Did you Know?

THAT ALL THOSE INTIMATE FASHION SHOW AND BEHIND THE SCENE SHOTS FOR VOGUE ARE THE WORK OF A PLUS SIZE WOMAN WHO WOULD NEVER MAKE THE PAGES OF THE MAGAZINE THAT RELIES ON HER WORK?

Yep. Her name is Saskia Lawaks, referred to as the Eye of Vogue, and her success is grounded in the strength of her personal and often long standing relationships with fashion world movers and shakers.  And Saskia is curvy, sassy and chic. Her energy is boundless, a 20 hour day being a normal work day. She pops in and out of every mainstream designer presentation before, after and behind the scenes.

THAT CANDICE BERGEN has as her motto “Eat desert first.” My kind of woman.

THAT YVES ST. LAURENT said “What’s important in a dress is the woman wearing it.” That’s why at ibbi collection we have focused on your curvy shape and let our dress flow over your curves instead of fight them.

THAT LIZZO, BIG GRRRL SMALL WORLD
, a Minneapolis rapper with rapid fire swagger, says “My afro hair, fat, muscle, bone and melanin are not a punch line” (from My Skin), a big statement in a world where diversity and body empowerment are still huge issues.

THAT ROXANE GAY, well known cultural critic, is about to revolutionize how you feel about body image in HUNGER: A MEMOIR OF (MY) BODY (publishing in June). She says “I started this book fat and I’m finishing it fat…. This isn’t a book about successful weight loss. It’s about trying to change my relationship with food.” A lesson we all have to learn. Eat right and you will feel right.

THAT SERENA WILLIAMS, who just took the Australian Open for the umpteenth time, says “You have to learn to accept who you are and love who you are. I’m really happy with my body.” What a wonderfully bold, beautiful and irresistible woman showing us all success comes from dedication not from how you look.

THAT ASHLEY GRAHAM, size 16 model, believes she is destined for Hollywood because “…my body is so sexy that I will be playing a very sexy character … I will represent for all the sexy, curvalicious women out there.” And that she believes, “Perfection doesn’t exist. be happy with the body and the skin that you’re in.” Bold, beautiful and irresistible for her take on reality and belief you can do and be anything you want if you are comfortable in your own skin. Your size is not the focus, your accomplishment is.

THAT THE IBBI WOMAN exudes the self-assurance of a woman in control, empowered by her belief she is the best she can be and a big part of her confidence resides in how she presents herself. We believe in fashion without tugging, pulling, pinning or praying, just good fit so you look as bold, beautiful and irresistible as you are.
