Zizzi's "We Will Rock Your Sexy Curves" Fashion Show at Vega

 Lead singer of The Blue Van is ready to start rehearsals
We love ourselves some rock guys, right? The Blue Van oozes of rock'n'roll!
No make-up and rollers in? No problem! Denise looked flawless even during rehearsals!
Denise rehearsing the shapewear finale with the two male dancer and the band. Sexy doesn't even begin to describe it.
I totally girl-crushed on dutch model Janneke van Opstal, and I fell in love with these dungarees (available February/March 2014). Need.
 Minutes away from the show, and Zizzi was playing a video with backstage footage from earlier that day. So cool!
 Front row seats for me and my girls: blogger Karina of Copenhagen Curves and models Stine Juhl and Line McKay
 The show started with a bang! Zizzi makes awesome jeans, and Denise showed this printed pair off perfectly!
 Ivory made her entrance and showed off her playful (and extremely sexy) side. Get it, girl!
For the next round all the girls had actual candy sprinkles on their lips, and some of them walked with huge lollipops. Really cute touch! As Denise told me backstage before the show: "trust me, that lolly won't have a wrapper once the show begins!", haha! I also loved the shorts with lace details!
If you've got it, flaunt it! And Ivory's sure got it. Zizzi weren't kidding when they promised us the sexiest show ever!
  Next look was sexy party wear, and all the girls carried red roses in their mouths. This picture reminds me of something out of an Opera. So dramatic. 
I absolutely loved this look, and I simply must own those pants! What a bold print, bravo Zizzi!
This dress was so girly and so feminine, I fell in love with it immidiately. Dutch model Tess Evenboer looked gorgeous.
The last look was shapewear with a side of bondage. I adored the hats and masks - it was obvious that all the girls felt really confident and sexy. What made it even better was, that the guys from the band rocked out with them on the runway, while playing genuine rock music. The finale was on fire!
Curves, curves, curves. Zizzi stayed true to their promise: they rocked them sexy curves just right!

Som lovet i går, kommer her et indlæg om selve showet som Zizzi havde arrangeret på Vega, hvor de viste tøj fra den forestående efterårs- og vinterkollektion, samt for foråret 2014. Temaet for showet var "We Will Rock Your Sexy Curves" - og det levede så sandeligt op til titlen! Som nogle af jer ved, er jeg jo butiksmedhjælper i en Zizzi-butik. Derfor vidste jeg i forvejen godt, at Zizzi laver utrolig meget lækkert og moderigtigt tøj, og det var så fedt at se det stylet til perfektion på catwalken. Jeg elsker fx. vores jeans, som Zizzi laver i forskellige pasformer (bl.a Sanna med plads til numse og lår, Nille som er højtaljeret og Sally som er viddere i livet, og perfekt til æbleformede piger, som mig selv). Derfor var det superfedt at se showet starte med lækre jeans, stylet cool med hvide toppe, solbriller og høje hæle. Og da jeg også er KÆMPE fan af vores shapewear (som jeg faktisk selv har gået model i, i butikken et par gange... *host*!), var det helt igennem fantastisk at se modellerne være spændt helt op til lir i finalen: de blev kørt ind på et råt stativ, dansede ned ad catwalken sammen med musikerne fra The Blue Van, som spillede gedigen rockmusik til, og modellerne osede af sex i den bondage-inspirerede styling (et stort applaus skal her lyde til stylisten Christina Wedel). Der var ingen tvivl om, at de i allerhøjeste grad omfavner og rocker deres kurver, og det var befriende at være vidne til. Udover jeans og shapewear, havde Zizzi også lækkert strik, buksedragter, fine kjoler og fede bukser mm. med i showet. Jeg forelskede mig især i de sort/hvid ternede bukser som Ivory May har på på billedet ovenover, et par Zebra-stribede jeans jeg ikke har med i indlægget her, de cool smækbukser som modellen Janneke viser ovenover, og den fede strik som Denise bærer på billedet fra prøverne. Jeg kunne have vist jer hundredvis af billeder, for alle modellerne var superhotte, og stylingen var rigtig fin. Der var noget for enhver smag, og jeg er glad for at Zizzi virkelig viste sig fra sin trendy og ungdommelige side - en side jeg godt vidste at de havde, men som mange andre først har fået øjnene op for nu! Zizzi fik slået godt og grundigt fast, at der er en god grund til at de er førende i plus-size mode, at de er med på beatet og at de vil fortsætte med at designe og producere lækkert, trendy og ikke mindst sexet tøj til den kurvede kvinde. Det var ét styks stolt medarbejder der var på job i søndags, det kan jeg godt love jer for! "Sexy is Curvy" siger Zizzi - Zizzi is Sexy siger jeg!

------------------------------------------

As promised yesterday, here's my post on the Zizzi show itself. They showed clothing from the upcoming fall and winter collection, as well as from spring 2014, and the theme was "We Will Rock Your Sexy Curves" - and it more than lived up to its name! As some of you may know, I actually work part-time in a Zizzi store, so I already knew that Zizzi makes a lot of trendy and fashionable clothes, and it was amazing seeing it styled to perfection on the runway. I love our jeans for instance, as they have different fits (Sanna has room for hips and booty, Nille is highwaisted and Sally is made to fit the apple-shaped woman with a bit more belly, such as myself). That's why I was so excited to see that the show kicked off with focusing on jeans, styled cool with simple white tops, sunglasses and high heels. As I'm also a HUGE fan of our shapewear (I've actually modelled it in our store a few times... *cough*!), I was head over heels for the finale, where the girls were presented up on an iron fence, danced down the runway along with the musicians of The Blue Van, who were blasting authentic rock'n'roll through the speakers, all while the models oozed of sex in the bondage inspired styling (a massive applause to stylist Christina Wedel for this!). There was no doubt that the models truly embraced and rocked their curves, and it was a liberating thing to witness. Besides jeans and shapewear, Zizzi also showcased beautiful knitwear, amazing pants, cute dresses, jumpsuits and more. My absolute favorite pieces were the black/white trousers that Ivory wears above, a pair of Zebra striped jeans that I haven't included here, the awesome dungarees that model Janneke wears above, and the oversized sweater that Denise is wearing in the rehearsal picture. I could've showed you hundreds of pictures, as all the models were extremely hot, and the styling was really good. There was something for everyone in the show, and I'm so pleased that Zizzi showed off their trendy and youthful side - a side that I've always known existed, but that a lot of people are just starting to see now! Zizzi proved that there's a reason that they are a leading plus-size brand, that they are up-to-date on fashion and that they will continue to design and produce great, stylish and not to forget: sexy clothing for the curvy woman. I was one proud employee when I went to work on Sunday, I can tell you that much! Zizzi say that "Sexy is Curvy" - I say Zizzi is Sexy!

  3. Fedt de havde lavet et lidt Victoria's secret inspireret show. Og lækre styles på billederne og fedt at de er blevet mere ungdommelig :-)
    Håber godt nok, at noget af det tøj og det ungdommelig kommer til Århus, for synes det meste af tøjet ligner konetøj. For når min svigermor synes det er rigtig pænt tøj, så står jeg lidt af...

    1. Hej Mia! Nogle gange skal man huske at gå ind i butikken med et åbent sind, og kigge butikken godt igennem. Jeg synes tit jeg hører, at folk kun ser det tøj de forventer at finde (jeg har selv også ældre kunder, der synes vi kun har ungdommelige ting). Zizzi laver tøj til alle aldre og i mange stilarter, og selvom man aldrig vil kunne se sig selv i en hel kollektion, så er der altid styles til det yngre segment også. Vi har desværre ikke altid det samme i butikkerne, men så er det godt at vi også har en webshop på zizzi.dk, som måske kan supplere din lokale butik!
      Kh Rikke :-)
