Dominican Fashion Designer Cenia Paredes Launches Jeans Collection ‘Cenia Convi Jeans’ On HSN
Hola Estrellitas! I am super excited to share with you guys that Dominican Fashion Designer and friend Cenia Paredes is debuting her new jeans collections the “Cenia Convi Jeans” LIVE on HSN tomorrow at 4:00 pm.
Cenia owns the ready-to-wear fashion brand Cenia New York and she graduated Summa Cum Laude from the prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in 2004. She worked in New York’s competitive Fashion District for various renowned brands before launching her own brand in 2009.
According to Cenia, the Convi Jean is a solution-based denim line designed to adjust to all body types. To achieve this, Paredes placed convertible zippered darts at the back of the waist, allowing women to zip or tighten the waistband for a perfect fit, or wear them open to convert to the standard market waist size.
The Convi Jean, which features a high waist cut, also eliminates traditional belt loops and front pocket bags. These combined design elements create a smoothing effect for the abdomen and reduce the possibility of the dreaded denim “love handles.”
Paredes created the line out of her own challenges as a petite, curvy woman who often had to tailor her jeans at the waist so they would fit properly. Realizing that this was a common dilemma among women of all sizes, Paredes, an established, FIT trained designer with a decade old clothing brand of her own, created the Convi Jean to meet the universal needs of women and fill a void in the denim market.
She said about the new launch in a press release: “With the Convi Jean, I wanted to find a solution that would give women the best of both worlds, the ability to tighten their jeans at the waist via zippered darts in the back, but with the flexibility to open the zippers to standard size. In creating the jeans, I sought to make a convertible product that would appeal to curvy women like me, while also considering the broader market. The Convi Jean provides the perfect solution and is intended to be just a great fitting jean for all body types.”
The price of the jeans is $79 dollars and they come in sizes 2 to 24. Tune in to HSN tomorrow to shop LIVE with Cenia at 4:00 pm. You can also shop for them right now online at www.hsn.com and on Cenia’s websites at www.ceniaconviajeans.com and www.cenianewyork.com.
