Zaftig is a clothing company for women sizes 10 and above. Help me bring on additional designers to create two other dress options!

Hi everyone!

First, I want to thank you so much for reading this. You are the reason I am here today. I have been passionate about fashion since I learned how to dress myself. Anything you can do to help is greatly appreciated!!

What is Zaftig Clothing? 

Zaftig is a online clothing company for women sizes 10 and up! My vision for the company is to have several designers with different styles who are in charge of their own "genre" of clothing on Zaftig. Essentially, Zaftig will have something for every women that is a size 10 and above. Currently we do not have a limit to our sizing, if you are above a size ten we will accommodate you and your curvaceous bod! :)

Inspiration behind Zaftig:

Being a girl who has never been below a size 12 and standing at 5'11, I have always had problems finding clothing I liked. These days, most of my shopping is done online - perhaps I am biased because of my previous employer - or because it is so convenient and easy to find my size online. Being a curvy blogger, I read complaints from women who want to dress fashion forward but are forced into plus size clothing brands that their mothers wear. 

This Kickstarter project:

With your help and support, I will be able to have three dresses available for you to order. You have seen my dress in the video, but when I reach my goal of $5,000, I will be able to bring the two other designers' dresses to life. Here are the two other sketches!

How I fulfill my orders:

I have a talented group of seamstresses here in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania which is where the first round of these dresses will be made with love.

Rewards:

Besides the three dresses that are available as rewards, another amazing reward is this limited edition print by my good friend Aurora Lady. She made this print specifically for my Kickstarter project, so you can ONLY get this print through this project. NOTE: When you purchase the print ($50), you also get a t-shirt or tote with it!

Some other rewards up for grabs are totes, and/or t-shirts, and some Polaroids taken to show all the steps in my fulfillment process.

Thanks:

I want to take a moment and thank everyone involved with making this project happen. HUGE thank you to my partner in crime, my beloved boyfriend of 5 years, Kevin Holesh.

Thank you to Aurora Lady for making the amazing print for my project! 

Thank you Megan Bowers from Pictory Productions for making this video for me! <3

Last, but not least, my parents and family for supporting me all these years!

Also, thank you to everyone reading this! YOU ROCK!
