The plus size fashion market in Singapore is underserved. Existing ones, at times, lack taste and class. Moreover, tasteful plus size garments with Islamic Art elements are rare. Using Islamic Art elements, ‘Embrace’ strives to inspire interest in contemporary designs and patterns that can be appropriated into plus size garments; that are exciting, charming and fun.
‘Embrace’ hopes to encourage fellow plus sized ladies to dress comfortably and fashionably to increase their confidence. One should not be afraid to embrace their body shape and size. ‘Embrace’ also seeks to expose the beauty of Islamic Art to the world through the means of fashion.
Last but not least, ‘Embrace’ also serves as a platform for me to pursue my childhood dream of creating a plus-size collection. I think I have done my 10 year old self proud.
