*The Incandescent Clothing Company, formerly known as La Femme Fatale Plus-Size Clothiers, is a size inclusive woman's clothing brand. They rebranded in 2021 on the anniversary of their 2nd year in business. After the company expanded its size offering to include as many woman as possible, owner Warna Downey felt that the brand needed a new feeling an revitalization to mark this major change. Having women being empowered by clothing no matter the number on the tag has always been the company goal. We feel that the new name and branding embody that concept.
