I finally officially present: my skirt! :) Well, you’ve already seen it, but today I want to show you my very own pictures of and for the first piece I’ve ever designed. ♥ It was such a special feeling to create something and even though there were a few guidelines regarding the fabrics, this is something that comes right out of my mind.

From tomorrow, you’ll be able to buy it online at → mable. I’ll update the link as soon as the collection is available! So don’t forget to drop by again! ;)
Update: GET THE SKIRT NOW HERE!

Of course, my first piece of clothing had to be a skirt, a flared one. And if I wasn’t that small, this would actually be a calf-length skirt. ;) But to be honest, I like this length on me! Taller women will experience the planned length, though. ;)

I wanted to use almost all of the fabrics of the collection, that’s why the skirt consists of a very special mix of emerald velvet, red patent leather and that beautiful transparent branches fabric. I like the extravagant mix and as you know me: it can never be special enough. :) The official “Witchcraft” look with the cut-out shirt (also from mable) and a large-brimmed hat is definitely a statement and not for every day (even though removing the hat already makes it less “witchy”), but I promise that you can easily wear this skirt for a night out and even “downdress” it a little. ;) There will be another look with it on the blog as soon as possible!

I also want to thank Katja again for trusting in me and making this first collaboration happen. I want to translate what I already answered to the question why I’ve done this with mable:

“Definitely because young designers are the future, not only in the “normal” fashion world but also and especially in the plus-size fashion world. We need fresh ideas and designers who dare to turn them into reality. From the beginning, mable has always been a brand that, for me, stands for pure creativity and that actually tries out new things. Also, it’s surely great to finally launch something that I can call my own. I’m more than excited to see the response to it, which at least was completely positive at the → Plus Size Fashion Days 2016 – the cheering when I presented my skirt on the runway is something I’ll never forget!”

I hope you enjoy today’s post with more pictures than usual and a video that’s a little longer – guess this is the best occasion for some overload of everything. ;)

From October 28 to 30, it was finally time for the Plus Size Fashion Days again. I’ve been super excited because this year, I was booked more often than last time, got the chance to present a piece designed by me and was part of the → “BODYLOVE” walk by Silvana Denker and Happy Size (which meant: getting almost naked again!).

Like last year, because of the catwalk training, fitting and rehearsals, unfortunately I had no time to visit the workshops and daytime events around the show, so I can’t tell you more about them, but I visited the opening party and on the last day, I was able to have a look at the marketplace. All in all, these were some super busy and positively stressful days, just like last year. The feelings are intense during the preparations, it’s a mixture of happiness (especially because of all those amazing people, the atmosphere is super friendly and helpful and I absolutely appreciate this! ♥) and nervousness, a bit of fear (“Will I trip on the catwalk?”) and loads of excitement. The adrenaline level seconds before the first walk is incredibly high and the feeling when you step out into the light, pose and see all the faces looking at you is amazing. Oh, the goosebumps! It’s simply great. And the best reward for everything you’ve done the days before the show.
