Bold Moves : Youtheary Khmer Viva Collection & Brand Expansion Campaign
There is no denying how much I love the Spring season , to me that is when life is alive in everything. The sweet smell in the air, the sounds of the birds, and the hints of warm summer to come. It is indeed a time of rebirth, of new beginning.
Fashion designer Theary Simm doesn’t come short tothis remark , as she ventures a new start through her latest design , the 2014 Spring/SummerYoutheary Khmer Viva Collection which you will find out more about below.
"This VIVA Collection debuts on March 24th ,is a modern twist on the traditional , offering a blend of soft pastels and vivid brights to create a colorful equilibrium of elegance and femininity ."
Sim, who developed her first ready to wear line in 2008 while attending Clark Altanta University says ” she puts her heart and soul into creating more than just a pretty dress, but being a part of making a woman feel beautiful” and I couldn’t agree more with Theary’s statement after seeing the designs above.
However as many of you already know, I enjoy giving a tease of these collections before hand and the responses we got afterwards was tremendous . Some of you even went as far by saying that these pieces are “LIFE IN THE SUMMERTIME" .
Notwithstanding from the above, in a BOLD move, Theary is simultaneously launching a brand expansion campaign on Donald Trump’s www.fundanything.com .This in an effort to continue to create and deliver high quality plus size clothing to a growing market, she is actively seeking the support of the plus community to prove to retailers and merchandisers that curvy women do care about their appearance and are willing to support the designers catering to their desires. The Youtheary Khmer™ campaign offers a number of desireable perks to donors, with the top award being
the opportunity to work with Theary and co-design a signature collection that will carry the donor’s name!
The campaign will launch on March 24th and run for the next 60 days at

It is hard to be a fat girl. No matter how much you tell yourself how sexy, talented, amazing, worthy, fabulous, and genius you are, there is a pretty serious backlash that you are facing – on a minute by minute basis. And, I’ll tell you, I consider myself pretty tough and persistently body positive, but it is not easy to be kick-ass all the time. Especially when someone tells you point blank to your face that you are fat and you need to lose weight or you will… (insert really scary reason here – usually culminating in the fact that you will be fat, alone, and unlovable until you lose some weight).
And I absolutely guarantee that inside every phenomenal kick-ass fat positive role model is the tiniest inkling of doubt and fear, and every once and a while, when you are feeling a little vulnerable, even the toughest, most awesome girl can be tripped up, even if they refuse to admit it. I’ll even go out on a limb and say that I believe this so wholeheartedly – anyone who tells you otherwise is lying. This is not to say that we should just succumb to the cultural standards and get all weak in our knees when someone calls us fat – we will keep fighting and loving ourselves no matter what and becoming role models for other women to follow in our example, BUT there has to be some room for honesty in the equation. And honestly? It is not always easy to be a Body Image Warrior.
So much truth
To clarify: When I call myself fat I own the word. I love the word. I am a fat woman. I love my rolls and curves. I love every jiggle and stretchmark and bouncy-bouncy cushiony-delicious lump. The word is power and beauty and it fills me with glee that I have wrestled it from the grasp of my oppressors and made it, not just neutral, but glorious.
