Fall has officially arrived, which means it’s time to swap lazy days at the beach and sundresses for crisp autumn air and cozy sweaters.
While it can be tough to bid farewell to the dog days of summer, autumn represents new beginnings — whether it’s the start of a new school year or a fabulous new fall wardrobe.
Over at Fashion Addition 14 Plus, one will find everything they need for a fashion-forward fall — high quality pieces designed with the curvaceous lady in mind.
Catering to sizes 14 and up, the go-to store for the stylish full-figured woman, features a wide range of high-fashion brands from designers, such as: UBU, Frank Lyman, Karen Kane, Eileen Fisher, Jones New York, Spanner, Sympli, Neon Buddha, Simon Chang, Louben, Lana Lee and Conrad C — many are even designed and manufactured here in Canada — a conscious decision for Fashion Addition owners Bill and Marilyn Booth.
It was 27 years ago when the Booths set out to fill a large void in the plus-sized fashion industry.
Today, the couple and proud owners have six thriving stores scattered across B.C. and Alberta, proving that a plus-size fashion evolution can in fact happened when strong ideas and determination are at the helm.
“As far as Canadian product and manufacturing, I am always a proud Canadian, loving the idea that we support our own garment industry and keep our Canadian Fashion Designers creating amazing full-figured fashions,” said Marilyn.
With competitive prices and seasonal sales events, there’s always something new to discover — this season is no exception.
And, let’s be honest, who isn’t looking forward to leather boots and soft cashmere?
“This fall is all about luxurious fabrics, faux leather and fun, playful embellishments,” noted Marilyn, who also notes that leggings are as popular as ever.
“Also, this season is UBU’s collection of ruched legging made from soft bamboo. The breathable fabric is machine washable — really, it’s the perfect travel-friendly garment because wrinkles just fall out.”
There’s no limit to the available styles either — from blazers, jeans and winter jackets to blouses, casual T’s and more.
“You’ll find something year-round for a range of occasions, whether you’re looking for something appropriate for business, pleasure, sport or a casual day out at the pumpkin patch,” said Marilyn.
“Our range of outfits and accessories are ideal for women’s entire wardrobes.”
She notes that it’s amazing to see how many fashion designers have come onboard in recent years to offer a selection of attire for full-figured women .
“It was once an overlooked segment of the fashion industry,” said Marilyn.
“Thankfully, plus-sizes are now mainstream and celebrated. Unique events such as the Full-Figure Fashion Week in New York are tailored to the plus-size fashion community, reinforcing that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes.”
Celebrating real women with “real curves” will always be a key component to Fashion Addition 14 Plus’s philosophy.
With a full range of styles and colour options available, the sales team continue to strive to make the shopping experience a positive one that celebrates the unique beauty of each woman who comes into the store.
” Having curves and dressing them in style is not only fun, but can offer an exhilarating and rewarding result — nowadays, there are endless options and choices to flatter all figures,” said Marilyn, noting that her team are always happy to help clients look and feel fabulous.
“This is one of the most important focus areas for the Fashion Addition 14 Plus sales team: understanding current fashion trends, the range and flexibility of different fabrics as well as being able to assess a good fit for our clients. After all, it’s all about making sure the clients not only finds what she’s looking for, but has a great experience while doing it.”
For anyone who hasn’t been into the Langley location, store manager Cindy and her team encourage them to swing by the store at 308 – 6339 200 St.
“We are equally excited to meet all those new clients— come in for a visit, let us show you around, our door is always open.”
