Today’s best of 2010 goes to the much needed plus size designers. 2010 brought out some of the best designs from our favorite plus size designers  like Monif C., Igigi, Anna Scholz, and Jibri. They gave sexy, cool, sophisticated, and edgy fashions to satisfy the ferocious appetites of plus size fashionista’s who have been wanting the same contemporary designs that we see from straight size designers. Consistently these designers brought great collections from Spring, Fall, and right into holiday. There was no limit to their creativity. Their designs showed that they had the plus size woman’s best interest at hand and their collections never disappointed.

In my opinion, every one of these designers gets my vote. However, SC wants to know which plus size designer knocked your fashion socks off in 2010.

The nominees for best plus size designer of the year are:

Monif C. for Monif C.

Anna Scholz for Anna Scholz
Jasmine Elder for Jibri

Yuliya Raquel for Igigi




Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Checkout SC’s new video checking out the new Monif C. boutique. From Monif C. intern to brand manager, Brandon gives SC an in depth look at the new Monif C. boutique (located at 325 W. 38th Street (between 8/9th Avenues) in Suite 207) and shares some insight on the fabulous holiday collection, what’s their number one seller, and a perfect partnership with LaDan’s Closet.

I also took a few snapshots of the boutique. Check it out:

When I got word that Monif C. had moved to a new boutique, I just had to be there to check it out.
The boutique had me at hello as soon as I saw the rich pink colored walls. I loved the the black and white leopard print back wall and the striped dressing room curtains. There was a pink shaggy carpet placed in the middle of the store that just made you want to roll around on it. A beautiful black chandelier served as the centerpiece of the room. Mannequins were decked out in gorgeous red dresses from the fall collection and there was a super cute assortment of sandals, boots and jewelry showcased throughout the store.

The boutique felt warm, inviting, and made you ready to shop. Monif C. has had tremendous success and she adorned her walls with framed magazine features from Essence and Glamour.

Although the space is small, Monif did a great job of decorating the space. Everything was so neat and orderly. If you’re in NYC or plan on coming to NYC make sure you check out the Monif C. boutique. You’ll be in pink heaven.

Be sure to check back this week for my one on one interview with Monif C. herself.

Special thanks to:
 Monif C. and Brandon for letting me come with my big tripod and little camera.
