I had the pleasure of being invited and attending the Plus Model Magazine event that showcased Mynt 1792 on Friday evening here in the city. They showcased some of the updates to the line since Full Figured Fashion Week. I remember seeing the Mynt 1792 line during Full Figured Fashion Week and thinking to myself, “Ummmm. Where’s the rest?” They showed mostly jeans and t-shirts with some other items sprinkled in. I wasn’t really very impressed. I’m glad I went to this showcase, however, because they’ve been doing some additions, and the line has been rounded out a bit. Click “Read More” to see the video and hear my commentary! I also interviewed popular plus size faces like Marie Denee from The Curvy Fashionista and Asia Monet, the newest face of Ashley Stewart to find out what they were wearing!
Here are few highlights and extra photos of the looks that were shown off at the event!
Loving the coated denim that they showed off, for sure. But beyond that, the blazers were key – many of them came in colors that are totally on-trend for fall 2012, as well, like this blue-green jacket.
I found the tuxedo-style pants to be exciting. I’ve seen some tuxedo-style pants at places like Eloquii and at Forever21, but I love this style in particular, and a version done in a really bright blue color.
I’ve loved the idea of a pair of blush pants since I saw Jay from Fatshionable do them so fashionably. Now it looks like I’ll be able to have them from Mynt 1792, as well. They’re going to be selling at Nordstrom, I also learned during the event.
And speaking of pants that haven’t been done before … a pair of gold jeans. Yes. Thank you Mynt 1792 for doing some daring things! We see you!
