Fashionista of the Day: Trudi-Ann Herdsman

Women around the world are getting the message that beauty comes in all sizes. Today we're celebrating Trudi-Ann Herdsman, an entrepreneur making waves in Jamaica. Herdsman's clothing store "Kurvity" has been open for just half a year in the town of Saint Andrew. But it is already a hit with scores of full-figure women who had been waiting for someone to fill the void.

Kurvity caters exclusively to plus-size women with designers that previously could only be found abroad. Now, women who wear sizes 10 through 32 can choose from designers like Monif C, AbbyZ, Blue Plate Fashion and Kiyonna.

Herdsman says her mission is to empower more women to embrace their curves. Read more about her in the Jamaican Observer.
