Curvy girls with a passion for the feminine silhouette of a 1950s party dress and a taste for wickedly delicious prints are in for a treat. Singer-songwriter Katrina Parker of NBC’s “The Voice” fame has announced the launch of her new sweet tooth influenced, vintage inspired line of plus-size dresses under the Katrina Parker Frocks label.
The focus of Katrina Parker Frocks is to create figure-flattering dresses recalling a 1950s era of girly glamour and coquettish charm, based on Parker’s favorite silhouette—a fitted bodice and full skirt, perfect for moving, singing, dancing and having fun. Each dress is made to order in sizes 0X to 4X and can be shipped anywhere from their Los Angeles headquarters
The first batch of Katrina Parker Frocks is the “Sweets” line, offering candy-themed swing dresses is available in three summery designs, all 100 percent cotton and fully lined.
Inspired by her own love of vintage dresses, and a desire to bring flattering fashions with a sense of humor to other plus size ladies, Parker decided to create the line using prints that are cheeky and a little shameless.
“There’s this idea that plus size women should have a tortured relationship with food, and we think there’s something delightfully subversive about turning that expectation on its head with the Sweets line,” Parker said.
“We love life, we love whimsy, and we really do believe that clothing should be fun; we want the women who wear our dresses to have tons of fun in them.”
Parker is a singer/songwriter who earned fame as a finalist on season 2 of NBC’s “The Voice.” She has since released a fan-funded debut album and performed on national TV for shows like Bravo’s “Millionaire Matchmaker” and Hallmark’s “Home and Family. ” Parker is currently writing a book and planning a new album for 2016.
