ON WOMEN IN THE FASHION INDUSTRY MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Nancy Herkul will be the first to admit that she likes the ‘finer things’ in life. She likes 5 stars, designer labels, quality and luxury goods. It is one of the reasons, that she created Curvezz. With a passion for fashion and quality, Nancy found herself constantly having to buy garments and have them altered to suit her figure. The one thing that keeps resonating when I speak with Nancy is her commitment to the empowerment of women, a subject which is also close to my heart. Providing women with beautiful choices in fashion is just another way that Nancy can contribute to women feeling and looking beautiful. We all know that confidence and self esteem, is something that comes from within, but how we look on the outside, can directly effect the way we feel on the inside. Being larger in size does not diminish our brains, fashion sense or our bank balance and we are relying on the talent and determination of women such as Nancy to treat us with respect and care and keep providing us with choices.
With her first Collection released and ‘on sale’, Nancy has only just begun to set out to do what she started. She has many exciting plans for Curvezz and for other projects that she has in her sights. Nancy is working towards having a ’one stop’ online store where you will be able to buy everything from the perfect dress, shoes, bag and accessories.
I have a soft spot for women, like Nancy, who are working ’solo’ and are very much hands on in every aspect of the business whilst running other businesses, a household and looking after her family. Cattura Vanity Magazine will be watching and waiting to see what this amazing, inspiring, determined woman comes up with next. BY EVIE FOSTER.
