Exclusive to navabi, Manon Baptiste is one of our most-loved and best-selling
premium, plus size labels. Launched in 2011, the design team boasts years of
experience dressing plus size women, with the brand renowned for both their
superb quality and perfect fit. Many of the pieces they showcase are made to
order, which means once you have selected and purchased your item it’s created
especially for you.
What makes them special
Love to follow the trends, but also want to know your purchase will last? Look to
Manon Baptiste. They combine fashion focused silhouettes and on-trend details
with beautiful craftsmanship. Their commitment to making plus size clothes
their customers love means that before the start of each season they call on
friends and family to trial each design. If the feedback is overwhelmingly
positive, it gets the Manon Baptiste stamp of approval. If anything gets a thumbs
down it’s either scrapped or taken back to the drawing board.
Made to order
Not many people know this but each season a large selection of Manon Baptiste
styles are made to order. By producing certain styles to meet demand they’re
able to keep waste down to a minimum as only what is purchased is being
produced. It also means they have the ability to react to new trends and
introduce new styles throughout the year, so you can always get your fashion fix.
How does it work exactly? It’s simple really. You select the style you want, we
send your order off to the master makers (that’s what we like to call the team of
people who make the clothes) they do their magic (aka create your piece) and
send your order back to us. Then we check over everything to make sure it’s
perfect, before packaging it up beautifully and shipping it out to you.
The Shape Collection
Manon Baptiste know not all women are 100% confident showing off their
curves, so they created the Shape Collection for those after that extra bit of
support. Cleverly marrying the benefits of shapewear and stylish design, each
item in the range features in-built shaping using expert power mesh that sculpts
and smooths your silhouette. So whether you’re looking to create the illusion of a
flatter tummy or more streamlined hips, these garments are just the ticket to
target specific areas of your body. One big thing that’s important to the design
team when putting together a range is it’s just as stylish and covetable as the
mainline collection. Therefore the same amount of time and consideration is put
into refining each style. This is evident through the choice of striking prints, rich
tones and luxe fabrics.
Supporting and empowering women is an important part of Manon Baptiste’s
ethos. The label recently hooked up with the charity Smart Works to create a
capsule plus size collection to help out-of-work, low-income women back into
the work place. Made up of everything you need to look sleek in the office, think
the perfect V-neck shift dress to the ultimate power trouser suit, it’s a fantastic
edit of 9-5 styles. So how does it benefit Smart Works and the women they help?
Well, it works on a one-for-one basis, every time an item is purchased from the
collection; a Manon Baptiste style is donated to Smart Works. Making fashion
that’s rewarding in more ways that one.
