Big in Black


With all the plus fashion under the one roof, A Plus Market is one of the best shopping locations about.

The upcoming A Plus Market on Sunday May 27 welcome local retailer Big in Black.


For over 18 years Big In Black have been known as the wonderland for women with a fuller figure and have dressed women of all ages and sizes for their special occasions.

BIB Facebook Banner

Big In Black was founded on the passion of Victoria and her husband Clotaire. They launched their label Big In Black in 2000 in a tiny store in Dandenong, and within a very short time their offering grew to over 20 plus-size labels – it was clear that a larger store was needed and they shortly moved into the existing store in Thomas Street, Dandenong.  Their reputation for understanding the fuller figured customers spread quickly and they were soon drawing customers from not just the local area, but also interstate and overseas clients.

Sadly in 2016 Victoria passed away, leaving a big whole in the hearts of staff and customers alike.

Clotaire and long-time staff members Kelly & Heather have decided the time is ripe to move Big In Black forward with some great changes coming soon.


The team will be hosting a stall at the A Plus market on May 27th.  There will be racks loaded with gorgeous garments – ALL BRAND NEW WITH TAGS in sizes 16-34 – incredible bargains with prices starting at $5 and nothing over $99.  This weekend we will have denim, cosy knits, T-shirts, signature style jackets, resort wear, belts and so much more.  Come down and say hello and grab yourself some amazing deals. 

Mark your diaries, Big In Black will also be hosting a stand at the August market – racks and racks of beautiful special occasion wear in sizes 16-34 – just in time for the Spring Summer special occasion season!

Find Big in Black’s retail store at 131-135 Thomas street, Dandenong Vic 3175, on Facebook here AND at A Plus Market Sunday May 27

Simply Christene


A Plus Market prides itself on offering some great quality handmade original designer wear.

One of our regular stall holders Simply Christene offers just that.

Unique, individual and quirky really sums up Simply Christene’s head designer, Christene, pattern maker and machinists approach to design.  Yes, Simply Christene is a one women show. 

Simplicity is the key. I love to use tailored lines to flatter, accentuate and fit curvy figures not hide.  My love of colour is often not subtle at all.   I enjoy using pattern, distinctive colours and contrasts in many of my designs.”  Simply Christene creates pieces that shine because of their simple, elegant line and fall of fabric. This season is a combination of eclectic pieces for the many hats we wear in the many roles we fill

Winter!  Like a banana or to quote Shrek an Onion.

Layers, lots of gorgeous layers to peel away or add, boots, scarfs, gloves, warm and delicious colours to frighten away the winter blues!

Clothes,  Always a bit of a conundrum.  This year the important question asked was; “What would I like to wear?” and for Christene its about mixing it up. Pieces that are just as easy to wear day to day or to dress up for any occasion.  The  resulting collection is a mix of shirts, tops, tunics and dresses all cut to flatter, for comfort, versatility and a bit of fun using a variety of fabric, all natural perfect for the coming season.

And Colour. Winter is a time to bring out those stronger hues, fiery reds, burning golds, earthy terracottas and comforting greens and naturals.

Each piece is Handcrafted and offers either a distinctive one off item or one of three or four
My biggest pleasure is working one on one with people, experiencing there excitement, anticipation and joy of having a garment fashioned  just for them.”

Come along to A Plus Market Sunday May 27, meet Christene and spoil yourself with some of the best quality handmade plus fashion that you can get.
