"When I received the Novella Maxi dress from IGIGI I really didn’t anticipate how elegant it was.
I chose to wear it for the finale event for Full Figured Fashion Week®. Being the last event of the week I knew that the dress had to be beautiful, sophisticated, comfortable enough for the 40 min New York transit and would be able to transcend to the after party and drinks later with my sister in Manhattan. That is typically a tall order for most designers, not so for IGIGI.
I paired the Novella Maxi dress with black and crystal earrings, a black crystal cuff and a black and gold statement ring. I wore it until 3am and felt amazing every minute!"
"I attended a 2 day conference called IDVAAC SHELTER POLICY CONFERENCE in Detroit, MI in Semtember, 2013 on culturally specific shelter policies. I knew it was important to dress comfortably to sit through day long meetings. What I wore had to also be sensitive to the cold that typically exists in conference rooms and professional enough to be in the presence of such impressive women!
The graduated color pattern made a natural break at the waist that accentuated my curves perfectly. The 3 quarter length sleeves and the lining that IGIGI dresses always have made the cold in the conference room tolerable. I felt amazing all day!
I received many compliments and questions about where I shop. I need to have some IGIGI business cards with me at all times!
I love IGIGI because I don’t have to ever worry about the fit, the look, the style. I am confident that whatever is made, it is made for me! "
"I wore this dress to Full Figured Fashion Week 2013 in New York. The fit was incredible! The color and print was so vibrant and beautiful. Everyone said, "That has to be IGIGI, "You look great" "what a beautiful color"
Every IGIGI design is a must have! Every dress leaves an impression on everyone that enters the room. And, after all, that is all you ever want!"
"Recently, I attended a fabulous plus model casting in New York presented by the NYC Plus Model Network. Literally hundreds of plus model hopefuls from across the country came to audition in front of a panel of judges. As always at these events it becomes a family reunion-seeing sistas I haven't seen in months and women who I have only seen through facebook. I was so proud of my Detroit chicas who turned it out in front of the panel of judges. I was really proud of all the girls I saw. Everyone had such diverse and defiant styles. I wanted to wear something comfortable and stylish. I also needed a look that would be appropriate for dinner after the event uptown.
I chose the Danette Wrap Dress by IGIGI. I could not have chosen a more appropriate dress. It was so comfortable! In classic IGIGI fashion if flowed effortlessly as I tried to navigate through the sea of beauties, which took some skill. I was surprised to find pockets, making it easy to store my camara and business cards I was collecting. I paired it with copper hoop earrings, copper cuff, brown and gold starburst statement ring and IGIGI Obi belt in black."
