Clothing Designer: Plus1 by Sew Uneek
The inspiration behind Cynthia's Plus1 collection is her mother Lena Sauls who is a very fashionable plus size woman. She grew up watching her mother make clothes, drapes and upholstering furniture while making patterns from old newspapers. Cynthia received her first sewing machine in the 8th grade and never looked back. Cynthia never received any formal training but knew that sewing for plus size women and outerwear was where this informal training lead her to start her own business called Sew Uneek. Where your Uneek style is her business.
Cynthia is so excited to see how the fashion industry is finally recognizing the Plus1 (plus size) woman. She feels that being sexy and sensuous doesn't mean you have to expose the areas of your body that should be left to the imagination but how you carry yourself with style, confidence and grace in the clothes that you wear. The Plus1 woman is confidence that never goes out of style.
