Find out how one woman made it her mission to help plus size women look and feel beautiful for those special occasions in their life. It all started when she had to wipe away the tears from her teenage daughter's face. You see, her daughter could not find a prom dress that worked for her plus size body.
Not only was Phyllis upset about what her daughter had to go through, she was mad. Mad that fashion catered to thin girls and women when the reality is that one in every four high school girls in the U.S. wears a size 12 or larger.
Phyllis Brasch Librach (‘LEE-BROCK”), an award-winning journalist turned entrepreneur, launched a business at an age when many women would retire. Today she runs Sydney’s Closet, headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, leading a Fashion Team that designs and manufactures plus-size special occasion dresses for teens and women to wear to once-in-a-lifetime celebrations. Sydney’s Closet original designs have been worn by women across the USA and around the world and seen on the red carpet on celebrities like KayCee Stroh, Gabourey Sidibe and Phyllis Smith. The specialty apparel company has been featured in O, Oprah Magazine,Seventeen, Teen Prom and seen on the Today Show, Dr. Phil , E! Entertainment and Kelly and Regis.
