FFFWeek™ Fashion Front Spotlight: “2011 Plus Designer of the Year, The Monif C. Summer Collection”
I was just on Monif C.’s website searching for an item for a client when I noticed her new collection had dropped. I believe these items are only available for pre-order now but Monif C. is doing it up again. The whole collection is right on trend and I’m feeling a 70’s vibe all the way with the jumpsuits, sequins and puff sleeves. I see why Monif C. has won the 2011 Full Figured Fashion Week™ “Plus Designer of the Year Award”. Congrats to her!!!
