WE tv’s ‘House of Curves’ brings the drama on Thursdays with Kenyatta Jones
*“Two of my employees, I wanted them to work together on something and it turned into rivalry,” said Kenyatta Jones, a full size clothes designer whose business, “House of Curves,” is the subject of the new WE tv reality series airing on Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT. “You know there is always drama with women.”
Jones said the idea of finding another plate-form to show that there is a need for full figure designers is also a motivating force behind why she wanted this, “I got laid off…after working in corporate America all my career it came to a point, life changed.”
So she took a leap of faith into designing clothes and it snow balled into what she has today.
“You are differently going to see fashion,” said Jones. “But the main thing I want you to see is fashion in plus size, to love what you see. We had lots of doors closed in our faces.”
Some of those employees featured on “House of Curves” include Kendra, creative director for Belle Rene’ and seamstress Sherlyndia. You will also see celebrities styled on the show, such as LeToya Luckett (Preacher’s Kid).
“We try to use higher end fabric, Kenyatta pointed out about her plus size designs. “We try to imitate what we see and put it in our size – no smaller than a size 10. Plus size bodies you don’t know how the weight is proportioned.”
Jones hopes to one day have her fashions in the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week event, but for now you can see them every Thursday at 9 p.m. on WE tv.
