High fashion and couture designer Isabel Toledo collaboration
with plus size retailer Lane Bryant has been a huge success. We caught up with
Isabel Toledo at the Lane Bryant store located at the Kendall Villages in Miami, Florida were
she was showcasing a preview of her new Fall collection. She gave us an exclusive interview, check it out:
has the Lane Bryant collaboration experience has been for you?
IT: It
has been a dream come true, it is beautiful to have a different audience.
Fashion is for everyone, we all love fashion. There are clothes for everybody
to wear but is there fashion?.  That’s what
I wanted to bring to the Lane Bryant customer.
Your collection for Lane Bryant has received great reviews, would you
considered doing more plus size collaborations?
IT: As
long as Lane Bryant will have me, I love to do it. I am happy that the
collection has been well received, I feel like I make women feel beautiful,
that’s important for them in life and I love the opportunity to do it. Lane Bryant
and I work well together; it has been a great partnership.
Tell us about your inspiration for the Fall collection that we are seeing
would say its Toledo lines for the Lane Bryant woman. It’s inspired by architecture,
engineering, and the fabrics are beautiful from classic tweed, to metallics and
detail patterns. It’s important for me that you guys wear my clothes
next for Isabel Toledo; tell us about your future projects?
have something HUGE coming up that I can’t say anything about yet but next I
will be showing my Isabel Toledo collection at Argentina Fashion Week.
always like to end our interviews by asking for a favorite quote or words of wisdom,
what’s yours?
IT-My words of wisdom would be: Caring, if you care
in your day to day you are connected. Everything I do, I do it because I care
and I love.
