LOS ANGELES, CA—Ann Nahari (www.ann-nahari.com), the California-based luxury plus size fashion house, announced today the launch of its lingerie division under the brand name Ann Nahari Intimates. The full figured brand has teamed with famed plus model Christina Mendez as the face of the new division.
As with its ready-to-wear collection, Ann Nahari Intimates is designed by Sumiyyah Rasheed. Originally launched in 2000 under the brand name Full Figure Design, the new lingerie division is a complete revamp and rebrand of the collection for the Ann Nahari woman. “We have upgraded the whole collection with better fit and fabrication,” says Ms. Rasheed. “The new collection reflects both sexiness and comfort with styles that are on trend.”
After testing the collection with a small market in the southern California area to rave reviews, Sumiyyah decided to roll out the lingerie collection, which was designed to complement the ready-to-wear collection for Ann Nahari, which debuted during the September edition of New York Fashion Week.
