The very first Nigerian styling and fashion agency dedicated to plus-sized ladies, Tobi Ogundipe Styling and Fashion Agency, has released its first collection titled Valiente.
Its about that time when plus-sized ladies get as celebrated as the skinny-model types, and this is the first step in the right direction.
Valiente, which means 'brave' in Spanish, offers a collection for the fashion forward plus size woman who will not be forced to conform to fashion norms.
The label describes the collection as 'a vibrant representation of the Tobi Ogundipe woman, it includes prints and cuts that flatter your curves, pieces that will transition seamlessly from day to night and party wear.'
The agency was created to provide ready to wear fashion garments, image consultancy, personal and wardrobe styling, plus size bridal consultations and personal shopping.
The brand was founded by Oluwatobiloba Ogundipe, a plus size fashion enthusiast and body positive advocate.
'It’s not about what size you are, it’s about your self confidence and finding the right outfit for your body type. Our goal is to make sure that the plus sized woman is seen as stylish and striking,' she says.
The collection features figure flattering occasion and everyday clothing in vibrant colours and prints, embracing the fuller figure in a fashionable way.
