Designer Adolfo Sanchez to work for Marina Zelner
Sep '11
Marina Zelner, creator of plus-size fashion company, Queen Grace, has announced the appointment of Adolfo Sanchez as the brand's creative director.

"Queen Grace Collection has experienced unprecedented growth in the industry," said Zelner. "We wanted an amazing, high-fashion designer working for the brand that shared our vision of empowering women and celebrating their strengths -- no matter what size. We are thrilled to be working with him."

Sanchez began his journey in the fashion world as a teenager when a group of his friends schooled him on who's who of fashion. Later, he began working retail in large fashion houses such as Gucci and Versace. It wasn't until 2006, however, that he decided to take his creativity and love of fashion and develop a women's ready-to-wear line. After being featured in countless magazines and having the opportunity to work with a variety of people in the industry, Sanchez, 26, has since grown his business into a successful brand that offers collections for women that dare to be strong and different.

Now, he brings his unbelievable talent and raw determination to QGC and the plus-sized industry. "It was an honor to be approached by Queen Grace and given the opportunity of creating modern fashion forward garments for women of all shapes and sizes," said Sanchez. "Working with such an innovative company that empowers women all over the world is a true inspiration."

When it comes to design, Sanchez says most of his inspiration comes from experiences in his life, music, architecture or simply taking in his surroundings and allowing his mind to develop an idea. He also cites designers such as Cristobal Balenciaga, Jean Paul Gaultier, Thierry Mugler and Alexander McQueen as sources of motivation.

Queen Grace Collection, launched by Zelner in 2010, is a high-fashion company that designs exclusively for the contemporary full-figured woman. Queen Grace previewed its debut collection at the 2011 Full Figured Fashion Week. Since then, Zelner and her team have created a buzz in the industry.

The collection offers a variety of sophisticated looks and timeless fashions that are fresh, innovative, elegant, sensual and affordable. Every garment is made in the United States and is constructed from quality, comfortable material and is tailored to flatter the curvy female form. Most of all, every piece in the collection -- from a pencil skirt to an evening gown -- celebrates a woman's freedom, confidence and beauty.
