FFFWeek™ Fashion Front Spotlight: Designer’s La’Tresa Harper and Danyelle Freeland of “La’ Dan’s Closet”
I’ve featured the designer’s La’Tresa Harper and Danyelle Freeland of LaDan’s Closet on my blog before, but today they are my featured spotlight for FFFWeek™. La’Dan’s Closet designs will be featured during the finale show at FFFWeek™. Danyelle Freeland, maternal granddaughter of a self- taught designer and seamstress & paternal granddaughter of a fashion “DIVA”, realized early on that shopping for the clothes she desired was very difficult. She would piece together items but was really never satisfied with what was in her closet. Latresa Harper struggled with the same dilemma. Growing up with nothing for kids or teens her size to wear, and admiring the trendy styles that her peers were wearing, she decided that it was up to her to make a change. She wanted to create what she felt was glamorous for the plus sized women. After over 20 years of friendship, nature took it’s course .
Designers Latresa and Danyelle have a keen sense of what’s ”HOT” and what’s “NOT”. They set out to create a line that’s fashion forward, trendy, and of high quality. Incorporating LA’Tresa and DANyelle in 2009, “La’Dan’s Closet” was born. La’Dan’s Closet will debut their new collection on June 18, 2011 during “Full Figured Fashion Week™” (http://fffweek.com)
I first was introduced to the plus-size coat line “La Dan’s Closet” a year or so ago over on Myspace. I was instantly intrigued by their very stylish capes and coats for the curvy woman.
