The Boutique plus collection will also feature actual designs from Ashley this fall season in store. Ashley wants to design clothes that aren’t out there for plus size women. Her winning Project Runway collection showed just that. She sent plus size models down the runway in crop tops and sheer lace.635956469544520477-JCPenney-Boutique-Group

The JCPenney boutique+ collection is made up of fun flirty dresses, trendy denim, basic tops, and skirts. When it comes to design inspiration, Ashley says, “A lot of my inspiration is what straight size women wear — why is there a disconnect from what they wear and what we can wear?”
