In an interview with Refinary29 La’shaunae tells how she has always loved fashionable items but never really was able to afford them and even times she could afford, they were not made in her size. Here’s an excerpt from the interview
“I grew up never being able to afford the things I like and for [a brand I’ve] loved since I was a young teenager”
“I usually just shop mainly at thrift stores to find extraordinary plus size pieces because you rarely see cute things in my size. It’s like companies are fatphobic in a way when it comes to plus size clothing because most of the stuff they create is old lady themed in nature and covers everything. I don’t want to die in a 90-degree summer with only thick and oversized stuff and that’s all these companies make for us.”
