Chloe Nezianya, 23, Liverpool born fashion design Womenswear graduate from Kingston School of Art with a focus on plus-size bodies and their relationship with the luxury fashion sector. Championing diversity by using models of varying sizes, ethnicities and ages.
Her work is driven by the belief that women should not have to compromise comfort over style, and in order to do this, designers must take the responsibility to consider how to empower women through dress.
Chloe’s collection challenges the conservative and uncreative dressing that plus-size woman has become accustomed to by developing and engineering elegant, flattering silhouettes that introduce new ways of adding colour, draping and embroidery to plus-size fashion.
Her research compares the plus-size woman to Amazonian goddesses and warriors, taking inspiration from the luxurious drapes worn by statuesque women in her historical and mythological references.
