Designer to Watch: RUE 114

I have to admit I have been watching this clothing line.  Rue 114, to me, is Afrocentric meets Victoria Beckham.  The line is extremely tailored with beautiful prints and vibrant colors.  At Rue 114 sizes are offered in all options from a 2 to a 24. Prices range from $120 - $240.  This line really defines Afro Chic.  

"The collection is a homage to and celebration of the female form at all its sizes. Beauty is too mysterious, too coy, too “Saturday night” to be confined to a size 6." ~ from the Rue 114 website

Just from the pictures it looks like the garments are nicely tailored.  I haven't seen any of these pieces in person, so I cannot comment on the quality.  What do you think?

  5. I really like the "Shimmy On Over" skirt. For $140, though, I need them to match the pattern better in the front. I know every skirt will probably be a bit different and it's hard to control the seams when you're mass producing, but the line will be a lot cleaner if the pattern were lined up better.
