Bethany Rutter, the blogger behind Arched Eyebrow, plus size influencer and model Aglaë Dreyer, as well as Isabell Decker the stylist and blogger of Dressing Outside the Box, have all launched plus size collections at navabi.
The influencer collections at navabi.co.uk show how each influencer has a unique style and take on fashion.
Aglaë describes the collection as feminine, relaxed and a little bit sexy.
She says: “It’s a collection made to make you feel confident, and make you stand out but in a subtle way. These are pieces that you can keep throughout the years. You can mix and match. It’s also designed in a way that you can show more skin, accentuating your curves instead of minimising them. As a plus model for years, I always felt a bit frustrated with the collections – I wanted pieces that would show more skin. I always felt the clothes I was wearing were meant to hide my shape although all I want to do it is show them … as I’m proud of my curves and so should you be.”
Meet the model – Aglaë Dreyer
A Marie Claire cover girl and the star of countless brand campaigns (including navabi’s) Aglaë Dreyer is not only a top plus-size model but one of the nicest people on the planet. When she’s not in front of the camera, she spends her time promoting self-confidence and encouraging young girls and women to love their bodies as part of the body positive movement #modelswithcurves. Add to that her natural ability to look effortlessly stylish 24/7 and you can see why we wanted to collaborate with her.
Talking about the motivation for creating her own collection, she told us, “I always thought we were lacking something fresh, feminine and sexy in plus size fashion. The idea that because we are curvy we should cover up is wrong. I really wanted to collaborate with navabi because they are a cool, young company that understands that fashion is for all and that we, as women, deserve better.”
Meet the influencer – Bethany Rutter
Say hello to Bethany Rutter, aka the fashion force behind blog Arched Eyebrow, freelance journalist, novelist (her first book comes out next year) and host of podcast Hello Friend.
And, if you think that’s impressive, those are her extracurricular activities, by day she’s navabi’s social media editor.
Her inspiration for the collection was “the things loitering in the back of my mind that I’ve always wanted to wear but haven’t been able to buy in my size”, and a Pinterest board chock full of Solange Knowles pictures because “she wears colour better than anyone else”.
