Victoria's Secret: Add Plus Sizes to Your Product Lines

Recently, Victoria’s Secret launched a marketing campaign for their clothing and lingerie lines called “The Perfect Body.” While I believe every company has the right to market however they wish, I also believe all women, including plus size women like me, have perfect bodies and deserve to feel sexy too. That’s why I’m asking Victoria’s Secret to introduce plus sizes to their collections so women like me can wear their products. I love Victoria’s Secret so much that I even have their credit card. My money and my credit are good enough for them, but the fact that I can only buy items like perfume, lotion, and body spray sends the message that my body is not. Every year I watch the Angel fashion show and would love to purchase the items I see on my screen but can’t because Victoria’s Secret doesn’t sell plus sizes. Victoria’s Secret should consider their bottom line when making this decision. There are over 100 million plus size women in the United States and we spent over 17.5 billion dollars on plus size clothing last year. Victoria’s secret already offers larger bra sizes for women with enhanced and naturally bigger breasts; it makes perfect sense to expand their lines so women with larger bodies can also join the club. Please join me by signing my petition asking Victoria’s Secret to introduce plus sizes to at least one of their lines so girls who have a little more "love" can get in on the sexy and feel great about ourselves too.  My point overall, let anyone, any size, walk in and pick something from the drawers.

Zuvaa Inc: Release Designers' Sales Revenue Immediately

On October 16, 2017, Zuvaa.com, a multi-vendor African fashion website with  headquarters based in Atlanta, was shut down after several months of withholding sales revenue from the designers whose Africans fashions were sold on the website. Zuvaa Inc. was founded in 2014 by Kelechi Anyadiegwu, Founder and CEO, and is also led by Adia Dightman, Head of Business Development. Since July 2017, Zuvaa Inc has refused to remit payments to its designers on the now shut-down website and past pop-up sale events, where these designers' items were sold. Reportedly, outstanding payments for sales and stock in Zuvaa's possession may exceed $300K. As a result, Zuvaa has crippled several businesses of these African fashion designers. Meanwhile Kelechi or Adia have failed to provide a definite date for payment.  The business agreement between Zuvaa and designers is that Zuvaa takes 17% commission of online sales and  25% commission of products sold at Zuvaa pop-ups. The rest of the sales revenue (83% for online and 75% for pop-ups) is to be remitted to the seller/fashion designer of the sold items within 14- 30 days after sale. However, it has been over 3 months since the last payment from Zuvaa to the affected designers. Zuvaa CEO, Kelechi Anyadiegwu, claims "Zuvaa needs to care of Zuvaa before we can help [the designers]." An official response from Kelechi (Zuvaa CEO) maintains Zuvaa's refusal to remit sales and also occurred 2 weeks after placing all designers' items for sale on the Zuvaa website at 40% off the retail price for Labor Day weekend in early September 2017. Zuvaa received an estimated 3000 plus orders from that retail weekend alone, and implored its designers to fulfill those orders. However, Zuvaa Inc fully refused to pay designers' their sales revenue from that weekend.  Zuvaa touts itself as a global marketplace for online African fashions, allowing western audiences easy access to authentic or inspired African fashions from designers all around the Diaspora. Zuvaa has been featured in The New York Times, Essence Magazine, Ebony Magazine and Fast Company to name a few. Kelechi Anyadiegwu has been recognized by Forbes Magazine 30 Under 30 in the Retail & E-commerce Category, BET CNN and Voices of America for her contributions. Upon receiving an official demand letter for payment for product sales, Kelechi Anyadiegwu informed designers that she had spent the revenue on her business needs, and wouldn't be able to remit payments at this time.When pressed for more clarification, Kelechi emphasized that it is her business model to spend designers' revenue on her business needs, and that she had spent it all and wouldn’t be able “to help”. Additionally, Kelechi has shared the following:  Zuvaa's current business model is that "all funds Zuvaa receives goes to Zuvaa" Zuvaa Inc is an investment/marketing company. Designers selling on Zuvaa.com agreed to invest our sales revenue with her company, and that any money she lost are investment losses. However, designers never agreed to business terms that forfeit all designer sales revenue to Zuvaa. This is fraud and misappropriation of funds on a massive scale, as she is indebted to every vendor who sold items on her website and at her pop-up shops. These vendors are located in the United States, Africa and across the world. We are Chinero Nnamani YTPshop Sosome Adensecret Udianna Fashion House of Sarah Melange Mode Enagancio Ashanis and many more Help us get our money from Zuvaa. You can reach out to the affected Zuvaa designers here: zuvaavendors@gmail.com Zuvaa's contact for Kelechi (CEO) is kelechi@zuvaa.com and Adia (Head of Business Development) is adia@zuvaa.com For more stories from affected designers, read their stories on social media here Sign and share this petition to help raise awareness of Zuvaa Inc's refusal to pay designers their sales revenue. Help designers' get their money!
