Lovely Larger Ladies Fashion Event Posted on 25 Nov 20:44 , 0 comments

Rita Sue Clothing had the pleasure of being involved in the Lovely Larger Ladies fashion event organized by Jessica Jo S Closet, and Regina & Peachtree earlier in the month!

Lovely Larger Ladies is an exclusive fashion event that was created to showcase some of New Zealand's plus-size fashion designers and retailers, aiming to broaden fashion choices that are available to fuller figured women across the country!

Rita Sue has been so proud to be a part of this event! We absolutely encourage  women of all shapes & sizes to embrace their bodies & enjoy fashion that makes them feel good.

Thanks to everyone who made the event such a huge success, and to the beautiful ladies who strutted their stuff wearing Rita Sue Clothing on the runway!

Rita Sue Clothing At The Spring Fling Posted on 17 Nov 00:13 , 0 comments

We've certainly been a bunch of busy bees recently! Rita Sue has had the pleasure of being involved in several events over the past few weeks, including the Spring Fling at The Street Food Collective. Hosted by Miss Charlotte Cake and the lovely ladies at The Pie Piper!

It was a perfectly Summery Sunday at The Street Food Collective. Fresh ice cream was being brewed in the kitchens, cool cocktails were flowing, and a delicious range of nibbles were on offer; from fresh tacos to sweet smores! The venue was brightly decorated in red, blue and white, with beautiful potted plants courtesy of Miss Charlotte Cake which were available for guests to take home!

We had a fabulous time at our wee stall - thanks so much to everyone who stopped by to watch our fashion show in the afternoon! Our stunning models did an amazing job of showcasing our Spring favourites by Vanessa Kelly, Zoe Vine, Pinup Girl Clothing, and Collectif! All designs featured are available to purchase.
