We make designer dresses for the modern woman, exclusively for sizes 12 to 18. Ava James NYC was founded on a simple premise: why are the most common women’s sizes the most underserved by the fashion industry? We set out to fix that - with elegance and panache. Based in New York City, we are proud to work with local expert dressmakers using the highest quality materials. Together, we create chic and sophisticated dresses that flatter the modern silhouette.
