Yesterday I was lucky enough to get an invitation to a fabulous fashion week event; the launch of Carmakoma's new sublabel Lab27. The clothes are of course beautiful, as you will see from the pics I wil be posting later this weekend.And the philosophy behind the brand is great. A line that is inclusive rather than exclusive. So stay tuned...
For the event I wore black, something I have done a lot lately. But this time I decided to spice it up with a splash of colour.

I know I have said this time and time again, but it can never be repeated too much: just because you are a plussize it does not mean that straight size labels are off limits too you. You just need to find the generous brands and the styles that you can make work. By Malene Birger is a Danish designer brand, it is really beautiful clothes, very feminine and flattering to curves. The larger sizes are quite genereous and I can (depending on the style) often fit into an XL (EU44/UK16/US18) which is their biggest size.
I still think that all brands should go higher, but until that happens (yeah right! ;-)) I will do my best to make it work anyway. I don't want to limit myself when it comes to fashion!
