Plussize Designer Spotlight: Cabiria

Plussize Designer Spotlight: Cabiria

As you know, I’m a frequent visitor/obsessive shopper at Chicago’s fabulous plussize boutique, vive la femme. Earlier this summer, I wandered into the store and was immediately drawn to a riot of color on the racks…When I pulled out the items, I found gorgeous rich colors and bold prints…wonderful, unique details and beautiful designs–all hallmarks of designer Eden Miller’s line, Cabiria. And last month, I was thrilled to learn that she was hosting a party at the boutique, and that I’d get to meet her in person!

Eden is just as fabulous as her designs…quirky, cool and bold. I fell in love with her and her dresses (and the strongly-laced bourbon mint juleps) in under a minute.

Here we are modeling two of her fabulous pieces: Eden is in the adorable Giuseppina in Butterfly print and I’m in the Flaminia in Raspberry.

The Giuseppina is so adorable! From the print to the contrast piping to the shoulder details…and not to mention a super high-quality and completely comfortable silk knit fabric! And the raspberry color of this Flaminia dress is so rich and luscious that I’m surprised people weren’t trying to bite me…(ok ok, that might have been the mint julep talking!). The deep surplice v-neckline is busty-gal friendly, and the origami inspired double box pleated sleeves are so unique–just the type of detail that sets Cabiria apart as a high-end designer.

Ahhhh and how adorable is Mz. Stephanie Sack, owner of vive la femme in the Valentina in Orange Floral??? And not to mention this stunning Francesca sundress in Orange Dot that I’m wearing. So bright and fun and perfectly proportioned for curvy ladies!

And here’s Amanda modeling another one of Cabiria’s stunning print dresses, which is unfortunately already sold out!

If you’re looking for high-end designs with superior quality and unique details, check out the Spring/Summer 2013 Cabiria Lookbook. I guarantee you’ll fall in love just like I did!

Also…if you visit the site, you’ll catch a glimpse of yours truly modeling the Flaminia dress!

I can’t wait to see next year’s collection, which Eden hopes to release early in 2014. Her star is rising, folks…so keep your eye out for her and score one of her amazing dresses before they sell out!
