Rock your Frock!

Nov 28 2009 - "Rock Your Frock" Holiday Party

It’s tough to stay confident about your body when we are surrounded by unreal(and heavily photoshopped) images of women. Founder of Lola & Gigi, a Toronto based fashion showroom and weboutique, and Chief Curvy Fashionista, Laura Caravaggio, is fighting for what she believes. Her goal: to try and make women feel great about themselves by providing an environment where they can shop for clothing in their size that fits their shape and their personality.

According to U.S. Census Bureau 62% of the female population wears size 12 + and only 10% of fashion retailers market to the curvaceous woman. How limiting, not to mention frustrating, is that? Lola & Gigi brings stylish clothing to women size 12-24. Laura believes in her brand because it provides women with choices so that they buy what they really love instead of merely what fits, “I believe foremost in the fit, style & quality of the clothing I provide and the uniqueness of the clothing.  I'm always on the lookout for new designers and styles that are not available anywhere else in Canada.”

Aside from Lola & Gigi, Laura is also working on a few other projects, the first being the "Rock Your Frock" Holiday Style Party on Nov 28th at the Old Mill Inn(that’s your cue to mark it down in your calendars!!), featuring vintage-inspired jewelery by Stella & Dot and evening shoes in sizes 10-13 from Barefoot Tess. This (free!) event will help curvy women sparkle from head to toe. “I love putting a woman in the change room with loads of pieces for them to try on and then seeing their faces when they come out in piece after piece of clothing that they love and that fits! I also love it when I suggest something that might not look that interesting on the hanger, but once they try it on they see how fabulous it looks on them.” Laura's rocking the city one frock at a time, come join in on the fun on Nov 28th!
