    Graceful as a Swan

    What attracted you most about collaborating with a plus-size, high-street brand?
    The possibility to do some pioneering work, and lending our design skills to a market/customer that has largely been neglected by high fashion.

    How is designing for full-figured bodies different than designing for the standard 0-12 (US) size run?
    Shapes become really important and proportions are quite different. Comfort and respect are essential and fashion ideas need to be adapted to that, they cannot be imposed at will.
