10 Fashion Labels We'd Love To See Do a Plus-Size Line


Launch Slideshow


Well this is exciting: Mary Katrantzou, riding high on the success of her Topshop collaboration, has revealed to the Evening Standard that Net-a-Porter has approached her about offering her collage-print designs in larger sizes, which means plus-size beauties might soon be slipping on some bowl-shaped skirts of their own.

"I was looking at a size 14 woman wearing our dress and I thought, 'I can't believe we don't go bigger than that size!' because she looked tiny," Katrantou tells the paper, though she says that offering up to a size 18 or 20 would require "a lot more thought about the prints." 

"Sometimes designers are blamed for not going to a size 16, but it's not that: it's that there isn't demand [from buyers]. So I think if buyers were more brave to try it for a couple of seasons, they would sell more and designers would produce more."

In that case, consider this our official plea. While designers like Zac Posen and Michael Kors have branched out to the plus-size market, there's still plenty of room at the table.

And to save time, we've taken it upon us to whip up a list of Fashion Week favorites who seem particularly well-suited to accommodating fuller figures. Think big, folks!
