Our friends at the cool blog Madison Plus reported back to us about their amazing experience as media sponsors at The Curvy Revolution in Las Vegas last weekend.
The weekend was packed with activities from work-shops to fashion shows, discussion panels to a modeling competition.
While hanging poolside at Planet Hollywood, the gals from Madison Plus staged an impromptu fashion shoot with plus models, Kelsey Arif and Anne-Sophie– complete with Anna Scholz pieces from the designer’s latest Spring-Summer 2011 collection. How amazing do they look? (The sunshine in Vegas is looking pretty good to us in rainy London Anna Scholz HQ right about now too.)
Check out Madison Plus for their expert shop-the-look tips with Anna’s pieces.
OK, so he’s not exactly eligible to enter our blog’s customer photo competition; but we couldn’t resist sharing this photo of customer Lisa Conway’s kitty, Teddytails, working an Anna Scholz look in his own way!
“Anna’s clothes arrive so lovingly packaged with all that beautiful pink tissue,” Lisa wrote us, “and I think that’s why this AS box has been his most favourite place to relax.”
Buenos Aires-based photographer, Irina Werning has started an ongoing series of photographs called “Back to the Future” in which she has subjects re-enact childhood photographs. The clothing and backgrounds are amazingly and painstakingly re-created. Faces may change over time, but certain qualities of appearance and personality always shine through.
“I love old photos,” Irina writes on her website. “I admit being a nosy photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them. Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today… by the way, this project made me realise I’m a bit obsessive…”

“My daughter took some photographs of me in some favourite Anna Scholz outfits,” Carolyn wrote to us. “I love the digital print dress from last season, and the peacock feather coat from a few seasons ago is just utterly beautiful, no wonder I look happy!”
I have now reached the point where most days I am wearing something that is Anna Scholz: White label, Black label, or Anna Scholz for Svoboda!
Ellen sent us this photo of her in Anna’s funky key print polo shirt.
“My darling daughter gave me a self-made present on my 40th birthday,” she wrote. “I needed my Anna to get me through this day!”
