In business since 2005, New York City-based mother-daughter team Elaine and Monif Clarke founded their plus size clothing company, Monif C., with a desire to give more options to women with full curves.
Monif is still successfully running the label with a relentless passion for beautifying full-figured women.
“When I design, I look at what I want to wear and I say ‘if I like it, our customers will like it,’“It’s connected to what I think the key things every plus size girl should have in her wardrobe.” – Monif C.
And her methodology has been working. Not only has she dressed celebrities like Amber Riley and Kim Coles, she has also garnered a deal for her line to be sold on Nordstrom.com.
The fabulous plus size designer spoke to us about her current releases and how curvy girls can looks sexy in every season. Read the interview here and view the photographs of the Fall line up to come below.
