Beth Ditto is already a plus-size fashion icon thanks to her glam-punk style, but now? The Gossip frontwoman is about to make her name as a designer - and the clothes are seriously good.
After that totally covetable collection for plus-size fashion retailer Evans, and the t-shirt launched last December in collaboration with Jean Paul Gaultier, Beth has released her very own fashion line, including every piece you need in your plus-size capsule wardrobe.
70s style eveningwear? You’re spoilt. Tailored workwear? There’s that too. And for those casual days, amp up your super-soft leggings with hand-embroidered denim jackets. Everything has been designed with an eye to the fuller figure, meaning hemlines, sleeves and necklines are especially designed for plus-size women.

What that doesn’t mean is black, sack-like styles that are designed to hide your figure. Oh no. Beth’s line is bright, fun and fitted – we can’t decide between the metallic jumpsuits or the lipstick-printed two-piece for our favourite pick from the collection.
Beth wanted to create a collection with pieces that “last years. Beyond trends, beyond chain stores. I wanted to create something all its own, something just for us, made with love and consideration. Made ethically in the USA as a small company with no big corporate input. Uncompromising, unapologetic, and timeless. Go-to pieces designed to last. A movement by us, for us".

The 11 piece collection, which is hand-sewn in NYC by the way, is available in UK sizes 18-32 at Selfridges.com, and was shot on Barbie Ferreria and Philomena Kwao, both vocal icons in the plus-size modeling industry.
