|The Curvy Collective|
Full Figured Fashion Week(end)™ ended with a fatshionable bang last night! Not only did everyone look amazing! But, it was a little surreal. There I was sitting in a room with people who love fatshion as much as I do. With beautiful women of all shapes and sizes on the runway and people cheering them on as they strutted their stuff. It was so inspiring and outrageously fun!
Before I go on, I want to thank the “oh so chic” Gwen DeVoe and Marie (The Curvy Fashionista), for including me in “The Curvy Collective.” I am honored.
Last nights runway finale showcased the best in the plus size biz. They were Abundance Plus Size Boutique, Chan.Nel Karama, LTD., Forever 21+, Hips and Curves, IGIGI By Yuliya Raquel, Jill Alexander Designs, Kiyonna, Lane Bryant, Plush Boutique, Sassi Rebel Clothing, Sealed with a Kiss, SONSI, and Youtheary Khmer. The fashion was unreal! I included a few pics below of the night. I am going to do a recap in the next few days that will include ALL of the photos I took. In the meantime, enjoy.
We came, we discussed, and we conquered! If there was ever a more productive and powerful day, it had to be yesterday at the Full Figured Fashion Week(end)™ Panel & Discussions. I unfortunately missed the first session “The Voluptuous Woman Company, Inc® presents “The PLUS Side of Business”, but I did make it to the “New and Aspiring Models Panel Discussion/Seminar” and “The State of the Curvy Community.” I learned a lot from the top people in the “curvy” business! Here are a few photos from yesterday.
There’s still time to attend tonight’s finale and runway show! You can’t buy them online, but they are available at the door, but it’s CASH ONLY! Visit www.FFFWeek.com for details!
Full Figured Fashion Week(end)™ officially started last night with a cocktail reception and “Curves for a Cure” fundraiser. It was an amazing night for an amazing cause! I am a strong supporter of Breast Cancer Awarness, since it has unfortunately touched my family. The event was hosted by the fabulous Gwen DeVoe, talented songstress Kelly Price, and 102.3’s Lon McQ. All proceeds went to the L.A. Komen for a Cure Foundation.
This was also a chance for all the bloggers to meet up. It was great seeing all of these beautiful faces in one place. There was even a Sonsi Photo Booth we were all playing with. I will post those pics later! It was too much fun. I finally wore my City Chic top (gifted by City Chic) out with a pair of black skinny jeans and Jessica Simpson open toe platform pumps. I was bringing the bling last night! Don’t forget, you can still purchase tickets to Saturday’s Finale Event! Go Here!!
Stay tuned for pics and recap from today’s panel sessions. You can follow me on twitter @CurvesandChaos where I will be tweeting live!
I am beyond excited for Full Figured Fashion Week(end)™ ! I am officially counting down to one of the hottest fashion events for the curvy woman!
