Ashley Nell Tipton

Ashley Nell Tipton is Project Runway’s season 14 winner. Since winning the show, the plus-size fashion designer continues to break barriers, and now she’s bringing her expertise to JCPenney.

Ashley took over Greenly Square for a New York Fashion Week experience for all! The go-getter presented her collection three times September 7, using well known plus-size models and influencers.

JCPenney had a braid bar, as well as Sephora to provide ladies with a bold lip. There was a photo booth, too! What a way to let the world know #HereIAm!

As Ashley’s collection went down the runway, you saw horizontal stripes, crop tops, fun prints, and color … you know, all the things “big girls” have been falsely told they don’t look good wearing.

Well, beauties, here is a line that refutes that thought profusely.

Ashley spoke exclusively to our Style & Beauty Editor, Danielle James. “I wanted to go against the grain of what people think should be in the plus-size industry. I want to be the person to fill in the gaps and I think I did that with this collection,” she said.

She definitely did.

Speaking with JCPenney CEO Marvin Ellison, he told HelloBeautiful very matter-of-factly, “We are committed to this.”

JCPenney definitely is with Ashley’s collection, which is offered in 500 stores nationwide. The line goes up to a size 24 in stores and 30 online. I love the range of sizes to encompass all plus-size fabulousness.

#TeamBeautiful can’t wait to see what’s in store for her next capsule collection!
