Inside Full-Figure Fashion Week

With the Essence Music Festival, the Fourth of July celebrations and all of the other happenings over the last weekend, we want to make sure the Black Twitterati gets the details on one other event. On Twitter this morning, we heard from a lot of blogging fashionistas about Full Figure Fashion Week which climbed to a grand finale over the weekend. We invited the Curvy Fashionista a/k/a MarieDenee to tell our tweeps all about it. (More dazzling profiles from the staff coming later this week!)

Take it away, Marie!

Full Figured Fashion Week ended on an amazing high note. The energy that flowed throughout was contagious as people stepped onto the red carpet, to those who sashayed in their fabulous frocks to attend!

As the biggest self proclaimed fabric and fashion snob- a girl loves her Chloe, Dior, and Marc Jacobs, Full Figured Fashion Week’s finale brought something different to the scene… You see, all of those designers who I mentioned above, do not cater to my curves, although they fashionably accessorize them, from my jewelry, shoes, and handbags!

What the finale brought was different interpretations of Spring's casual, evening, party, daytime chic, and artistic to the forefront for the Curvy.Confident.Chic. Fashionista- or those who aspire to be. Now not every piece would I fashion, but I did have some favorites!

What is going to be even more exciting, as this is the first for the Full Figured, this fashion week only tipped the iceberg of innovative, edgy, contemporary plus size designers out there! Those in attendance brought it- and brought it to some who did not even know they existed. What the finale show and the Fashion Week did was make many aware of the fashions that are available and bring attention to those designers out there, a platform to display to the world what they can do for our curves!

Keep it Curvy.Confident.Chic.
