Beth Ditto ♥ Jean Paul Gaultier Collaborate on T-shirts for Charity

Beth Ditto ♥ Jean Paul Gaultier Plus Size

It has been a long time since we heard anything from Beth Ditto, but she is back with her fashion pal Jean Paul Gaultier to Collaborate on T-shirts for Charity. The songstress announced this week she was working on her plus-size clothing line! In celebration of this news, Beth has collaborated with longtime friend Jean Paul Gaultier on a limited edition T-shirt. A trompe l’oeil visual play, it features a front and back print of Gaultier’s iconic bullet bra corset on an oversize dress-length T-shirt, with applique adjustable corset laces on the back.

We all know that the plus-sized market is growing and who better than Beth, to break into the market. Having walked the runway for Gaultier and worn a custom gown by the designer at her wedding, the Beth Ditto ♥ Jean Paul Gaultier collaboration felt natural for Beth.

Jean Paul is the most generous, positive person, he truly loves women of all sizes and ages and knows how to make everyone feel gorgeous. I love that this shirt is funny and chic at the same time, like all the best people!

Known for his enthusiastic embrace of nontraditional models in his shows, this piece marks the first time a Gaultier creation will be available up to a size US 30.

Big girls are beautiful and Beth is super beautiful! Long live the beauty with shapes, boobs and bottoms. This is a new concept, a loose fit corset. And Beth fits it perfectly. Gaultier.

Due out this February, Beth’s self-titled collection will feature current styling with a vintage flair. The focus is on vibrant prints and well-tailored pieces, with silks, rayons and embroidery that are frequently missing from plus-size lines. Having gone from a punk-rocker altering Goodwill finds to fit her to being a fashion icon in her own right with a recent turn on Marc Jacobs’ runway, Beth is no stranger to the struggle of plus-sized women to find fashionable clothes that fit. “This line is by us, for us, period. It’s my lifelong dream to get to design real clothes for big people, clothes that are comfortable and cool!”

The Beth Ditto ♥ Jean Paul Gaultier shirt is available exclusively at www.bethditto.com. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Girls Rock Camp Foundation.
