At last, there is a clothing line that fits all shapes and sizes! Day by Zendaya is a new clothing line by the 20-year-old singer and actress Zendaya Coleman. We all may know her from the Disney Channel, but those days are over. She has grown up to be an edgy and sophisticated role model for many young women.
In November 2016, Zendaya released her first clothing line which is both affordable (everything is under $160!) and ranges from US size 2 to 22. Day by Zendaya also provides clothes for men, most of their pieces are unisex. Bonus!
Over the past few years, plus size women have been coming to the forefront in the fashion industry. Campaigns such as #PlusIsEqual and models including Ashley Graham and Philomena Kwoa have been showing the importance of providing clothes not just for your average UK size 10 but for everyone!
Daya by Zendaya prides itself in being diverse, so Buzzfeed decided to take the brand to the test and see if it actually fits all shapes and sizes. The results were pretty much on point but have a look and see what you think…
Zendaya talked about her decision to make her line ‘gender fluid’ and available for all sizes to Buzzfeed when she said:
“That’s just something that I’ve always talked about and preached about and I think you can’t just talk the talk, you gotta walk the walk, especially if it comes from my own clothing line — it would basically be not true to myself. So I think gender fluidity and a wide array of sizes were the most important things for me, to make sure those things were taken care of and a priority.”
In terms of a style or look, the brand doesn’t have one because Zendaya ‘hates trends’ she says :
“We just don’t believe in them, we don’t believe in what’s hot now because you can’t stay on top of all of the constant changes in fashion. It’s just impossible.” You can find streetwear in the mix but the main idea of the line is “piecing things together to make it your own”.
The line is free-spirited and perfect for fashion risk takers. Head over to Daya by Zendaya if this is you!
