My Recap of Full Figured Fashion Week

Good Morning!!

As I'm sure you all know by now Full Figured Fashion Week was a huge success! With coverage from The New York Times, NY Magazine, and Vogue Curvy among so others, folks are finally taking notice of what we've known all along "Curves are In"!


The Panels on Friday were jam-packed - I really appreciate having a day in the midst of all the fashion in which attendees can talk about what's really going on. I think we as a plus-size community realize just how important it is to love the person underneath the clothes, as well as have a better understanding of how designers, retailers are able to cater to us.

For the Finale on Saturday, the vibe was just right. Each designer represented for their line and the models included notables such as Mia Amber, Anansa Sims and Joanne Borgella. New to the finale this year were the Full Figured Fashion Week Awards which recognized the best designer, fit model ,blog, print model, magazine and icons in the industry.
