Just when we think Eloquii could not surprise us anymore…
As we stated earlier this year, the contemporary plus size fashion brand continues to make major moves as they evolve their business.
From announcing they plan to expand their size range to 32 in Fall 2018 to then partnering with Draper James, a lifestyle brand by actress Reese Witherspoon earlier this year, we have had our eyes on Eloquii, as well as our support, since their moves are helping facilitate change within the plus size fashion industry.
So imagine how fast our jaws dropped when we opened the latest Eloquii email today.
Once we picked our jaws up from the floor, we had to look into this further. Here’s what we found out via Glamour:
“Wu is a favorite of celebrities like Karlie Kloss, Diane Kruger, and Lily Aldridge. The Taiwanese-Canadian designer, perhaps best known for his evening wear, gained worldwide recognition for dressing First Lady Michelle Obama for the 2009 Inauguration Ball, and has even outfitted our very own American Duchess.) This collaboration would mark his first dedicated plus-size collection.”
Jodi Arnold, Eloquii’s creative director, told Glamour:
“We love Jason Wu’s dedication to designing beautiful clothes for women that celebrate their strength and sensuality. With this collection, the Jason Wu brand brings glamorous sensibility paired with their distinctive feminine design style. Jason has always been dedicated to designing beautiful clothing for women that celebrates their form, so working with Jason to bring his aesthetic to our customer has been an exciting experience.”
Eloquii also posted a teaser on Instagram that has us wanting more:
On the sign-up page, there’s also a 15-second teaser video showing Wu sketching a design that presumably will be one of the styles in the limited-edition collection.
Get your wallets ready, Ladies. Start saving some money. Because this is MAJOR. And Eloquii can just take all of our money right now.
Sign up here to get updated on the new collection, including the launch.
Will this collection be available up to a size 32, since the extended sizes are launching this fall? Can you imagine??? Size 24+ fashionistas, please get ready.
