Watching Project Runway’s Ashley Nell Tipton working on her clothing line with JCPenney is more than inspiring….IT IS AMAZING. I can only hope to be in her shoes one day, or at least have the opportunity to work with and collaborate on a clothing line with a brand that I love or look up to. I have been working on my plus size clothing line since last year. It can get very frustrating because I am doing everything myself, and I am working on a limited budget. If I could get a team together like this….you all wouldn’t be able to tell me anything! I also took a little break from working on things because I felt like I was doing too much. I was trying to do every idea that popped into my head, and I got overwhelmed. Then my fit model moved a few hours away. 🙁 Thank God I learned the lesson on to how to walk away from something and come back to it when I am more than ready.
Today’s currently craving designer/brand is Ashley Nell Tipton of Ashley Nell Tipton Design, a 21-year-old from San Diego, California. Sewing since she was 7-years-old, Ashley created her first fashion collection when she was a senior in high school.
The Ashley Nell Tipton collection is designed for women ages 20-30 with a bit of an edgy style, on her Facebook page she says:
“My collection is a full figured collection for the woman in her 20’s or 30’s who is a chic rocker! My collection is an artful combination of glamour and street fashion. I love color and I’m very inspired by curvy women and helping them feel good in their clothes. I want to offer plus size women the opportunity to wear fun colors and to avoid the pit-falls of only wearing black because many curvy girls think it is the only color that is slimming.”
Her designs come in sizes 1x (10-12) – 6x (30-32), which means that there is something for everyone! I love it! For more size information, check out her size chart.
