Cabiria is a designer plus size clothing line inspired by Italian mid-century cinema, especially the circus themes of Federico Fellini, and whimsical French 1930’s era fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli. Designer Eden Miller loves to use beautiful, vibrant prints and colors in figure flattering silhouettes. And her designs have caught the eye of many which led to her showing Cabiria at Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week last September and being the first plus size line to grace the NYFW runway.

Eden Miller really listens to her customer and announced recently via Cabiria’s blog that while the brand continues to be well received, it was missing a component: being accessible to those women who may not be able to afford pieces from her Cabiria line. With that said, she will be launching a new lower price point line called...

Eden states in her blog:

“‘La Strada’ means The Street in Italian, nodding to the street style, fashion forward aspects of the new line. It’s also the title of another Fellini film from 1954, lest you thought we’d forgotten our roots. The pieces will still be designed with our acclaimed eye for detail and impeccable fit, but will now include more wash-and-wear pieces, more stretch to the fabrics, and some contemporary design elements.

The main line of Cabiria will still go on, creating pieces in fine fabrics and detailed finishes, and we will continue to manufacture all our pieces from both lines in the heart of New York’s Garment District. I’m very much hoping this brand diversification will open up the door for more women to wear Cabiria very soon. The aim is to deliver this new line in time for a late summer delivery to shops.”

We’re excited and can’t wait to see what Eden presents with La Strada. From the looks of what she already offers with Cabiria, we have no doubt it’s going to be fabulous.
