The Top 10 Curvy Stories Of 2013 – #6 of 10

#6 – Cabiria, First Curvy Collection @ NYFW

Screen Shot 2013-12-23 at 10.52.05 PMOver a three-day weekend Eden Miller began designing Cabiria, her first curvy collection. The decision would ignite her career in ways she never imagined. While the launching of the line alone is worth celebrating, the bigger news is that Eden was invited to be part of the 2013 New York Fashion Week, the first curvy designer to do so.

According to an interview with Liz Black of Refinery29.com it was hard work and timing that seemed to bring it all together .

“I’m incredibly excited and trying not to let the pressure of being “The First” rattle me. There are designers out there who I would have figured would be before me — I am very new to the business, frankly — and it’s the luck of the draw, as well as the look of the line. I definitely want to open the door to other designers who have beautiful lines so they can come in with the same standards they place on the straight sizes. Exclusive, but not prohibitive.”
