One of my favorite things about blogging is being in touch with a great community that shares the news of talented new plus size designers.  I love seeing fresh ideas and new perspectives from indie designers, and one of my favorites is Seattle designer Liesl Binx.  Her latest collection has a chic architectural vibe, and I am so excited to see her next one, especially after hearing about what is inspiring her now!

Check out her five faves below, and shop a selection of her designs at Madison Plus.

  1. Favorite recent source of inspiration?  I’ve been really inspired lately by jelly fish and octopi as well as other creatures from under the sea! 
  2. Favorite piece from your latest collection?  The jogger pants! They are SO comfy & stylish. [Editors Note: I love these too!]
  3. Favorite pair of boots/booties? Doc Martens, I wear my basic black pair year round.
  4. Favorite place you’ve visited this year?  Rome, I fell in love with the sounds of traffic and people chatting.
  5. Favorite trend for Spring?  I’m really into the peek-a-boo upper thigh trend for spring. It’s being interpreted so many different ways from sheer lace to mesh cutouts and I’m always surprised when I see a glimpse of thigh.
