It is no secret that Skorch Magazine is a huge supporter of our indie fashion labels. Not only are they making a mark in the plus size fashion world, they take the most chances with their editorials and lookbooks. We really believe that Indie Brands set the precedence for what is happening next in plus size fashion. Check out some of our favorites below:
1.) Domino Dollhouse: Doll Parts
This brand never disappoints and is always at the forefront of cool ass fashion. Their latest Doll Parts collection had our jaws on the floor and nostalgia at an all time high. Photographer Nichole Alex and Model Kelsey Olsen are notorious for making some magic happen and they certainly didn’t disappoint with these photos.

2.) Candy-Strike: Beautiful Creatures
Owner Elizabeth has a serious passion for fashion and you can see it through her custom designed pieces. In this latest collection she takes the creatures and makes them beautiful. With gorgeous skater dresses, crop tops, and skater skirts, all of these pieces would look incredible on every type of body. I can’t wait to get my hands on some pieces.

3. Proud Mary Fashion:
We have to admit, we are a bit biased whenever anyone uses Isabel Hendrix as a model (major girl crush) but pair that with some awesome clothing it is a total match made in Heaven. In the latest lookbook from Proud Mary Fashion, we see fun summer colors and very sexy custom pieces. Also, we totally love their body diversity they use on their website.

4.) Cool Gal Blue
This site offers blogger curated collections. So far we have seen some of our favorites offer some majorly hot pieces. I mean what could go wrong when you have Margot Meanie and Darling I Know showcasing and modeling pieces that they picked out and styled. It is like shopping your favorite bloggers closet. I can’t think of anything more diverse than that!

5.) Ready to Stare: Watch the Queen Conquer
Owner Alysse truly is the queen of making sick body chains. With some of her inspiration coming from non traditional places like The Golden Girls, this stylish owner knows how to make it work. Her lookbooks are always on point and make us so happy! In her collections you will see sizes Small to 4X and we love that there is something for all sizes. If you don’t own a chain…you need to.
