PLUS-SIZED fashion has found a new home, with the opening of Bent Creations ladies fashion boutique in Graceville last week.
Michelle Bent, the designer and founder of Bent Creations said her label provided stylish designs and bold colours, something she found often lacking in plus-size ranges.
“Rockman’s, David Jones, and other specialty retailers have seemingly reduced plus-size fashion ranges, leaving me in many instances no option but to design and make my own clothes,” she said.
A 14-week stint spent selling her designs at the Southbank markets was so successful Ms Bent decided to open her own store.
The stock includes jackets, dresses, skirts and pants, all made from 100 per cent cotton. “When you’re a larger size the heat can be terrible and cotton breathes really well,” she said. “Classical white, black and red are staple colours of the range along with bright yellow, lime green and orange for winter.”
* The store is open 10am-5pm, Monday to Friday and 9.30am-4.30pm on Saturdays. For after hours appointments, phone Michelle Bent on 0402 821 883.
