This will be a word light post and you’ll thank me for it once you see the incredible collections I’m about to show you! Last night, Evans had their ‘Cut For Evans’ launch and it was a celebration of two ridiculously talented young women: Alice Farrow and Rebecca Partington. Evans sought to collaborate with our future designers and with the mountain of entries they no doubt received, the design and buying teams chose university students, Alice and Rebecca to create something wonderful for the plus size community to embrace.
And embrace it we have! The first thing that struck me was the array of colours and prints. These are not designs you usually see for plus size women and I’m thrilled we now have proof that bright colours and bold prints are not something designers should be afraid of when designing for plus size. All my lovely fellow bloggers tried pieces and mixed and matched pieces together, and all looked out of this world! Both collections are just perfect for the coming months of spring/summer, and both collections are unashamedly attention grabbing – which is exactly how clothing of this nature should be.
Alice and Rebecca have done an amazing job and I hope this is further encouragement for other brands and designers to be brave, listen to consumers and allow us to indulge in the Bold and the Beautiful (do you guys remember that show? An appallingly good but bad American TV show). But enough of me, I’ll let the pictures do the talking...
Alice Farrow – Silky jersey-like material with bright colours and graffiti inspired prints. The collection includes a jumpsuit, shift dress, tapered trousers, jersey shirt, sleeveless chiffon shirt, and a tube skirt:
The ever stunning Georgina, showing exactly how you can mix and match the prints <3
Rebecca Partington – Knitwear collection with bright colours and bold illusion prints. The collection includes a long line tunic, leggings, bolero, and a knitted top and skirt:
And the two gorgeous ladies the night was all about! <3
I’d like to thank Evans for the invite for lasts nights launch, and a huge thank you to Alice and Rebecca, and their ‘breath of fresh air’ vision. You can shop the entire collection now!
‘til next time.
Love and hugs,
