However the biggest and most traditional retailer chain, OVS launched the Curvyglam collection which is dedicated to us, curvy women.
The collection was made in cooperation with two famous Italian fashion journalists: Daniela Fedi and Lucia Serlenga and will be available online from 10 Feb and in the selected stores from 14 Feb. The sizes disappeared from the labels and in a very creative way they used 3 size indicators: Smart (Italian 46/48 – UK 14), Magic (Italian 50/52, UK 16/18) and Lovely (Italian 54-56, UK 20). You can find elegant but streetwear pieces as well and the most dominant colour is my favourite: all monochrome in black and white! On the day of the online launch (10 Feb) at 2pm they also organize a really cool and interactive shopping experience: a Google hangout is dedicated for the new collection with a fashion show to present the new designs.
Here are some pictures from the Milan launch event – let me thank again the invitation to Marge (La diva delle curve blog) and I will always remember this event since my very first Italian TV interview was done there too (you can check it here at 01:18:16)
Since we had a lovely sunny day yesterday, we took the occasion to take some outfit pictures where I wear the kinitted vest from the Curvyglam collection – thank you for the lovely gift!
