Out & About; More Plus-Size Fashion Week Fun!

As I previously mentioned, I had the priviledge of attending several FFFWeek events with the lovely Tamara Walker of The Curvy Socialite. Thursday found me at “Curves, Connections & Cocktails” at District 36 . It was sponsored by Catherines, an “an extraordinary online space designed to give you a voice, celebrate the individual, and connect in the spirit of community”. They had a fun step-and-repeat where curvy fashionistas got a chance to showcase their fave personality traits. You can guess which one I chose!

Did you REALLY think I’d pick something else?

The girls were killing it with the summer fashion looks at the event. I had a hard time picking my ‘look of the evening’- that is until Domonique Revere of Empress Lingerie came and shut it DOWN with this red jumpsuit!  I am in love.

Friday was the “Indie Designers Showcase” at the Broad Street Ballroom, and I had the pleasure of seeing my girl Asia Monet do her thing on the runway! It was an expertly produced event and even had a few celebrities in attendance- I sat behind Faith Evans and Syleena Johnson! Fab!

Obviously that is not Asia. But I respect the designers, so you get the runway!

What I really loved most about my FFFWeek experience was not the fashion or the hob-nobing, but the sisterhood. It was everything that fashion week is not; inclusive, supportive, it promoted comeraderie & sisterhood, there was nary a catty girl in sight- and I left feeling better than when I entered. I applaud FFFW creator Gwen DeVoe for what she has built over the last five years, and wish her every bit of success. If only all fashion could be like this!
