Life can get away from us sometimes and before we know it, a few extra pounds find their home on our curvy spots. Other times, a specific part of our bodies seems disproportionate to sizing charts that fit us everywhere else. These scenarios often lead to frustration and insecurity when it’s time to shop for plus size dresses in Australia.
Unbalanced media representations create false paradigms where only the young, slim, and proportionate appear to be accepted. We all come in different shapes and sizes. Kathleen Berney has spent the last 20 years designing and producing creative, trendy, and comfortable women’s clothing for people size S to XXXL right here in Australia. Although our collections are marketed primarily to women in their 40s, 50s, 60s, and 70s these ageless creations are incredibly versatile with designs to complement any body type.
Designer Kathleen Berney started her career as a textile artist with a passion for fabrics. After many gallery exhibits and years teaching batik and textile dying, her fervour evolved into clothing design and then blossomed into the successful women’s clothing line we are today. Kathleen works with the love of creating fashionable clothing that is age-appropriate, easy to wear, and requires low maintenance.
Typically, a cold hand or machine wash followed by a line dry is all that is needed for next day wear. Kathleen works out of her rural studio just outside of Sydney and takes particular pride in all her creations serving as the website catalogue model. Free-flowing cuts help to accentuate a key feature of our plus size women’s dresses – their ability to complement the average wearer. We use easy-to-maintain fabrics that are ideal for travelling as they are comfortable, maintain their shape, and help you pack light thus cutting back on baggage costs.
