Yes honey! You definitely heard me right! The beautiful plus size brand, Universal Standard is on their way to Houston on October 14th & 15th for their pop up shop and model search!
With the brand being less than 3 years old, Universal Standard has made such a mark in the plus size community. While offering us luxurious plus size essentials, their presence has been far from basic. Universal Standard has helped the fashion industry offer women sizes 10-28 a choice of great everyday essentials. This is something we definitely needed more of don’t you think?
In 2015, Alexandra and Polina walked away from their marketing and finance corporate positions to help fix what Alex had been going through her entire life which was the lack of modern-quality clothing for plus size women. I’m sure we all can sympathize with her on that!
There are so many fast and quick fixes to plus size fashion that even luxury designers began to think that if they were to offer plus sizes that it would not sell as much as their straight size pieces. Hmmm…I wonder if anyone told these designers that during their first launch, Alex and Polina sold out their high quality essentials line in less than a week!
Be sure to come shop with Universal Standard on Saturday October 14, 2017 and Sunday October 15, 2017 at the Texas Wine School at 2301 Portsmouth Street Houston, TX 77098 from 11am-7pm. The modeling tryouts will be on Saturday October 14, 2017 from 11am-2pm at the same location.
I have been blessed to be able to interview the great Alexandra Waldman and hopefully she will allow me to be the genie pig and try on some clothes for you guys! (lets keep our fingers crossed) So be on the lookout for the interview and some event coverage on my youtube channel.
Until Next Time My Loves,
