First of all, thank you for all your patience. Many of you have asked when you could see images from the catalog and photoshoot, and many of you have asked when you can buy the pieces you saw at NYFW in September. Finally, I have the collection ready for you. Now. Today.
For the new collection, Jourdan wears a version of the Stella blouse in Blue Leopard and Black Silk Charmeuse, paired with the Flavia in Giraffe Wool, as previously worn by Victoria in the fashion show.
Maxey wore the Stella blouse in Orange Pebbles and Blue Digital Snakeskin Silk Charmeuse and the Flavia skirt in Atari 8-bit Chevron Brocade for the fashion show. I had Frances wear it for our lookbook.
Maxey wears the Stefania in Blue Gerbera silk crepe de chine with Butternut silk faille trim, as well as a version with no contrast at all.
She also wears the Stefania in Horoscope White Italian merino wool jersey, a super fine gauge knit that insulates the body while being nearly translucent.
And Frances wears the Stefania in Blue Gerbera silk crepe de chine with Taupe Paintbrush silk twill trim with an accent belt.
As well as the Stefania in a Pink Jigsaw silk twill with black silk charmeuse contrast.
In the show, Frances wore a Sofia silk jersey dress in Black and White Wire Fence print, which immediately sold out. For the collection, Frances wears the same Sofia cut in French Apricot silk jersey,
while Jourdan wears the Sofia in Blue Player Piano silk jersey, so named because the pattern reminds me of the punch card paper strips that make automatic vintage pianos play their tunes.
Finally, Mimi wore the Paola maxi dress in a one-of-a-kind fuchsia, brown and orange horizontal stripe. For the collection, Jourdan wears the Paola in a beautiful and soft Jade Green Italian merino wool jersey, with a softer, heavier hand than the Horoscope wool. Each Paola in Jade Green has an individualized lining of fine cotton jersey in a pattern different from any other Paola out there. A secret pleasure for the wearer.
I hope very much that you get the chance to touch and wear these garments soon. Currently, Bombshell in St. Paul, MN and Boutique Larrieux in Milwaukee, WI have their Campo Dei Fiori collection pieces in stock. MS.SVG in London, UK will have them starting in January, and Madison Plus Select has several pieces online for worldwide shipping. Additionally, AbbeyPost had a special exclusive run of the Stefania dress made just for them in Gold Leopard and Black Hashmark, and Gwynnie Bee has a large selection of sizes of the Stefania in Pink Jigsaw only for their subscribers.
I am always looking for new retailers and new ways to get Cabiria to my customers, because the differences in quality are best communicated through personal experience. I will be going to the Curvy-Is-Sexy trade show in Berlin in January to introduce the brand into the European Continental marketplace, and I'm happy to reach out personally to store owners where you shop.
Also, I'm always open to listen to what customers are really clamoring for in the marketplace. As long as it is a cut and quality level that fit in with the Cabiria brand, I see no reason to ignore the collective expertise of so many plus size shoppers out there. Cabiria was started to provide a choice!
One happy, beautiful, confident customer at a time. That's how Cabiria is going to become a premier brand for discerning women all over the world.
Happy holidays everyone, and please shop the collection while it lasts!
All the best, Eden
