The US star has teamed up with the UK retail giant to showcase her new plus-size range
US star Beth Ditto has launched her first plus-size fashion collection.
The Gossip lead singer has unveiled her new range, which will be on sale at Selfridges.
The collection illustrates the 34-year-old’s bold fashion tastes, from Arkansas punk-rocker altering vintage finds, to fashion icon in her own right.
Vibrant pop-art prints are realised in silks and rayons, while gold lamé club looks are off-set by vintage-style tea dresses and well-tailored pencil skirts.
The 11-piece collection will be available in UK sizes 14 – 28, includes and includes form fitting dresses, silk jumpsuits, leggings, tops and a hand-embroidered, vintage-sourced denim jacket.
Prints incorporate lipstick kisses, make up palettes and electric eye prints that add a bold fashion vision frequently missing from plus-size lines.
Beth said of her foray into fashion design:: “I wanted to make pieces to last years. Beyond trends, beyond chain stores. I wanted to create something all its own, something just for us, made with love and consideration. Made ethically in the USA as a small company with no big corporate input.
Uncompromising, unapologetic, and timeless. Go-to pieces designed to last. A movement by us, for us.”
Beth’s collection launched on February and is available in both Greater Manchester Selfridges stores at Exchange Square and the intu Trafford Centre.
