A flurry of exciteable blog posts are emerging in the fatosphere about the runway show for for Aussie plus-size retailer City Chic, and I’m happy to be adding to it!
I’ve heard mixed things about the brand: that the quality isn’t as good as the prices dictate, and the looks aren’t particularly on trend. But from the looks of this show, they’re at least trying to rectify one of these things. According to this article, their target demographic is 18 – 28 year olds, and as a result they’ve provided a selection of cute floral dresses, mini skirts (and I do mean mini, not 5mm above knee length!) and biker studs. It’s not perfect by any means, but it’s still pretty awesome!
Here’s a selection of my favourite outfits – in the meantime I suggest you check out Corpulent’s report as they were in the audience!
Is that a peplum I spy? Fantastic!
Major, MAJOR belt lust.
Love the colour blocking on this!
This isn’t particularly trendy, but the prom fit, polka dots and combination of black/white/pink are just totally me!
Gorgeous, and bang on trend, too!
And… what’s this? Haute-plus? I would pay so much money for this skirt. It’s utter decadence.

What do you think? Have City Chic gotten it right?
