I am really really really excited to announce that Gussied Up now carries Allistyle. I met Pam Shainhouse of Allistyle at Full Figure Fashion week in New York last summer. I heard her story about how Allistyle was created. Pam’s daughter, Alli, was diagnosed with cancer. During her treatments, she gained 80 pounds and was frustrated by the lack of fashionable plus size clothing available. She set out to create an affordable, comfortable, fashionable plus size line. Unfortunately Alli lost her battle with cancer in 2006. She was 26. Her mother, Pam, has continued her daughter’s vision and has created a line that her daughter would be proud of!
Allistyle is 100% Canadian. The line is designed in Canada, the fabric is made in Canada and the clothing is manufactured in Canada. The collection is made of out of viscose from bamboo, organic cotton and a little spandex. It feels amazing against the skin and it doesn’t shrink!! I had a chance to try on the line a couple weeks ago when Pam and I reconnected. I did not want to take it off. It really makes you feel and look great.
The collection is already proving to be a customer favourite. I hadn’t even had it out on the floor a day and it was selling like hotcakes. We are extremely excited to team up with Allistyle!!
Here are the styles we currently have in store. (Yes, that is Whitney Thompson of America’s Next Top Model)
