Evans is a women's clothing retailer which was founded in 1971 by manufacturer, Jack Green. Evans sell plus-sized items for ladies, including clothing, lingerie, swimwear, wide fitting shoes and accessories.
A notable occasion in the brand's history is the introduction of a line called 'SeVen' in 1997 which is a more fashion-focussed label aimed at younger women who tend to be more influenced by current trends. This propelled the store into the serious fashion league, competing with other high street plus sized labels. Since taking the leap into the high street fashion world, Evans has had many famous faces front both the brand and campaigns. Helen Teague and comedian Dawn French launched the '1647' range in 1998. Fast forward to 2007 and Crystal Renn became the brand's face as Evans aired its first television advertising campaign.
in 2008, Rock star-turned women's rights activist Beth Ditto took time out from her band, The Gossip, to design her own clothing line. The exclusive 'Beth Ditto at Evans' collection further cemented Evans' style credentials as shoppers flocked and marvelled at the rock-chic and edgy offerings. The line was said to be inspired by vintage clothing and bands such as Blondie, The Slits and the architectural Art Deco period.
Evans don't believe that plus size means you have to compromise on your style, in fact they embrace it. Beautiful accessories and footwear complete the overall shopping experience, with everything from a cosy cardigan to a classic little black dress. Perhaps a casual t-shirt is what you're in need of, or some new boots? Look no further than Evans.
