Growing up I it was normal for me to see older ladies dressed in flowing nightgowns and shoes with the fuzz on them on the weekend. That was just how they lounged around the house. When I saw that Gladys Knight in a partnership with Ashley Stewart had come up with a collection of plus size lingerie it took me back to those days of old.
Taking advantage of the rich jewel tones and animal prints that are popular this fashion season Knightwear is affordable and classic which in my opinion will go over well with women of all ages. The collection debuted at a gala at the Apollo theater back in November and was made available in stores during the holidays.
The relationship with Knight and is a result of the vision of Ashely Stewart parent company Urban Brands. Inc. Following the philosophy of providing clothing to the communities that they serve through the Ashley Stewart Stores Community Foundation and the Black Action Retail Group are also heavily involved in the promotion and marketing of Knightwear in the over 200 Ashely Stewart locations across the country.
My one wish for this collection is that it be made available online for those not lucky enough to be one of the cities that a brick and mortar location is.
