New York fashion week kicked off this week and one designer is already making history. Eden Miller, the first designer with a plus-size collection to ever show at New York's Fashion Week is called Cabiria.
Its a high end plus sized label , named after the 1957 Federico Fellini film, “Nights of Cabiria” and designed for women sized 12 to 24. Eden Miller is a designer who works as the wardrobe supervisor for the political satire created by “Doonesbury” cartoonist Garry Trudeau, "Alpha House," starring John Goodman. Her line Cabiria launched in Feb. 2013 and is known for her luxury fabric and prints. She is one of six up & coming designers to be chosen by Fordham Law School’s Fashion Law Institute, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the business of fashion.
Although there is some improvements in the plus size apparel markets the apparel business is often a very slow paced growing industry, not to mention that plus size makes up less than 20% of the apparel business.
The story designers like Eden Miller and Gabi Gregg, the “fatkini” blogger whose took the fashion industry by storm with plus-sized bikinis show that the plus size markets are untapped and highly ignored.
Eden Miller plus sized line Cabiria retails in cost from $225 to $300.
