Saks Fifth Avenue NYC to Carry Plus-Size Chanel, Dolce and YSL
Stop the presses.
The New York City location of Saks is piloting a program that will have them selling plus-sized clothing with high-end designer labels. According to Racked, sizes from select designers will no longer stop at a size 10 (see my earlier blog post lamenting this unfortunate trend here) and instead be available up to a size 14. Some pieces will even be available up to a size 16 or 20.
Wow. Someone pinch me.
Participating designers include Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Toula, Akris, Armani, Carolina Herrera, Escada, Donna Karan, St. John, Oscar de la Renta, Max Mara, Valentino, Michael Kors, Yves Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen, Fendi and Roberto Cavalli.
Sound to good to be true?
Well, there is a catch.
Only one of each size will be stocked for most of these pieces.
Because – obviously – the demand for these pieces is small.
Getting your running shoes on now to beat the crowds.
Well, it’s a start at least… if the initiative proves to be successful, Saks will begin to stock plus-sized clothing in stores around the country.
… I am feeling just a bit less invisible today.
