Beth Ditto Brings Edgy Glamour to Plus Size Clothing
Following the success of the Kate Moss range for Top Shop, CEO of Arcadia group Sir Philip Green has launched a collection of plus size clothing with accessories, inspired by the super curvy Gossip front woman Beth Ditto. With a photo campaign by world renowned photographer Rankin, the Beth Ditto range for British plus size fashion brand Evans is inspired by the flamboyant singer's own on and off stage wardrobe using sequins, leather, bright prints and sparkly fabrics.
The Beth Ditto Evans range is much needed. In the UK, before Ditto, finding fashionable plus size clothing was extremely hard and in France it's even more of a challenge, with a distinct lack of specialist stores and ranges. Do not despair! FR2DAY has however managed to locate some Riviera shopping outlets with decent plus size clothing...

Beth Ditto, like many other larger women, regularly shops for clothes in maternity stores. In France, high street shops like Zara, Mango & H&M have maternity ranges in their larger outlets, and department stores such as the Galeries Lafayette and C&A also stock maternity brands. In addition, there are a few specialist independent maternity wear stores on the French Riviera. Here are a couple:
