Emma’s blog, Oh, the Places You’ll Go is chock-full of ideas, advice and her experiences as a veteran fashionista. It’s one of our favourites here at the studio.
Emma fell in love with Anna’s check print double silk cowl neck dress.
This is what I would almost classify as THE DRESS of the current collection…When I put it on, it immediately felt good and right and feminine.
… I felt lovely in the double silk fabric and it also made me feel confident and held… That may seem like a funny word, held. But what I mean, is that I felt like this dress was made specifically for me – as opposed to being made for plus-size women, generally. I felt like this dress was literally made to hold on to MY body – it feels unique and special and designed with my curves in mind. That’s amazing and it says loads about how Anna designs.
Emma also felt right at home in the stained glass print digital jersey ¾ sleeve V dress.
I adore the muddied colours and to me, it looks almost like a jewel colour painting that someone has spilled water across. … I put this on and felt sexy. Feminine. READY for the world.
Anna’s jersey material is of such a high quality, it feels soft and supple against the skin. I seriously love this fabric and I think it works so well for my (or your!!) plus sized figure.

We’ve just had an update from our sales and production manager, Darren, who is in New York City showing Anna’s Spring-Summer 2012 collection.
He’s had a little time to see the sites, shop and enjoy the city before his appointments kick in. He sent this photo of him with a super-duper lemon zinger drink at a diner called Big Daddy’s near Union Square.
And, of course, the way Darren has arranged the collection looks amazing!
We love Emma’s blog and her flair for fashion. It’s always fun to read her blog, and to see how she styles garments. It’s also interesting and informative to read her thoughts about what makes the garments work for her figure and what to wear them with.
Emma writes, Many of you are aware of the fact that Anna is my favourite high-end designer and that I love the innovative looks, prints and cuts she gives us – CONSISTENTLY with each new collection …[that she has] specifically worked at creating for our bodies.
Before Anna, I had never really worn tunics, I was unsure of how the shape would work for me, but she does this so well – I ADORE the empire line waist which is nipped in with a little line of elastic, it affords looseness but also shape – the neckline is both flattering and sexy and I love how loose the sleeves are. I could easily kick this up a gear with a thick black belt and some heavier eye makeup…
Next, Emma enjoyed modelling the Navajo feather print digital jersey T-Shirt dress and the “loving” softness of the jersey fabric.
I never wear shapes like this. I’ve mentioned before how I love structure… but I appreciate the detailing here – how a simple belt can afford me structure. … [The fabric] felt soft and lush on my skin; REALLY comfortable and as winter approaches, I can see that it would feel soft and deliciously warming under a coat, with a pair of tights and nice black heels.
Anna’s Autumn-Winter 2011 collection has now taken the U.S. by storm. We love the way the online shop at Saks Fifth Avenue has presented the latest collection.

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.
