Full Figured and Fabulous: Tennille White Chicago

This weekend I caught an episode of BET’s Rip The Runway and was blown away by the creations of a designer named Tennille White. While there were awesome looks coming down the runway throughout the entire show, what caught my eye with Tennille was that he fashions were for the full figured woman. Vibrant colors, flattering material, and eye-catching patterns all graced her line, and showcased a variety of looks for spring and summer.

Born and raised in Chicago, Tennille discovered her talent for fashion in a high school fashion design class. She attended the International Academy of Design and Technology, and after college anticipated moving to New York to begin her professional career. Unfortunately, she suffered an injury that required eight months of physical therapy and rehabilitation. However, this setback didn’t stop Tennille. She decided to stay in Chicago and set the fashion industry ablaze in her hometown.

In 2004 she launched her clothing label, Tennille White Chicago, and has not looked back. Tennille is not only a gifted designer but has a knack for sewing, and found her niche for creating clothing for women size 12 and up. Her designs are dest described as luxurious, comfortable, and bold, and exude confidence in the women that wear them.
