Bringing contemporary, designer clothing to the plus-size market, Monif C. breaks the fashion industry’s tiny mold

NEW YORK, NY – September 12, 2005 – New York’s Fashion Week marks the debut of the most-anticipated plus size designer fashion line, Monif C. Plus Sizes, with two major fashion events. Today, September 12, 2005, Monif C. unveils its e-commerce
website featuring the “Brown Sugar” collection—a contemporary collection of flirty skirts, sexy dresses and sophisticated tops for the plus-sized woman. In addition to being sold online at and, the collection will also be sold in specialty boutiques across the country such as Greenlife Boutique in New York’s East Village and Vive La
Femme in Chicago.

The designs of Monif C. will be featured September 16, 2005 at her New York Fashion Week Launch Party. Held the last day of New York’s Fashion Week, the event will feature a fashion show showcasing the “Brown Sugar” Fall Collection, the “Glitter Bay” Holiday Collection and a preview of the Spring 2006 Collection. The launch party will take place at SHOW Nightclub located at 135 West 41st Street directly
across the street from the Fashion Week tents from 6 – 10pm and is sponsored by SPANX by Sara Blakely. Models will take the stage with several SPANX hosiery product styles serving as a foundation under the Monif C. collection. All SPANX hosiery and shapewear products are designed by women and help ladies of all sizes look and feel
their best in their clothing. The Glamazons, New York’s Plus Size Burlesque Troupe will co-host the event and perform. This exciting fashion launch is open to the public with RSVP by visiting

During the September 16th Launch Party, guests will have the opportunity to meet Monif Clarke, the creator of Monif C. Plus Sizes. Designer Monif Clarke created Monif C. as a result of her own frustrations with the fashion industry’s view of the plus-size market. “There is a new perspective amongst plus size women that says I
can be sophisticated, sexy, and I want to show off my curves. I wanted to create plus size clothing that even “skinny” women would want to buy.” And this is not just “skinny” clothing sized up, Monif C. clothing is true designer ready-to-wear fashion that just happens to be styled and designed for plus size women. Who says plus size
can't be sexy, luxurious, and feminine? Amazingly, even though Monif C. hasn’t launched it, the line has already received media exposure from TLC’s What Not to Wear, Glamour Magazine, and celebrities like Sherry Shepherd (“Beauty Shop”, “Everybody Loves Raymond”) are already huge fans of the line. Her designs are heavily inspired by her love of the Caribbean, the glamour of New York City nightlife, and
European couture. Monif C. offers a fresh and unique interpretation of well-priced style for plus size women.

About the company:

Co-owned by
mother/daughter team, Monif and Elaine Clarke, Monif C. was conceived to reaffirm every woman’s desire for an inspired life, luxury, and unadulterated sex appeal. Visit as she brings a “Casual Sense Of Couture” to the plus-size market.
