So you have curves in all the right places. You turn heads wherever you pass. But nobody knows the struggle you are going through to find authentic and well-fitting outfits for your wardrobe. The search for the solution is finally over.
Brenda Nanyonjo the CEO of Miss Uganda has something cooking for the curvaceous women. She is set to launch a clothing line for them called Miss B Jeans in April. Speaking to this blog, Nanyonjo, said that through experience, it has been hard for her to get well fitting jeans on the local market. “I was having issues with jeans, if a pair fits in the hips, it is too big in the wait exposing the behind and under wear. If it fits in the waist, then I have to squeeze in the curves making them disappear”, she said. It turns out from her research; that many well-endowed women like her were having the same issues so she set out to find the solution. As you read this, the first sample of 100 pieces is selling like hot cake. “So far they like the cut and material’s feel on the skin,” she said. The feedback is meant to help her in making the final designs towards the launch. She intends to make them sophisticated and timeless by not jumping on the trending designs like the distressed look that will get out of style sooner than later. Her advice is for her clients to play around with accessories, tops or shoes to achieve a desired level of maximalism but still remaining classy and trendy. Nanyonjo is not about to leave her curvaceous clients hanging. She promises after sales services at her industrial area based studio. “We are well equipped to do custom fitting and re-sizing to suit our clients’ needs,” she says. The clothing line’s future is planned to go beyond just jeans by expanding into tailor-made tops, dresses etc for the plus size women under the fashion house she co-owns- House of Zirian – Miss Fixit.
