A recent article by Claudia Connel prompted me to write a response. Claudia Connel, a journalist for the Daily Mail, took it upon herself to see how some of the top glamorous designer stores treat real women.
Marina Rinaldi for mother of the bride and special occasions
When a child announces up coming nuptials the excitement soon becomes somewhat of a nightmare when it comes to finding beautiful mother of the bride / special occasion wear in plus size.
When it comes to discussing plus size designers, only one truly springs to mind. Anna Scholz is probably the industries most recognised plus size designer with one of her specialties being the perfect plus size dress.
Elena Miro is a chic, Italian fashion house that has been catering for the plus size woman since 1985.
I recently did a review of the West Ends ‘plus shopping’ and mentioned then that Selfridges had gotten rid of all its plus size designers (there was at one time a good plus department in Selfridges) and grudgingly kept only Marina Rinaldi.
