Yona New York Fall 2015 Collection
Hola Estrellitas!!
I want to introduce you guys to a new plus size fashion brand that
you may not be familiar with called Yona New York.
I was gifted this dress by the brand and after trying it out I
have to say that I really like the fit, the fabric is very pretty and is very
well made. Founded this year 2015 by Yona Love, Yona New York made its debut in
the plus size fashion scene this Fall and the company is based in Brooklyn, New York. They offer separates and dresses for women sizes 14w
to 24w.

Yona New York-Plus Size Dresses- Leopard Print Dresses

In a press release about the collection Yona Love, designer and
founder of the line had this to say: “I created this line because I felt there
was a need – for me and for all plus size women. Clothing made for full-figured
women is most often dark and ill-fitting since it is typically designed to
conform to the curves and shapes of more petite women. I couldn’t find clothes
in stores that allowed me to feel confident, classy, professional and
comfortable during my very busy day and life, so I designed my own line to meet
my needs and what I know are the needs of countless plus size women”. She also
said: “I’m so proud to introduce my new line to the public”.
I am super happy to be one of the first bloggers to introduce
this line to you guys, I have been following the company on social media for a
while now. It is great that we (plus size women) now have more and more options,
when it comes to clothing.
One of the things that I like the most about the brand is that
is all made here in the USA (in Brooklyn, NY to be exact). The Yona New York debut collection features
figure flattering separates: a fun, flirty cinched waist flair dress in animal
print (which I am wearing in the pictures), a pencil skirt in three rich colors, a maxi skirt
with fabulous pockets and front draping design for a slimming effect, and an
asymmetrical wrap shawl created in a burlap-textured fabric in two color
palettes that can be worn belted or unbelted for a high-fashion look.

What do you guys think of my look? Leave your comments below.

    You look beautiful. The way your hair and skin tone are picked up by the colors of the dress make it look like it was custom designed for you. Thanks for sharing.
