Fashion designer Nkem Olanrewaju’s Chic At Heart collection recognizes and accentuates the body shape of plus-size women. The modern styling and clean tailoring offer a fresh alternative to conventional offerings.
Plus Size Chic
Twenty years ago, models weighed on average eight percent less than the average American woman. Today they weigh 23 percent less. This pressure to conform to an unattainable goal is reinforced in plus size women because most retailers carry women’s sizes to size 14 when over half of all American women wear a larger size.
According to Olanrewaju, “Our slogan at Chic At Heart is to celebrate curves, providing plus-size women with great style and comfort that enhances their shape.” The collection includes tops, dresses, skirts, jackets and pants. All items are made in America and are hand-sewn to achieve the highest quality and best fit.
The Lily Dress: A classic silhouette with a modern twist. This dress has princess seams with a straight pencil skirt for a figure hugging fit that is parallel to none. Takes you from office to fun in a snap removable belt with fasteners for adjustable fit.
