Many women above a size 12 have walked out of a store feeling let down — that one eye-catching piece doesn't even come in a size that fits. Some can shrug it off, accepting disappointment as a condition of having a fuller figure. Others prefer to take matters into their own hands, as Aysegul Ilter did.
Finding inspiration from her frustration, Ilter has designed the new plus line Shegul
. Influenced by her curvy friends and her own experience working for cult fashion favorite Maiyet
, she aspires to fill the gap she perceives in the market for high-quality, high-end clothing for women who wear above a size 10.
Shegul, for sizes 12 through 24, will have unique luxury prints informed by Ilter's world travels. Expect classic silhouettes with sleek, modern, and sometimes athletic-inspired touches, with a look reminiscent of street style stars.
