Introducing Petite Epoque: Q&A With Designer Leslie Liwanag
One thing I’ve really enjoyed as a blogger is discovering new petite brands. Lately it seems there are a lot more that are starting up now, which I’m really excited about! I’ve always felt that petites have very slim pickings when it comes to clothes specifically designed for them, because not a lot of major brands or stores offer petite sizes.
I’d like to think this new crop of petite brands is arising partly because of all the petite fashion blogs/social accounts drawing attention to our fashion needs. Our online presence and therefore social influence is growing fast. We’re showing the world that we’re a huge market that’s seriously underserved, with the average North American woman being 5’4/164cm (and that’s just one continent).
