I’m a full-time vancouver plus size fashion designer, though I do seem to be making more and more things for smaller girls too lately ! Currently, my clothes (sizes 4-22) sell at Planet Claire in vancouver (212 Abbott st. in gastown) Each piece is handmade by me! <3 Jane Bonbon
Parasol Project was born out of my overwhelming ambition to produce one-of-a-kind apparel with recycled salvaged and vintage fabrics. By juxtaposing these Eco-friendly threads and my prairie/retro inspired designs, Parasol Project’s mission is to be a part of making this ‘green’ trend more of a vogue currency that never goes out of style!
I don’t know about everyone else, but I love neutral colours. I love greys, and ecrus and taupes and whites. I love it on Kids, and I love it on myself!
I was therefore THRILLED to stumble across Jibri.
Gorgeous designs, Plus Sizes and Lots of Neutrals (among other colours, of course!)
Check this out, The Ultimate Grace Dress. Isn’t it stunning? (and isn’t the model Gorgeous!)
What the designer of Jibri has to say about herself:
Jasmine Elder is the designer behind the label Jibri. Jasmine grew up in Atlanta and has lived in both NY and London as a student. She started the design company Jibri (named after her fashion mentor and teenage friend) in 2006.
JIBRI is dedicated to creating garments for the fashion-conscious, curvy woman. The label is a perfect combination of high fashion chic and urban street sleek in sizes 14-24. Jibri features a variation of punk innovation, classic construction, and vintage inspiration.
A JIBRI garment is created from unique fabrics and images. Each collection includes a variation of garments that focus on fabulous fit and individuality.
I’m struggling a little to find some stores which have gorgeous Plus Sized clothing that is modeled by Plus Sized Women! If you come across any, please leave a comment below!
Valentine Vixen: The time and love that goes into each item, shows. I only use high quality fabrics and trims, and I try to add that “little something”, in details like, lace edges or ribbon bows.
