Full Figured Fashion Week was held in New York City during June 16 (Thursday) till June 18, 2011 (Saturday). Three days of shopping, panel discussion, networking, a sunset cruise and a finale runway showcase, exclusively for PLUS SIZE! Executive Producer, Gwen DeVoe, has put the fashion industry on notice: “Plus size women in America want fashionable, well-made clothes. It’s about time the industry starts seriously paying attention to every body type. We have money to spend and we’re happy to give it to the designers and stores who help us celebrate our curves.”
The event will also showcase the fall collections of thirteen designers, boutiques and retailers including Sweetooth Couture, Evie Foster, Jill Alexander Designs, Curvysta, Curvaceous Boutique, Plush Boutique, Vicki Vi, Margaux Couture, La’Dan’s Closet, Queen Grace Collection and Ashaki Charles Designs. “This is a show for every woman,” says DeVoe. “We’re mixing styles, price points and perspectives, and showing aspirational looks alongside fashionable street wear. That’s what we want to offer the women who come out to the events- a mix of fantasy and practicality that will inspire them to seek out the indie designers, boutiques and retailers who understand and appreciate their bodies.”
Fashion show for the full-figured! This is the time every blubbery woman would enjoy. Shopping and meeting new friends plus most of all gaining more confidence this is what it’s all about. Time to tell the world that people are of different shapes. I hope there would be a full figured fashion week in the Philippines. Congrats to FFFweek! More to come!
