As a full time model and star of NuVo TV's Curvy Girls, Lornalitz keeps a hectic schedule so I was very happy when she carved out some time to shoot with me while she was in Los Angeles from New York. I invited an amazing team to the set, including designer Ashley Nell Tipton who's designs looked absolutely fabulous on Lorna!
This fashion shoot was picked up by SKORCH magazine and published in the January 2013 issue. Below are the images that appeared in SKORCH in addition to never before seen photos from the same set. To read Lorna's exclusive interview with SKORCH click here:

When Lorna and I scheduled the photo shoot, I knew I wanted Ashley Nell Tipton and her designs to be a part of it. Born and raised in San Diego Ca and at the young age of 21, Ashely is creating amazing and fashionable designs for the plus size woman. By the time she finished her senior year of high school, she had completed her first collection that was inspired by her love for the hippie generation. Years later, upon returning from a trip to Paris and London, she knew that her future collection was going to be inspired by the British street-edge of London. She is currently looking to fill in the gaps that she sees in the full figure market and desires to be THE full figure designer for real women with an edge.
Her collection is a full figure collection for a 20-30-something female that is chic with a street-edge. Women's curves inspired the construction, and her love for color and a fight against the phrase "black is slimming" affected her color choices. Going against the grain, she created a collection that is full of bright hues and bold patterns. The finished product incorporates both boldness and finesse, just like herself.
Ashley has been making strides on trying to bring this to fruition, as she is anxious to release and sell her garments. Over these past couple of months she has been looking into mass producing her collection but asks for your patients, as she believes in delivering quality work.
