Fashion Addition 14 Plus Proves ‘Large is Lovely’

by | Jun 17, 2014 | Blog | 0 comments

It was 27 years ago when Bill and Marilyn Booth set out to fill a large void in the plus-sized fashion industry. 

Today, the Langley couple and proud owners of Fashion Addition 14 Plus 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.

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: Frank Lyman, Karen  Kane, Eileen FisherSpanner, Sympli, Neon Buddha, Jones New York, Simon Chang, Louben, Lana Lee and Conrad C and— many are even designed and manufactured here in Canada —  a conscious decision for the Booths.

“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.

“For the summer, playful options abound  for the fashionista in everyone, including  outfits in bright colours such as coral,  deep purple, royal blue and turquoise,”  said Marilyn.

“Lighter tones are also popular, from  silver greys to baby blues, as are the store’s print varieties.”

There’s no limit to the available styles  either — from blazers, jeans and mini and  maxi-dresses to blouses, casual T’s and more.

“You’ll find something year around  for a range of occasions, whether you’re  looking for something appropriate for business, pleasure, sport or a casual day  out,” 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.”
