Mz. Gossip Girl aka Nina Parker understands what it means when folks say representation matters!
After years of struggling to find appealing plus size gowns for the red carpet, the former E! host decided to design her own. Kinda like if they don’t give you a seat at the table..you create your own table!
Plus-size women are often taught to hide themselves. This collection is meant to make them stand apart and be proud of who they are.
Parker started working on the collection in December 2019. The debut collection offers bodysuits, dresses, skirts, tops and jeans and incorporates design elements like zippers, power mesh and stretchy fabric that allows for comfortable and flattering wear.
In addition to the pieces made with stretchy and comfortable fabrics, the collection includes a graffiti-style printed dress that features words of affirmation, such as “Queen,” “Love,” “Hustle” and “Hope.”
The red carpet correspondent has become the first Black woman to create a plus size only brand within the Macy’s franchise.
