When she got let go from Forever 21, Keisha Holmes could not predict that she would lead a small start-up plus-size clothing into multi-million dollar fashion brand within a two years, but that's exactly what she's done with Curvy Sense. With 25 years of experience in the fashion world spanning from lingerie at Frederick's of Hollywood, to retail at National Stores, and Torrid she wanted to bring her experience and create something, from the ground up, for women that look like her. When a clothing manufacturer she had purchased from in her past position approached her about spearheading a plus size brand and e-commerce company, it seemed that her stars had finally aligned.
A SoCal native, Keisha stumbled in to the fashion realm after a classic summer job in retail. With a new found passion for fashion, she dedicated her life to this industry. After working for other people and executing their visions, she was brought on at Curvy Sense's conception to lead the way in merchandising. For the past two years, she's been committed to providing quality plus size clothes, that are on trend, and affordable - with something for every type of woman.
"It helps to come from the customer’s perspective because I am SHE. When we’re fitting & picking fabrics, it comes from a personal point of view. Making sure things fit in all the right places to accentuate her curves."
What started as a small five-person operation, has become a brand that continues to rapidly grow and expand. When compared to its competitors, the Curvy Sense team is still fairly small, but we're mighty. We work diligently to transform the plus size market and provide women worldwide with trendy, quality, and affordable clothing. With so much accomplished in a mere 2 years of business, it seems the sky's the limits for Keisha Holmes and our team as we strive to put the plus size woman first.
