Beth Ditto to Create "The Ikea" of Plus-Size Clothing?
Not content on just collaborating with Evans, Beth Ditto now wants to create her own plus-size clothing line. Ditto's venture with the high street store encapsulated her eccentric style; the collection consisted of bright prints, 80s shapes and a whole lot of sequins. However, with her own designs, she hopes to make a fair trade range of basic, affordable pieces.
Speaking about the partnership, Ditto says that as the line was produced in India, she didn't have as much creative control as she had hoped. "I really want to do my own line that’s ethically made, and I can do whatever the f*** I want."
Known for calling herself a "fat activist", the Standing In The Way Of Control singer has high hopes for what appears to be only an idea at the moment. "I want to make the IKEA of clothes for fat girls and boys."
With an ambitious plan like that, do you think Ditto is on the right track? Would you buy into a plus-size collection of basics? Let us know in the comments section below.
