With an established name in the global fashion community after successful showings in Dubai and Istanbul, the luxury full figured atelier is ready to launch in the American market. Teaming with the Underwraps Agency, which launched in early 2012, Ann Nahari will be only the second plus size brand to present during the famed industry semi-annual event. This collaboration continues the revolutionary mission to showcase the beauty and style of the full figured woman.
"I am excited about working with the Underwraps Agency to show during New York Fashion Week because the agency's vision and energy blends perfectly with my company's vision of chic, sophisticated high-end attire," says Ann Nahari founder and head designer, Sumiyyah Rasheed.
Known for creating luxury plus size ready-to-wear and lingerie, Ann Nahari targets the curvaceous woman sizes 14-22 who seeks high quality fabrications and impeccable fit. This noteworthy event will feature top trend-driven styles that empower and inspires.
“Plus size women are beautiful and deserve to be seen as such. Why shouldn’t they have the option to buy clothing which reflects that they are beautiful, stylish and chic? There should not be a limit to their choices of clothing on the racks. On the contrary―there should be a plethora of options in every clothing shop for plus sizes, just like there are for sizes 0-12.” says Rasheed.
The Ann Nahari fashion show will take place at 6pm on Saturday, February 9th in the heart of New York's Garment District at Studio Arte (located at 265 West 37th Street, 17th Floor).
