Eden Miller is an award winning costume designer and wardrobe stylist, and the designer of Cabiria. Cabiria was born out of a desire to bring whimsy, sensuality and luxury to the plus size world.
She took the name Cabiria from the Oscar® winning 1957 Italian film “Nights of Cabiria” by Federico Fellini. In the film, Franca Marzi plays Wanda, a woman of stature, size, and most importantly, unapologetic, smoldering sexiness. Looking through more mid-century European cinema, Eden found a trend of big, brazen women unafraid of life. Cabiria is dedicated to this attitude of daring audacity. We celebrate women in beautifully made, well cut, modern clothing that shows off their figures.
Our fabrics and workmanship are comparable with high-end labels, and our prices are comparable with better designers in the RTW market. We fill a niche for plus-size women who want high quality clothing, unusual fabrics, and who aren’t afraid to be noticed.
Eden has spent over two decades working as a costume designer and wardrobe stylist, among other roles in the garment industry. She’s also a size 18 – 20, and know how frustrating it can be to want luxurious fabrics and fine craftsmanship, but feel the offerings in the stores simply aren’t right for my age or professional needs. Eden always wanted to walk in the doors of Barneys, and all the chic downtown NY designer’s shops to try on and buy those beautiful pieces, but knew they’d have nothing even approaching a plus size. Because of all this, she bring her years of expertise, high standards and love of beautiful things to Cabiria and to you.
Each fabric is in a limited quantity, which creates exclusivity and cache for our customers. Cabiria is made entirely in the USA, using sumptuous fabrics, ebullient prints and colors, and beautiful craftsmanship. We believe in cutting for the fullness of the plus size figure, ease of movement, considerate details that make you feel good in your clothes, and for long term wearability. Modern classics that have no use for conservative attitudes. We deserve to feel gorgeous!
