Patrick Starrr is a multifaceted beauty mogul, but lately he’s been proving he can do just about anything. Apart from his podcast and makeup brand, ONE/SIZE, Starrr has been busy since the end of 2022 creating two clothing line collaborations with the fashion brand, Fashion to Figure (aka FTF).
“It’s literally so colourful, so sparkly, so me,” he explained in his YouTube channel while introducing the line.
On September 21, 2021, Starrr announced the launch of his first line “Life’s a Party” via YouTube. Fashion to Figure is a plus-sized clothing brand featuring trendy, cost-efficient, and high-quality items. His first 10-piece collection really reflected who he was and was inspired by his own closet.
Starrr also talked about some of his own frustrations with finding clothes that fit him, whether he shopped in stores or online. In fact, he says his mantra “one size fits all” for his makeup brand came from the fact that makeup was the only thing he saw fitting all sizes.

So, when FTF reached out to Starrr about a collab opportunity, he jumped on it. Starrr designed everything, from party dresses to jumpsuits and other pieces.
Starrr’s collection came on the heels of the re-opening of stores and other venues following the months of lockdown due to COVID. It was the perfect opportunity to reach women looking forward to getting dolled up and heading out again, especially for plus-sized women who often had to wait even longer than most for stylish clothes in their sizes to come out.
The energy of the collection was “vibrant, lively, and glamourous.” Two of the pieces from the collection stand out the most: the Twist Front Sequin Blouse and the Make ‘Em Shook Faux Leather Dress.
The bell-sleeved Twist Front Sequin Blouse in bronze is the definition of Starrr’s style and his vision for distilling glamour in everyday wear. His American Music Awards jumpsuit gave him the inspiration for this blouse. Gold is a vibrant, strong colour and, to Starrr, it symbolizes triumph.
Make ’Em Shook dress is a shiny, hot pink pleather dress with red satin lining four buttons at the end of the sleeves, and a wrap-style silhouette. The dress is very fitting and accentuates the curves. When Starrr partied with Kris Jenner, he wore a similar dress that gave him the inspiration for this one. He recommends wearing this bestseller with red lips and pink heels to create a powerful statement look.
Starrr’s second collection “Fierce Comfort” came out in December 2021 for the holiday season, featuring cardigans, sweaters, and gowns.
Starrr wanted to create comfortable clothes that were also fashionable. During the holidays, most clothes are loose fitting and not that stylish. “We’re, like, left with the frumpy pajamas and the sweaters and the sales racks,” Starrr said in his YouTube video while promoting the line.
Of all the outfits, his absolute favourite is A Laidback Vibe Teddie Hoodie and Jogger Pant Set. It’s comfortable and cute enough to wear when going out or staying in. The two-piece is a combination of high-waisted pants and crop top hoodie. Like his other pieces, this set also comes with satin lining. Starrr’s personal favourite is the powder blue colour, but the ivory set has its own vibe.
Starrr’s clothing lets plus-sized women embrace their inner diva, and flaunt their curves and personalities in style. “But what’s even more fun and beautiful is that these are custom-made for all my plus-sized girls out there,” Starrr explained. “Because we have something for us, okay?!”
Mega influencer curvy model, Remi Bader, raved about the Boss Energy Double Breasted Long Coat from Starrr’s holiday collection in a TikTok video. And the stunning Frankie Tavares, an entrepreneur and plus-sized model, took to her TikTok to post a video of herself styled in Starrr’s LFG Snakeskin Print Wrap Dress.
