Company Joins QVC and HSN’s Talented Group of Entrepreneurs Discovered through The Big Find.

Cenia Paredes, founder of the ready-to-wear fashion brand Cenia ® New York, won judges over during QVC and HSN’s The Big Find product search with her innovative ‘Convi Jean’ denim line and is scheduled to appear on HSN on Thursday, July 2, 2020 at 4pm ET, and again on July 9th and July 16th. Through the nationwide search, which kicked off in June 2019, QVC and HSN discovered some of the most unique and innovative products in beauty, fashion, accessories, and jewelry and are bringing these new discoveries to customers across multiple platforms.

The Convi Jean is a solution-based denim line designed to adjust to all body types. To achieve this, Paredes placed convertible zippered darts at the back of the waist, allowing women to zip or tighten the waistband for a perfect fit, or wear them open to convert to the standard market waist size.

The Convi Jean, which features a high waist cut, also eliminates traditional belt loops and front pocket bags. These combined design elements create a smoothing effect for the abdomen and reduce the possibility of the dreaded denim “love handles.”

Paredes created the line out of her own challenges as a petite, curvy woman who often had to tailor her jeans at the waist so they would fit properly. Realizing that this was a common dilemma among women of all sizes, Paredes, an established, FIT trained designer with a decade old clothing brand of her own, created the Convi Jean to meet the universal needs of women and fill a void in the denim market.

“With the Convi Jean, I wanted to find a solution that would give women the best of both worlds, the ability to tighten their jeans at the waist via zippered darts in the back, but with the flexibility to open the zippers to standard size. In creating the jeans, I sought to make a convertible product that would appeal to curvy women like me, while also considering the broader market. The Convi Jean provides the perfect solution and is intended to be just a great fitting jean for all body types.”

The Convi Jean features:

  • Adjustable zipper waist darts at the back that sit flat on the body with no gap
  • A trendy, high rise design that tucks in the abdomen and allows for downward bending without backside exposure
  • Bagless front pockets that stay smooth over the hip and tummy
  • Soft, stretch fabric in many washes for extreme comfort and easy on and off - 72 % Cotton, 24% Polyester, 2% Viscose and 2% Spandex
