Curvy girls, you can now rent designer clothes in your size
Your runway favourites now come in an inclusive sizing metric
Never does the adage ‘one size fits all’ seem more rhetorical than when you head out to buy a gorgeous new outfit… only to be stymied by a restrictive sizing chart. Good news though, the world of fashion has been doing a lot to repair the damage done — Prabal Gurung’s plus-sized collection for Lane Bryant is still topping our list of favourites. (Check it out here.) But if you’re looking for something a little closer home, clothing rental portal Stage3 may be able to help you out.
Co-founded by designer Rina Dhaka, the two-year-old fashion rental has taken it upon itself to champion inclusivity in fashion with a special collection for curvy girls that launches this Friday. The star-studded lineup features runway favourites Anamika Khanna, Rina Dhaka and Ridhi Mehra among others, with pricing starting at Rs 1,999. Co-founder Sabena Puri explains, “While interacting with our customers, we noticed an under-serviced need for curvy women in India. Every woman is beautiful and deserves to experiment with fashion, and this is our attempt to help them do just that.”
