Plus Size Fashion News: Lane Bryant Announces Their First-Ever Designer Collaboration with Isabel And Ruben Toledo To Launch Capsule Collection

According to Women’s Wear Daily, the capsule collection will start off with a novelty tee and tote bag, with the entire collection having a full launch in Spring 2014.  The capsule collection will consist of ready-to-wear clothing, outerwear and accessories. Women’s Wear Daily reports that there are even plans for a fashion show next season to give the capsule collection more exposure to the fashion world.

The New York-based fashion designer couple have only done two previous forays into the mass market: a swimwear line for Target to celebrate the opening of the retailer’s Harlem store and a shoe line for Payless that Isabel designed solo. So this is the first time they are designing for the plus size mass market and with Lane Bryant being one of the largest plus size retailers in the country, this is definitely a big deal in the plus size fashion world.

With Isabel being the one responsible for First Lady Michelle Obama’s 2009 inauguration outfit (see image below) and the duo’s work showing that they know how to design for a woman’s body while adding some glitz and glam, we are certain that this capsule collection is going to be FABULOUS!
