The Curvy CollectiveFull 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…

Yet, not a part of Milan’s Fashion Week. Kind of like One Stop Plus showed in New York during New York Fashion Week, but wasn’t a part of New York Fashion Week. Actually, just like that. In fact, according to many news sources, Miro was knocked off of Milan”s Fashion Week calender.Why is the “fashion world” so afraid of women with real curves and real bodies?
Jason Wu and Ports 1961 stole my heart on day 2 of New York’s Fashion Week. I am in love with these Spring 2011 collections. I didn’t want to bombard you with photos, so I only choose a few. The day was filled with feminine touches, flowing fabric, and abstract prints and cuts. Not bad day 2, let’s see what day 3 brings. Oh, btw…I can totally see most of these pieces on this curvy silhouette! Which collection is your favorite so far?

Day 1 of New York Fashion week has come and gone. I saw a lot of mixing of prints, clean lines, military inspired looks, romantic pieces and bare midriffs? Really? Bare midriffs? Oh well. Here are a “few” of the Spring 2011 pieces I liked. I’m not a professionally paid fashion critic but, I really had to look hard for these! Hopefully, day 2 will be more inspiring.Jen KaoBensoniRuffianVena CavaChristian Sirianoimages: style.com
