First Look: Isabel & Ruben Toledo For Lane Bryant


Big news in the curvy world! Lane Bryant, the country’s best known plus size retailer is teaming up with husband and wife team – Isabel and Ruben Toledo for the first ever designer collaboration with the brand! It’s sad to say, but most high-end fashion designers refuse to acknowledge the plus-size community, regardless that the average size of American women is a size 14. It’s so frustrating! But all that is about to change starting this Holiday season with a t-shirt and tote bag designed by the duo as a small preview to their full collection, which will debut in the spring.

Isabel Toledo happens to be one of the First Lady Michelle Obama’s favorite designers, and even wore her design to the 2009 inauguration. I can’t wait to see what comes out this partnership, but I have a feeling it’s gonna be fab! Lane Bryant was kind of enough to send me the t-shirt and tote in advance and you can definitely see the Toledo’s art world influence in the design. Now I'm curious to see the full collection!

What do you think - should high-end designers collaborate more with the plus-size industry? Share your thoughts!
