With just a few days left until we welcome in 2014, we’re getting ready to wave a fond farewell to 2013, an exciting year for us all at Evans.
From taking our Curvy Street Style photobooth to events all across the UK, showcasing our new collection with Kaela Humphries at Full Figured Fashion Week, having holiday fun with 5 gorgeous bloggers to model Clements Ribeiro Swan SS13, meeting even more lovely bloggers at Plus North, celebrating the one year anniversary of our Marble Arch London flagship store, announcing our Cut for Evans fashion design initiative and creating a fun video style series with Lisa Riley, it’s been quite the year for us.
Here’s to another year of fashion, fun and more!
With love, Evans x
We’re introducing a groundbreaking new collection: ‘Cut for Evans’. Cut for Evans is our young designers’ initiative, bringing fresh talent and fashion design with no size limitation to the High Street. Alice Farrow (Bournemouth University) and Rebecca Partington (Kingston University) will see their designs launched online and in-store early next year.
Judged by a panel made up of our in-house design and buying teams, Louise Court – editor of Cosmopolitan, Kat Byrne – fashion editor of Closer, and Remi Ray – blogger and founder of Plus Size Fashion Weekend, Alice’s contemporary and bold print designs wowed the panel, whilst Rebecca’s fun and unique knitwear collection is predicted to be a High Street Hit.
Evans’ Design Manager, Rebecca vann Reicher, says: ‘The industry is very rigid in how they approach body shape and we wanted to not only help change this mindset, but also show that not everything has to be showcased on a size 8 frame.’

This year, the Vogue Fashion’s Night Out event hit the stylish streets of Manchester. A proud celebration of British fashion, offering discounts, fun events and more, we also joined the ranks and set up our Curvy Street Style photobooth at our Manchester Arndale store.

Alongside taking photos and scribbling thoughts on our Evans board, we also gave our customers lucky gift cards, helped them get ready for the October frost and the party season, and shared our expert shape advice.

Back in May, we visited the bright lights of New York City to get involved in Full Figured Fashion Week. (See our photo diary here.) We shopped, we met customers, we chatted fashion with plus size bloggers and even showcased our AW13 collection. But more importantly, we got to spend a day with the beautiful Kaela Humphries, who’s the face of Evans.
Watch our video with Kaela below to steal her style and beauty tips:
Last week we made the annual trip to the bright lights of New York City to celebrate Full Figured Fashion Week, the most exciting date in our diaries over at Evans HQ.
A week long festivity that combines industry work with mingling and chatting to our US shoppers and bloggers, we had an amazing week meeting some of the stylish, inspiring and downright stunning plus size ladies from across the pond.
From meeting Kaela Humphries, the newest face of Evans, to showcasing our AW13 collection, a sunset cruise with a white dress code to the Curves for A Cure runway show (pink themed!) in aid of breast cancer awareness, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at one of the best celebrations of plus size fashion.

Inspired by Prada and Schiaparelli exhibition in trendy New York, for our fourth collection together, London based design duo Suzanne Clements and Inacio Ribeiro have evolved the Clements Ribeiro Swan for Evans name with a quirky, fun statement in playful prints and vibrant colours.
Even more exciting: for the first time, we enlisted the help of five of the most stylish and influential personalities in the plus size blogosphere to showcase the stunning collection on differing shapes – just as you all mentioned in our Style Dilemma chats – and to provide powerful inspiration, whilst giving a statement of the relevance of plus size fashion.
We posted a teaser on our Facebook page last week, as well as our exclusive ‘Meet the Bloggers’ video, and it’s finally time to launch the collection.
See what our bloggers have to say about the collection, and more important – welcome to the fun and fashionable world of Clements Ribeiro Swan SS13 Holiday…
“Sometimes a woman just wants to get dressed up (for no reason) and instantly feel amazing at the same time. Sassy and classy in one collection? Yes ma’am!” – Marie Denee
“I chose the kiss shirt dress as it incorporated my love for high street fashion trends as well as being funky and bold.” – Callie Thorpe
“I chose to model the gorgeous swimming costume. It was very me as it was a gorgeous blue colour, it showed a hint of cleavage and it made me feel very elegant and classy.” – Georgina Horne
“The monochrome zebra print is fabulously kitsch and fun. Perfect for creating a bold look in my wardrobe this season.” – Nicolette Mason
“I picked the lobster because I’m obsessed with irreverent fun and bizarre kitsch. It’s hard to find patterns that are as fun as I want them to be!” – Bethany Rutter
