Preview: Beth Ditto for Evans

Two weeks ago I went to my second Gossip concert. Every time I’m blown away by their amazing frontwoman Beth Ditto. She has so much confidence and because she doesn’t give a fuck what people think of her looks, she’s the personification of style. Having refused to perform an in-store gig at Oxford Street’s Topshop due to the stores lack of large sizes, saying “give me the job. I want to design, I want you to make clothes for big girls, big boys,” She’s now doing exactly that – designing a range for UK highstreet retailer, Evans.

There will be sixteen pieces, all very 80’s inspired, including a dice-printed black and white dress (as shown on the picture above, there’s also a limited edition scarf with the same print), a sequin disco inspired sweater dress (picture below), and slouchy tops. There will also be an accessories and shoes collection, containing a cocktail ring with baby pink gems set in yellow gold, a pair of glossy pink spike heels and other items in monochrome colours.

The collection isn’t modelled by Beth, but by a one-off doll of her to to promote her collection. The collection will be in stores on July the 9th . Check www.bethdittoatevans.co.uk.
