Experienced in retail for over ten years, working in various retail
stores as a stylist, fashion expert, or assistant manager, Marie Denee
lassoed her life experiences both studied and learned to bring her
dream into fruition.
While working in retail, she observed the lack of fashionable options
the contemporary, highly fashioned, impeccably fitting, high quality
fits that work for a woman's curves. Shopping became an art-
learning how to sniff out the latest designers that "get it."
Evidenced that she was not alone, which at times was a relief but even
more a frustration, she questioned, "If there are women out here like
me, why aren't designers catering to our needs?"
Fast forward to her postgraduate days in college and her entre to store
management, Marie Denee learned about the inner workings of retail and
how choices are made to clothe the modern day fashionista. Marie
Denee dedicated her Masters to research what was available and who was
available in the Plus Size industry to answer OUR plea.
Thus, The Curvy Fashionista was born
After completing her studies, Marie Denee set out to share with all the
Curvy.Confident.Chic. Fashionistas she could reach that "we CAN
don the latest and greatest of trends, fashions, and styles that are
made with US in mind!"
Since the launch of The Curvy Fashionista, Marie Denee has interviewed
some of the industry's leading designers, models, and pioneers as well
as championed the latest fashion trends, entertainment news, and body
image issues within the plus community.
