Face of Yours. The campaign that is set to embrace, inspire and empower plus size women everywhere.
In June we launched the competition to both you, our customers, and to our store colleagues too. The reaction was incredible and we had over 1,500 entries from women all over the country.
The women you see below are our 14 winners. These are the women that have been picked by you and by us to represent you as customers and us as a brand.
Bravely stepping into the studio and in front of the camera, some for the first time ever, our girls took part in the first Face of Yours shoot of 2019.
You might have seen some behind the scenes on our social platforms; but since you’re going to be seeing a lot more of them, we would like to introduce you to each one individually!
