The Beau Ideal Larger Than Life Fashion Show

I recently had the pleasure of attending the Beau Ideal: Larger Than Life Fashion Show, here in Chicago, Illinois. The Beau Ideal Team did a fabulous job with bringing some of the best designers that Chicago has to offer. Today I’m focusing on the two Plus designers in the show. They both brought a different flair for those fashionista’s that like to look great and unique. The first is Kiyoko Linden by Shemeka Buckner.

Kiyoko Linden says “We are interested in NOT just making full-figured look confident, but feeling confident too!”
Shemeka uses vibrant colors and bold patterned fabrics in her designs. She wants her clients to feel unique while making a statement. Shemeka’s Kiyoko Linden line definitely made a huge statement on that runway. Check it out below!:

 The Second line is Deztinni by Ashanti-Nichole  says “We are the new world embrace your curves and know that GOD has made you a one of kind so be happy and enjoy your curves.” Ashanti uses jean materials as her primary esthetic and takes them to a whole new level that’s inspired by the 70’s. I felt like I couldn’t wait to get “groovy” with Ashanti’s pieces! In fact I wore one of her pieces to the fashion show (photo will be at the bottom of this post”). Take a look at her fabulous line!:

I had a wonderful time! Keep your eyes open for these designers ladies and I'm looking forward to bringing you more fashion!
