WhatRUWearing joined 11 Honoré‘ in Chicago – a total game changer in the fashion industry.
A study in 2016 states that the average American woman is a size 16, yet the majority of the fashion world clothes are created for much smaller or a small limited supply. Patrick Herning and Kathryn Retzer quickly saw the struggle women were having and started immediately doing something about it. The two teamed up and created an online shopping platform that serves women with luxury and designer contemporary clothing in sizes 10 to 20.
It was an evening at the Lagham Hotel filled with fancy champagne, treats and of course – stunning clothes. Every current fashion trend laid goregeously on the showroom racks from lace off the shoulder numbers to bell sleeve and embellishments. Each made in high quality fabric of our favorite designers and in rich colors including red and sparkly metallics. It’s a no wonder women are ordering on the site. But it’s not just an online shopping center – it’s more. 11 Honoré will serve as a community platform where women will be able to engage with each other, and include editorial. For smaller brands, 11 Honoré invested in technology and resources to assist smaller luxury brands and new designers in producing their runway collections in sizes 10 – 20 to continue to provide the customer the best curation of product.
“Size inclusive luxury fashion is a white space in the market and for the first time we are providing
runway options for this customer,” Patrick Herning, Co-Founder & CEO. “11 Honoré aims to create a space that honors our customer and celebrates her through inclusivesizing, high-end designer fashion, and an impeccable shopping experience” Kathryn Retzer, CoFounder & Creative Director. Designers who will be available at launch include: Baja East, Brandon Maxwell, Christian Siriano, LaLigne New York, Marchesa, Michael Kors, Monique Lhuillier, Prabal Gurung and Zac Posen among others.
