So often when we think of designers creating beautiful clothes for us, we never take the time to get to know the journey it took them to design a collection. Designer A’shontay Hubbard of Christian Omeshun posted on her Instagram page a touching message about the journey she took to create her latest collection called “With Love.”
Ashontay wrote: “It feels good to finally be at this place. This year has been a complete roller coaster with a ton of wins and losses. I’ve questioned my purpose, I’ve questioned my gift, I’d even began to question should I continue Christian Omeshun but throughout this entire process I know that my work here isn’t done.”
She goes on further to share why this collection is special to her. It can be difficult to open up about the ups and downs of being a designer, especially when you’re designing plus size clothing. Just a few months ago iconic plus size designer Monif C. announced that she would be taking a break from her namesake line.
So, we salute A’shontay for sharing a snippet of her journey and for deciding to continue with her gift.

Moment of Transparency… It feels good to finally be at this place! The year has been a complete rollercoaster with a ton of wins and losses. I’ve questioned my purpose, I’ve questioned my gift, I’d even began to question should I continue #christianomeshun but through out this entire process I know that my work here isn’t done! I mean it’s true.. “ What doesn’t kill us..makes us stronger”. This collection holds such a special place in my heart because I know how hard I had to fight to get here! Designing is my gift to the world. It’s how I choose to express self love! The garments are bold, energetic, and timeless! Overall I hope that you all see me! New Collection Available this Friday!

One of the best things about the Christian Omeshun collection is that the sizing ranges from a 12/14-30/32. Which is rare for plus size clothing.
