  1. Hi, I know this is probably a little spammy, I have just been doing research on indie designers and found this post. I am planning on doing a few plus size runway shows in 2016, so I guess I was just checking out the competition.

    Anyway just based on your obviously love of brights and prints, I think you would appreciate the initial line that I put on kickstarter. Personally, I LOVE prints and wear them almost exclusively, and I had a really hard time finding more modern styles that I liked. So I made my own. The most popular is a red geometric print on a fit & flare dress. If you have a minute, take a look, and I would love any feedback you want to give me on the line.

    I was also super sad about DD and Candy Strike closing, they were both inspirations to me. I hope that the designers will come back at some point, I know the owner of DD wanted to focus on her family and CS was going back to school to become a teacher, but they are both such good designers/curators, I feel like there is a real hole in the market now.

    1. Hi Andrea!!! I just took a look at your video and the product looks awesome! I love when people design with fat bodies in mind! If you have a facebook page or anything that you’d like me to spread the word about your kickstarter on, please let me know! Best of luck in all your ventures!!!! <3

      1. Thank you so much! I am glad you liked it. When I studied apparel production I only focused on fitting for plus size bodies because no one is doing it! And it was something that wasn’t encouraged so I always had to figure things out for myself – my patternmaking instruction book didn’t even deal with sizing above a 14. So I always knew that plus size was where I wanted to focus.
        My FB page is here: and yes I would love if you promoted it. You’re amazing! Thanks again. 🙂

  2. Hi there! Airdrie from Joolz here again, just wanted to say I’m also an indie designer with handmade clothing 🙂
    Thanks for all these great lists xo

  3. Oh and I do up to size 32, but will make for sizes beyond that on request too, I haven’t had anyone ask me yet but I can totally do that 🙂

  4. OMG I love you girl. I just checked out some of these indie designers and ordered a cute little sumthin from Zeli For She. I would not have known about ZFS or most of the other indie designers had it not been for your blog. Forever your follower 🙂
