This brand-new Christian Siriano confession is making us scream yaaasss!
The fashion designer recently appeared on a panel in New York City and revealed that expanding his brand to include plus sizes has—wait for it—tripled his revenue.
He said, “Adding plus sizes to my line tripled my business. Why wouldn’t you do that?! Do we not want to triple the business? Do we not think these women should wear our clothes? Do we not want these women to have beautiful things because we’re afraid they’re not beautiful? What is going on here?”
You probably recognize Siriano as the mastermind behind the wardrobes of Leslie Jones, Michelle Obama, Angelina Jolie and Oprah Winfrey. Today, his business is 50 percent plus-size and inspiring others to follow suit.
“We got Moda Operandi to change their whole website—now they go up to our sizes,” he added. “Knowing we have a part in change like that, it’s amazing…but it’s still crazy to me that it’s not the norm.”
Us, too, Christian. Us, too.
