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
My name is Christi, I am know as PLATS on this here interwebs. I am 23 and I am the everything behind Platipuses DIY, and I do mean EVERYTHING. I’ve been selling my sewings for about 4 years now, and it’s my only source of income, so I love all of my customers more than anything! So thank you! I do specialize in larger sizes because curvy babes like unique and stylish clothing as much as the skinny ladies!
No matter how implausible it seems while looking out the window, Spring and Summer will be here before you know it. Be prepared with a bathing suit from ByRo! Designs.
ByRo! swimsuits have special features for the “full figured woman designed by a full figured woman.” These design features include power-netting, princess seams and a more shaped and contoured fit to provide more comfort for the plus-size body. ByRo! Swimsuits are fashion forward with a contemporary and trendy design for the marketplace. Her fashion line also includes swimsuit cover-ups, sarongs, active-wear, cat-suits, sexy dresses and a new line of belly dancewear.
MaxEquations is a labor of love created by myself, Eve in partnership with my husband, Gary. He provides the business knowledge while I design our clothing and communicate with our customers. I have a varied background in the arts, as does Gary, but no direct experience in designing clothing until now. Strangely enough, I spent thousands of hours of my childhood drawing fashion designs. Who knew?
After the collection is designed, I work hand in hand with Linda Synder, our in house seamstress and pattern maker, who helps make my ideas come to life.
The clothing is then hand painted by our artist, Brian Metz. Our painted images are based on a seasonal theme determined by myself and designed along with Brian who paints each piece to order.
