Clements Ribeiro Swan Fall 2012

It's funny, nothing brings my patriotism to a flag waving, yelling at the television screen frenzy like the Olympics. So, I can be all "GO USA!" however, when it comes to fashion - plus size fashion to be exact, the Brits are kind of kicking our asses.

Yes, yes... there are some really great American brands that are making plus fashion a priority but when it comes to being truly forward, my dollars more often than not, are swimming across the pond.

UK retailer Evans, whose Beth Ditto capsule collection a few years back literally left me clutching my pearls has since taken another very forward step tapping designer brand Clements Ribeiro to create a plus size line. Thus far...three to be exact. Check out a few of my favs from the new Clements Ribeiro Swan Collection:

More about Clements Ribeiro Swan 
Clements Ribeiro Swan for Evans returns for Christmas with another beautiful collection, evoking art deco city lights and 1920’s decadence. 

Their third capsule ranges layers on to autumn and like previous seasons it celebrates curves in sensual designs, materials and prints. Now there is the added ‘bling’ of fine beadwork on desirable pieces such as the elegant flapper style dress and gold embellished cardigan. Commenting on their new designs  
Inacio Ribeiro says: “We were channelling Lolita de Lempicka’s muse, a curvy version of Daisy Buchannan of The Great Gatsby. We have also injected lace into the range with pieces inspired by dresses we designed for Adele, giving the collection additional star glamour.” Fiona Ross, Evans Brand Director adds: “Since launching the collaboration in April 2012, the collections have evolved and shown how great design expertise can translate into a versatile and affordable range, giving the plus size woman an even greater choice than ever before.” The Clements Ribeiro Swan Autumn collection is available online at and on Saturday 1st September and Christmas 2012 collection for Evans will be available at, and from October 2012. Sizes range from UK 14-32 (US 10-28).
