Next week, fashion designer Rachel Roy will debut RACHEL Rachel Roy Curvy, her first collection for women size 14 and up.
Roy says that the 45-piece collection, which comes in sizes 14 to 24 and ranges from $55 to $179, has been a long time coming.
"Women have been asking me for a curvy line for years," Roy tells BuzzFeed. "I'm lucky to be able to do it now, and I wish I could have done it sooner."
"Curvy customers want exactly what everyone else wants: comfy clothes that make them feel good, intelligent, and sexy," says Roy, echoing what many plus-size women have been saying to the designers all along.
"My inspiration for this collection was taken directly from my contemporary line. There's not one design you'll see in the curvy line that you won't see in my contemporary collection, and that was very important to me."
