Rachel Roy launched her new plus size line, RACHEL Rachel Roy Curvy, at Macy’s and I lost it. While this line doesn’t feature each and every piece from her straight size collection, it does feature a good bit of them. We have been asking major fashion designers for years to make a line for us that has the same if not similar items as the main line, and she did it.
Roy realized that plus size women are stylish and want the same things as their smaller counterparts. For some reason this is so very important, yet so very hard for designers to acknowledge. I really hope this line does well, so others can take note and create something similar. I also hope Macy’s doesn’t treat this like a one off and sabotage it. Stores love putting plus size clothes in the back of the store and in the dirtiest corner so that nobody can find it or want it once they do find it.
