If you’re a petite woman that is 5’5″ or under, or a (middle height gal 5’6″ to 5’7″), you already know that finding fabulous petite clothing is not an easy task. Our issues range from; choosing the right fabric prints, pant hems that are too long, big armholes, to the disproportional scaling of skirts and jackets, thus creating fashion faux pas. There are many times while out clothing shopping that it makes us look like we are kids playing dress up in mum’s clothes! 

Bella Petite gets that ‘being a petite woman’ often presents us with challenging obstacles on the fashion front lines.  Incidentally, it is both frustrating and shocking as to why mainstream clothing designers have yet to tackle petite women’s fashion issues, considering we dominate the marketplace buying power.

 “I’m 5’2″ tall with a short torso (98lbs and an hourglass figure type), so shopping has always been difficult to buy off the rack ready-to-wear clothing without extensive alterations.  As your resident expert, petite fashionista and editor-in-chief of Bella Petite Magazine, “early on as a teenager, I grew up wondering why clothing doesn’t fit me right? Also, I did not see models wearing clothing that would fit me. Furthermore neither were fashion rags acknowledging petite women exist, let alone addressing our clothing dilemmas.” 
 
Quite literally, I found myself in the midst of a fashion crisis! Surely, I couldn’t be the only petite woman experiencing these problems. So I embarked on a solution driven mission advocating for the fashion standards to change and along the way, I discovered that millions of likeminded petite women (both fit, curvy and plus-size) were all experiencing the identical issues. 

Based on my personal experiences and armed with consumer awareness I sought out to aggravate a paradigm shift towards diversity in the fashion industry; by building marketplace recognition in media with Bella Petite, creating the first and only magazine fashion covers and editorials using petite models. As well as, having produced over 500 fashion shows, model searches and, pageants to ignite the first and only televised events.
