Curvy Scoop: Marc Jacobs and Plus-size Clothing?

Marc JacobsVia Twitterland the oh-so-fashionable Plus Model Mag tweeted the following: "Marc Jacobs revealed he is to create a plus-sized clothing line... WE can't wait!!!!"

The news came from twitterings posted by the president of the Marc Jacobs label, Robert Duffy, as relayed in the Contact Music blog on September 2, 2011. Jacobs' label is in talks to launch a plus-sized clothing for that extends to women who wear larger than a UK size 14.
Don't go looking for this new plus-size line, which may not be called that since Jacobs or Duffy are not fond of the term, in the next few months. Jacobs implied it may take him a year to get the line underway.
With plus-sizes in his sights, will the rumors of Marc heading up Christian Dior come to life or fizzle out?
Personally I'd much rather see Marc Jacobs venture into plus-size clothing offering a clothing line exclusively for plus-sizes rather than simply extending his misses line a few sizes, as many top tier designers have chosen. Maybe by spring 2013 we will see this line come to life? If so... could it mean the first time a plus-size clothing collection will show in New York?
In my opinion if Jacobs goes through with this idea, it could open up a world of possibilities for the plus-size market for designers, retailers and models. For now, we will just have to wait and see (and hope).
That is the scoop for now, my lovelies.

Stay tuned later this week and throughout the month as I report on four major weeks New York, London, Milan and Paris.

Later lovelies!
