The Ashley Graham x Marina Rinaldi Capsule Collection Will Be Revealed During Milan Fashion Week
Hola Estrellitas! We have very exciting plus size fashion news for all of you today. Supermodel, designer, body activist and author Ashley Graham is collaborating with Italian designer Marina Rinaldi.
The Ashley Graham x Marina Rinaldi capsule collection for spring 2018 will be unveiled in Milan in 2 days, on Sept. 22, during Milan Fashion Week but it won’t be available until January. The fashion show is going to held at the newly restored 19th-century Teatro Gerolamo and it is called “Let’s Denim”.
One of the fabrics used on the collection is a jersey fabric that looks like denim. Lynne Webber, managing director of Marina Rinaldi said about the fabric: “This allows for extra comfort”. She also added: “It’s very difficult for plus-size customers to find the right fit with denim and we wanted to use comfortable fabrics that have a super recovery quality and dress all silhouettes.”
According to WWD, “The capsule collection starts at $180 dollars. It includes a practical lineup of shirts, dresses and body-hugging pants as well as strapless jumpsuits and motorcycle jackets, with metallic details with Graham’s signature”.
Ashley has been the face of Marina Rinaldi for a few years now and the collaboration between the two seem very organic. From the teaser that we saw on Instagram, Ashley made sure that no details were overlooked and even the buttons had her name on it.
We can’t wait to show you guys all the looks from the collection. Stay tuned to our blog and Instagram account @estrellafashionreport for more details once the collection drops.
