Plus Size (Role) Models

June 14th, 2013 8:00 am


Velvet d’Amour was listed in Huffington Post’s recent feature on who’s dominating the plus size industry right now.

Velvet and her online magazine Volup2 have definitely appeared on our blog a lot lately. She did a very sexy photo shoot with Anna (they are old friends) for the most recent issue of the magazine. Velvet is the Editor, Creator, Art Director and Photographer of Volup2, which invites readers to “revel in their every ‘imperfection’ and celebrate their bodies in their glorious entirety.”

d’Amour first came into the limelight when she flaunted her curves on the runway for Jean Paul Gaultier’s Spring-Summer 2007 show in Paris. Since then, she has continued to be an outspoken advocate for the transformation of the fashion industry into a more inclusive place for people of all shapes and sizes.

In an interview with Frockwriter, d’Amour said, “The true meaning of FASHION in all likelihood it encompasses and revels in Change, in decadence, in obscurity versus ordinary, in risk-taking. While fashion beckons followers and innovation creates fashion, it’s those who deviate from accepted norms who create so much of our fashion from the get go.”

Other fabulous curvy women who were celebrated by HuffPost as inspiring innovators were Saffi Karina (who recently started her own plus model workshop called Curve Project London), retro pin-up model and blogger Tess Munster, and plus model of the moment Jennie Runk.

May 28th, 2013 10:00 am


Gorgeous plus model Clementine Desseaux appears in an edgy beauty feature in the latest issue of Volup2, the online magazine created by Velvet D’Amour (who also is the Editor, Art Director and Photographer).

Few people can rock green lips or blue eyebrows– but Clementine is making it work!

We’re also very pleased to say that Clementine is one of the models for Anna’s Autumn-Winter 2013 Black Label collection. The campaign imagery for that collection was shot in New York city and Clementine braved the biting winds like a trouper!

Stay tuned to annascholz.com for when the Black Label photos become available– we think you’ll love them as much as we do!
