A couple weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend Tess Holiday’s collection at Macy’s in NYC. Tess has inspired me in so many ways to be the woman I am today. What I also love about Tess, she puts together looks that she loves and could care less what anyone else has to say about it. Her confidence screams loud and clear for all to see. I can speak for myself and for millions of other women when I say; to see a size 22 Supermodel on the cover of a magazine is an example of perseverance and hard work. I appreciate every barrier she has broken so women across the world can have better opportunities to pursue their dreams.
Lets get into this beautiful launch! When I heard Tess was coming out with her own collection I immediately got exited! Her style commands the attention of people in any room and inspires me to be confident in myself. Chastity (Garner Style) hosted the event and is another inspiring woman that I absolutely love! They had the most adorable setup. They started with a few questions in which Tess spoke about her collection and what it meant to her. Then a few models (including my girl Laura Lee) showed of some of the great pieces. As each model came out, Tess explained the direction she took with the looks and how she wanted women to feel in her collection. As each piece came out I fell more and more in love with it! I felt as if Tess heard us. This line screams sexy, fun and confidence!
One of my favorite pieces was this military jacket which had these cool leather stripes and gold studs that had to come home with me! Another one of my favorites were a pair of pants she created with rips on the side. There was also a super cute bodysuit with strings up by the neck line.I smiled as I looked through the collection because I could remember going into a store and walking out to unhappy, empty-handed and feeling left out. Tess’s collection gave me a new reason to shop confidently.
The event ended with the models standing on platforms so we could see some of the pieces on real curves! Tess and Chastity also hosted an awesome meet and greet. I admired how sweet, kind and loving they were. Tess’s collection is amazing and I can’t wait to see all the new pieces as the line continues to grow.
