Sophie Theallet: The Newest designer for Lane Bryant & Plus Size designs!!!

First Jason Wu at Target, then Zac Posen at David's Bridal now Sophie Theallet at LB!!!!

Sophie Theallet, a French designer who got her start working for Jean-Paul Gaultier and has been known to dress clients like Michelle Obama, will be designing a line of lingerie for Lane Bryant plus size industry retailer.
Coming off the heels of LB showing their first ever designer collection, Isabel Toledo, the plus size industry is all a buzz on this one.

There are no pictures yet only a drawing of a lingerie set that may or may not be produced. 

"We want to bring something special to our clients, and show that she doesn't have to be excluded from what many women enjoy. Beautiful clothing should not be limited to size 12 and under."-Lane Bryant


I find it interesting that the designers who are working within retail giants, like Lane Bryant, are designers that have been called "edgy" for using models that have hips in there runway shows!
There are once again trail blazers in an ever changing industry.  
Or, could it be that the high end designers are finally hearing that plus size is just as lucrative as strait size? Some say these designer are just trying to get a piece of the pie but I feel the more the merrier.  Plus, now I get the chance to wear designers I have admire but was never able to wear.
