Anyone who’s anyone in plus size fashion knows about Nicolette Mason, Fat Girl in a Skinny World for Marie Claire US and the drop dead gorgeous blogger who is right on the pulse when it comes to curvy girl chic. She’s a bit of a heroine of mine, and even more so now she’s announced that she’s part of the Navabi Style Council.
To those of us who associate the Style Council with one of Paul Weller’s more forgettable musical projects, as of 2013 it’s a genius idea that brings together a group of the world’s most stylish plus-size fashionistas to give us mere mortals wise words of fashion advice via the Navabi website. Nicolette Mason posts about finding the perfect pair of jeans, while the gorgeous Fluvia Lucerda (who has graced the cover of Beautiful Magazine, too) talks about why curves are hot hot hot!
Meanwhile, did you know that we actually have a plus size fashion columnist in UK Cosmo? I didn’t wither, but you can check out Laura Puddy’s advice on the just-right jacket over there now (I still want the gorgeous lace biker jacket from Evans, just so you know) too.
Other fashion experts in the know are blogger Luciana Scmidt, plus size model Elisa D’Ospina and Edith Dohman (who talks about a subject close to many of our hearts: in-between sizing)
This is a really clever move from Navabi, a high-end designer store for plus size fashion fiends. I have to confess haven’t been high up on my fashion radar until I saw Nicolette’s blog yesterday morning, but I’m thinking the designs might be aspirational enough to keep me coming back for a good nose around (I absolutely adore most things Anna Scholz and I didn’t even know Roberto Cavalli did a plus size line.)
Have to say I think it’s a genius move here by Navabi, associating their website with some of the most popular fashion bloggers and models from around the world. I’ll definitely be bookmarking it…
