Singer Busiswa Gqulu, actress Celeste Ntuli and chef Mogau Seshoene have joined plus-size designer Ouma Tema in launching Plus-Fab Bridal.
Speaking to the publication, the celebrity designer said it’s her responsibility to make women feel special.
“It’s my duty to make sure every garment we design gives a curvy woman confidence,” she said.
“And with the new bridal line, we’re making sure women don’t struggle on their wedding day.
“Trying on clothes as a big woman can be stressful because many stores don’t cater for women like us.”
The Tshwane-based designer started her fashion line Plus-Fab in 2011 to celebrate curvaceous women.
“As a plus-size woman I struggled to find fashionable, suitable clothes.
“I started Plus-Fab to design clothes that were sexxy and celebrating all shapes.
“The mission was to challenge stereotype that curves have no place in the fashion industry.”
This month, Ouma celebrates 10 years of making voluptuous women feel special and beautiful. She launches the bridal line using Busiswa, Celeste and chef Mogau.
“We want nothing more than to assist in making women feel comfortable and have the magical bridal experience they deserve.
“As a curvy woman, shopping for the perfect wedding dress can be uncomfortable. These three women, in different shapes and sizes, embody the brand.”
Busiswa said: “I could just picture myself walking down the aisle and feeling like a queen.
“It’s about time African women’s bodies are celebrated. The garments are beautiful and of great quality.”
Celeste said beauty comes in different shapes and sizes.
“I’m glad bigger women no longer have to struggle to look great on their wedding day.”
