Ashley Nell Tipton, bringing Plus Size to Project Runway

If, like me, you are obsessively watching Project Runway Season 15, you will no doubt have noticed plus size designer Ashley Nell Tipton. She doesn't only stand out for her purple hair and personal style - some of the clothes she creates are amazing. It is wonderful to see a departure from covering up in black; she features eye catching bright colours and prints with silhouettes that flatter curves.

6 designers from Project Runway recently showed at NY fashion week, 4 anonymously so as not to spoil the Project Runway finale. Judging by the gorgeous 'plus size' models we can assume one of these designers must have been Ashley - I am in love with this purple lace number on Jennifer Maitland. Click through to 'Stylish Curves' to see more of her creations.

There are so few designers who cater to larger sizes. Who is your favourite designer/your favourite brand?
