I know I am late to the party-preparing for finals y’all, but I had to post this. The Design Collective for Evans S/S15 fashion show was the first time a plus size retailer had shown at London Fashion Week, and that is big news. I mean they literally made history. A lot of the clothes in this collection are super cute. I love the colors, the laser cut skirts, the fabrics that went from really sheer to really solid. I can’t wait to see how they translate this to their website next season.
Here is a little more info for you:

The new Clements Ribeiro Swan SS13 Holiday Collection for Evans is here and looks just as cute as can be. Evans chose several plus size bloggers to model the new collection for a short fashion film that portrays all the fun that fills the collection. The bloggers are Georgina Horne, Bethany Rutter, Callie Thorpe, Marie Denee, and Nicolette Mason.
Here is what Evans has to say about the Clements Ribeiro Swan SS13 Holiday collection:
There is a definitive nod to surrealism and the entire collection is inspired by Suzanne Clements and Inacio Ribeiro’s travels – namely a visit to the Prada and Schiappareli exhibition in trendy New York. Fun graphic prints are featured on sweatshirts and jersey dresses, whilst standout pieces include quirky animal motifs – such as a lobster on a sweatshirt dress or a zebra head on a striped jersey tunic – through to retro kitsch lip print shirt dresses and a heart painted heart swimsuit.
I personally love the graphic prints in the collection. I think the stripes, lobster, and kisses look great. I know some people aren’t too fond of loud prints and splashy colors, so if you are that person…this collection isn’t for you. If you are adventurous, try this line today before it sells out!
Fashion Week is still going strong in London. Milan Fashion Week will start in a few days. Until then, let me tell you about a few shows that I think really caught my eye. The Eley Kishimoto show seemed really interesting. A lot of the clothes were brightly colored and had lots of patterns. It was a very fun looking collection. Clements Ribeiro’s collection looked to be more toned down than the Kishimoto show at first glance. Then you notice the embellished fabrics, paisley prints, marbleized blouses, and decorated boots. I really loved the sweaters that were far from plain. Roksanda Ilincic’s collection was really beautiful. It was full of wool, fur, satin, and draping. I love all of those things, but it takes skill to be able to pull it together. The clothes in this collection reminded me of the movie Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day. At first I thought I would not like the Erdem collection, because everyone was raving about it on Twitter, but I was surprised. It was really good. The colors were swirled around into this pattern that reminded me of a butterfly or some tropical fish. There were also long and short dresses. That shows a good bit of variety.
