Tanesha Awasthi posted some lovely photos on her Girl With Curves blog of her modelling pieces from Anna’s Spring-Summer 2013 White Label collection. Here she is looking fab in Anna’s chic blue tailoring suit as well as the silk back cut-out dress in a mix of Anna’s quirky-sophisticated zoology print.
Lisa Riley came by the studio last week to try on clothes from Anna’s Spring-Summer 2013 collection. She selected several glamorous dresses for various events she’s attending in the near future: she will presenting the award for Best Soap at the upcoming British Soap Awards; she will be a judge on Dance for Comic Relief; and she plans to wear one of Anna’s designs for the cover shot of her now-in-progress book! She also has a sitcom in the works and is generally in high demand to appear at events. We don’t know when she has time to breathe!
Here she pauses for the camera wearing Anna’s Pop Flower print jersey wrap dress from her current Black Label Collection. We look forward to seeing all of her Anna looks!
Daina sent us this photo all the way from Australia. OK, she admits it’s not her smiliest moment… She wrote, “I don’t know why my face is like that; I am always thrilled when I wear this dress.” : )
Here are a few more photos that Anna took during British Plus-Size Fashion Weekend. You get a little taste of the catwalk, a little behind-the-scenes-peek and a much-coveted sneak preview of some of the Autumn-Winter 2013 looks!
Broadcaster, writer and entertainer Amy Lamé stopped by the studio earlier this week to try on clothes from Anna’s Spring-Summer 2013 collection. She will be photographed in Anna’s designs in the next issue of Volup2, the online magazine produced by Velvet d’Amour.
Here’s Amy looking stunning in Anna’s citron lace gathered border dress!
One of the main events during last weekend’s British Plus Size Fashion Weekend was a Styling Masterclass held by Image Consultant, Hannah Jean. Anna Scholz was happy to loan pieces from her Spring-Summer 2013 collections to the workshop.
“As part of the session we looked at body shape, personal style and SS13 trends,” Hannah reported on her Find My Style blog. “The response from everyone was great and we loved being a part of the event.”
“If you can find the right colour to suit your skintone, you don’t have to wear as much makeup! Big bonus in my book! Drape a colour over your shoulder, directly next to your face to see which colours suit you. There will inevitably be a colour that makes you look radiant almost immediately and other colours that completely wash you out. A quick colour test will tell you what colour is the winner for you. Keep these colours in mind for those shopping trips!”
Here are also some photos from SJP’s write-up for Evolve.
Valerie of Blog to Be Alive stepped out in Anna’s fairytale print jersey shirt dress recently. Love how she styled it with the purple and black heeled boots!
We were thrilled that the Vogue Curvy blog chose one of our catwalk pieces to highlight their coverage of the British Plus-Size Fashion Weekend. This gorgeous digital print jersey number is from Anna’s Spring-Summer 2013 White Label collection.

Last Friday, Anna had a chance to mingle with model and blogger, Tanesha Awasthi, and the navabi team. Tanesha’s blog Girl With Curves was the winner of navabi’s Best Curvy Blog Award 2012. Part of her prize package was a trip to London for London Fashion Week and to meet Anna Scholz.
Tanesha said she loved meeting Anna, one of her “curvy sheroes,” and the feeling was quite mutual. As Tanesha wrote on her blog, “the morning consisted of lots of fashion chat, browsing Anna’s Spring & Fall 2013 Collections, and of course, me finding a way to get my hands on some of the clothes!”
Here are a few snaps from Girl With Curves.
Awasthi started GirlWithCurves.com as a way to express her passion for fashion. But it has since turned into a mission for change by pushing the boundaries of fashion and encouraging positive body image for women of all shapes and sizes. Her blog was ranked the #2 style blog in audience interaction on facebook, with a 65% engagement rate (Fashionbi). It was ranked the #8 fashion blog on Tumblr (measured by traffic and subscriber rates). It also was ranked #59 out of the top 100 fashion sites in the world (Technorati). Awasthi has appeared on the cover of Skorch Magazine and on Forever 21 billboards.
