A Plus Market is a fun filled plus size fashion bazaar.
And Marji & Jean is one that definitely adds to the vibrancy of our events. So we at A Plus Market are chuffed that they are yet again joining us.
We totally love having them along for the ride and thought this next feature we could get to know them and the brand a while lot better. The very lovely Lori, the lady behind Marji & Jean willingly obliged to answer a few questions I put to her….
. Your dresses are so colourful and fun, what draws you to such vibrant fabric?
I love to be surrounded by colour, I think having colour around instantly makes people happier. I love finding unusual fabrics that most people might not consider using for a dress.
Who taught you or how did you learn to sew?
What’s your favourite part of the making dresses and selling them process?
You know when you find that perfect dress that makes you feel amazing every time you wear it? I love being the person that made that dress and made a girl feel special.
What is your favourite fashion era? and why?
I love feminine pretty dresses from the 1950’s, when all women seemed to look gorgeous, but I also love the crazy, quirky fashion from the 1960’s and the fact that women stopped conforming to stereotypes about how they should dress.
What do you love about fashion?
I love that every woman has the opportunity to dress in a way that makes them feel unique and special, and that you can tell a bit about someone’s personality by the way they dress. My worst nightmare would be to live in a world where everyone looked the same.
What are some tips or your favourite ways to style your frocks?
My fifties dresses work really well for either a rockabilly look with pinup hair and cool shoes, or just as a super pretty dress with bare feet and a ponytail (the way I have always dressed!).At the moment in this chilly Melbourne weather, I love to wear all my dresses with boots, tights and a big cardigan.
