The revolution continues as American designer Rachel Marie Hurt who is well known for creating sexy, edgy, chic and fashionable pieces for the runway over the years but has never previously focused on the plus size aspect, debuted her first ever plus size collection at Denver Fashion Week. The event held in Colorado featuring emerging designers, local boutiques, national brands, hairstylists, makeup artists and models from around the world.
The fashion scene at DFW got an exciting glimpse of her new plus size collection which was themed around girl power with an expression of Parisian and feminine qualities. Rachel Hurst’s inspiration for her collection was the strong independent women who are comfortable with and embrace their feminine charm.
The pieces from the collection were a nice blend of playful sophistication which undoubtedly focused on women who embrace their curves. According to Rachel she says; “My goal is to show that you can translate fashion on the runway into plus size modeling, I don’t want to show that there is this huge difference or two different collections. I just want my brand to be size inclusive, and this Denver Fashion Week is giving me the platform to do so.”
Rachel’s overall plus collection were ready-to-wear with some of the pieces being sexy while some more conservative. Among the designs were also pieces which one could wear to work and not worry about changing clothes for happy hour. She played around with prints and patterns as well as silhouettes enhancing designs which offered a wider range of variety for plus size women.
Rachel says “I loved this collection and can’t wait to go even further with the next!” So keep your fingers crossed.
