For the past months, African-inspired garments and accessories have been raising their fashion status all over the world. The cuts, the patterns, and all the different colors from the continent give us a new artistic perspective – wait, scratch that. Since the patterns have been there since the beginning of time, let’s just say that it helps us rediscover our love for what has already been there. We take you on a virtual trip to the Africa we all know and love in the fashion world.
Dear Curves by plus model/designer Linda Idegwu brings out the best in African-inspired clothing. They take the diverse culture, colors, and prints and fashionably mix them in a bowl of style! After a few artistic stretches, voila! – We have the whole collection! MORE IMAGES →
StylishDressing.com was initially envisioned as a fashion imagery hub from where women of all shapes and sizes could derive inspiration. However, our team noticed that plus sized women were a hugely under represented group in the fashion industry. StylishDressing.com then repositioned itself as a ‘Curated Plus Size Fashion Inspiration’ blog. We believe that beauty does not come in any particular size or shape and believe that all designers should start to feature more plus size models. No, we are NOT against women of any size-we are only advocating a larger representation for plus size women in the fashion world.
We do not claim to be industry experts – those are the plus size magazines and plus fashion bloggers. We thank each one of them for the excellent job they are doing to bring plus size into mainstream fashion. We also thank all those gorgeous plus size models, hair and make-up artistes, photographers and stylists who were kind enough to grant us publishing rights.
But yes, we are experts at scouring the web and delivering the best images and insights on the latest trends in plus size fashion. StylishDressing.com has tie-ups with leading plus size designers, stylists, fashion photographers, models, bloggers and industry experts. This allows us to excel at what we do – inspiring you!
Our Mission: To deliver exceptional fashion inspirations focussed on enhancing the body image of plus size women.
Our Vision: A world where women are judged not by the size of the clothes they wear, but by the content of their charachter. A world where all plus size women have confidence in their bodies and their dressing.
Our Responsibility: 10% of StylishDressing’s profits go towards funding charities assisting less fortunate women.
