Q: What inspired you to design for plus-size women?
A: I started my career in regular size fashion, quickly realizing the limited choice plus-size women had at the time. So I decided to adapt my collections past size 14, which quickly took off. In 1983, I was one of the first French designers to create a plus-size line.
Q: What’s the main difference between the plus-size fashion of Europe and that of North America?
A: Plus-size European women do not want to dress differently than regular size women- they look for styles inspired by European designers.
Q: What type of woman do you envision wearing your designs?
A: Active women looking for figure-flattering, refined, and comfortable styles.
Q:What are some of your favorite trends for Summer 2012?
A: Multicolored, ethnic inspiration, deep stream, and graphic prints. Some 70’s Brigitte Bardot-inspired check fabric in black and white. Asymmetrical shape tops and bias-cut, chiffon dresses.
