Fashion To Figure, (FTF) one of the first fashion retailers catering to the plus-size market, has partnered with Gabrielle Union's namesake clothing line to offer plus-sizes from 12-24. The first Gabrielle Union x FTF Collection features holiday styles curated to reflect Gabrielle Union's glamour and edge paired with FTF's unapologetic celebration of curves.
"My line's availability at Fashion To Figure is a critical and personal moment for me," Gabrielle Union said in a statement. "This is for my family and all the plus-size women who have messaged me asking for Gabrielle Union. This partnership goes beyond offering a more inclusive and extended size range, it was a deliberate effort to focus on a technical fit that celebrates curves."
She added that, "It was a natural first step to offer the size range that FTF currently offers, but we are also working on getting the fit right for sizes beyond a 24 for future collections. I am so excited to be on this fashion journey, every collection levels up and I am closer to my personal goal of having a brand with bomb clothes that fit all bodies."
"Gabrielle Union has an amazing fashion sensibility and we are so excited to welcome her to the FTF family," said Nick Kaplan, president and co-founder of Fashion To Figure, in a statement. "We are thrilled that Gabrielle choose our fit and brand to continue to evolve her collections with."
With the plus-size market set to grow to 24 billion dollars in the U.S. by 2020 according to research from Coresight, Gabrielle Union chose the perfect time to expand her plus-size offerings. Total growth of the plus-size market is expected to grow at twice the rate of the average clothing market.
