So far I have received a great response from those within the industry, including Phoenix Plusrebranding to Envy by Phoenix and losing the plus size labeling. My work has also encouraged a designer overseas, the phenomenal Manuel Tiscarino, to open his sizing to be inclusive of curves. (His designs are now available within my boutique, another revolutionary move I’m making to give my curvy girls access to couture).
So, I look to demonstrate, from my own successful business, with the response from my customers and the support from some influential people in the fashion and bridal industries; Felicity Hayward, Caryn Franklin, Manuel Tiscarino, Shanelle Armstrong Fowler, and Hannah Almassi (to name just a few) that inclusion makes good business sense, and we need to try and pick up the pace in the bridal industry to keep up with the changes we see daily in fashion.
