Fashion for a long time was the realm of the sample sized set, it was supposed to be "aspirational". What if you don't aspire to be a size 2, 4, or 6? What if your frame simply would never allow it? Or even be healthy for it?
Many people don't even know it exists though, this year it's June 13-16 in New York City the mecca of fashion. Imagine waking up at the Affina hotel and going down into the luxe white and stone lobby, past the smartly dressed staff you're surrounded by luxury on all sides in Manhattan's midtown area. Then off to runways to fashion designers and shows just for the curvy woman, it's a full figured fashionistas' dream, one this blogger has had since 2009. Though I have yet to go, I can't wait until I do, it has been described by those who've attended as "curvy girl heaven". I'm making it my mission to attend next year.
It's where plus size designers from the mega Lane Bryant and Sonsi all the way to the up and comers like my new favorite Savannah Red all showcase their best stuff. I can't wait to see the new collections the smaller designers come up with but to hold you over until then here are some the choicest pieces from some of the top designers:
|Beautiful yellow peplum dress||Savanah Red|
|Pink shift- Savanah Red|
|Adorable top and shorts Ashley Nell Tipton|
|Amazing pants! Ashley Nell Tipton|
|Queen Grace collection Maxi dress done right!|
|I can't wait to own this piece amazingly well cut!|
