Beth Ditto launches her first collection
Today is the day that Beth Ditto launches her very first collection. It was announced on December 2015 with the unveiling of a limited edition tee designed by Beth’s close friend and collaborator Jean Paul Gaultier.
The range illustrates the diversity of Beth‘s fearless fashion journey, from Arkansas punk-rocker altering vintage finds, to fashion icon in her own right. Vibrant op-art prints are realised in silks and rayons, while gold lamé club looks are off-set by vintage-style tea dresses and well-tailored pencil skirts.
The collection, which celebrates beauty at any size, will be comprised of eleven pieces and will be available in US sizes 10 – 24 (UK sizes 14 – 28).

Speaking about her collection Beth said: “I wanted to make pieces to last years. Beyond trends, beyond chain stores. I wanted to create something all its own, something just for us, made with love and consideration. Made ethically in the USA as a small company with no big corporate input. Uncompromising, unapologetic, and timeless. Go-to pieces designed to last. A movement by us, for us.”
The collection will be available in Ireland through BethDitto.com and will also be available at Selfridges in the UK.
