Anna was sorry not to be able to attend FFFW. The four-day event was organised by former plus-size model Gwen DeVoe. FFFW included a runway model competition, panel discussions on the industry and, of course, designs for bodies size 16 and above. Our friends at Madison Plus were there and said it was a smashing success.

We’ve received some lovely photos recently from customers wearing their favourite SimplyBe ensembles.
For a number of years, Anna has designed clothing and bedding for the online and catalogue retailer SimplyBe.
Since they were so kind as to send the photos to us, we thought we’d share them with you too!
“This was me (mother of the bride) at my daughter Linsey’s wedding last month,” Trudi wrote us. “I searched high and low for the right dress and was thrilled to find this one of yours from SimplyBe. It was lovely to wear and I felt cool and comfortable all day.”
Naomi sent us this photo “of me and my friends having the best time in Kos, Greece. Wearing my very favourite Anna Scholz for SimplyBe tankini…“.
“I love this dress so much!” wrote Jessica. “I wore it for Ladies Day at Royal Ascot and received many compliments! My husband Simon took the photo in our garden.”
Congratulations go out to Julia Curtis as our May customer photo competition winner. Julia submitted to us this photo, which was taken at her best friend’s wedding.
“I had loads of compliments about the dress,” Julia wrote to us, “in fact, never had so many in my life!!”

Beth Ditto strutted her stuff big-time at the recent Cannes Film Festival in France. She is so bold and fearless– a fashion inspiration to all women!
What do you think of her outfits?
Couturier Belva Bodey recently displayed a size 24 gown in her Black Diamond Bridal shop window in downtown Port Angeles in Washington state in the U.S.
It’s not just the chapel-length train, gorgeous peau de soie fabric or Swarovski crystals that have attracted attention…the fact that the dress is plus size has pleased many passers by.
Bodey feels that larger-size gowns deserve as much ooh-ing and ahh-ing as the standard sample sizes. So she borrowed this gown– which she herself designed– from its former bride in order to display diversity.
“Everybody’s beautiful, especially brides,” Bodey told reporter Diane Urbani de la Paz from The Peninsula Daily News. “They’re starting a new life; I think that is very beautiful.”
