Our interview with Mirella from Stylicious

Mirella, designer and founder of Stylicious, tells us about her beginnings as a designer and explains us how the plus size market will develop.

Being a European size 34, how come you went into designing plus size clothing?

When I was 21 years old, I started my first fashion boutique in “regular sizes”. It was a young girls dream come true of course. But very soon I noticed that it was very difficult to dress my size 44 and 46 customers with the labels I sold at that moment. In my opinion this was absurd, since the Dutch women are a size 42 average. So I decided to open another store specialized in plus size clothing. It was a complete hit! I did not think in sizes, but thought in body shapes and how to make them look their best! Just as I did in my “regular size” store. I loved working with plus size woman! It was my passion to show them how to dress their curves and look fabulous regarding size. To help them realize that they are worth to be seen, and that they do not have to hide themselves by wearing black sweaters all the time. To give them more self esteem and empower them by just feeling confident about themselves! Amazing that clothes can do that to a person!
