So on September 6th 2012 I went to a fantastic event that kicked off Fashion Week called Plus Night Out! I loved this event because it represented all of the curvy, full figured and plus size women!
This event was held at the Yotel Hotel in NYC and the host for this event was Ms. Shanda Freeman the wife of DJ Fat Man Scoop. Ms. Freeman showcased her dresses that are mocked wrapped or caftan in style. The pattern is the famous color blocked which I personally love and it flattering to the fuller figure. Her dresses can compliment and enhance multiple parts of your figure. If your full and busty the mock wrap style and perfect front cut will accentuate this area properly. If you are smaller on the top and fuller in the hip (hint hint like me!) this dress will place accent on your hips for it gives off a full cut with a form fit. No matter where our curves fall these dresses hit your curves just right!
To see Shanda collection go to www.curvysta.com. Her collection can be ordered here.
The other co-host of the night that added to this event was Doria Pagnotta of the reality show Jerselicious. Ms. Doria did a great job of keeping the audience involved!
Skorch Magazine was in attendance conducting a model search along with NFinite form looking for the next full figured model. Many women came out represented well!
Other vendors such as Go 2 Bras who participated in the runway show is an excellent vendor for plus size bras. The price point is excellent, the bras are quality made and the owner Connie Elder is great. Go to wwwgo2bras.com and see her collection of Bras.
Eddy and Bri were also in attendance and I enjoyed their collection of clothes. I liked the fact that the clothes can be mixed and matched for work and after work events as well. I must admit that Eddy and Bri have an excellent price point. The items are affordable for the everyday stay at home mom to the average working woman. Go to www.eddyandbri.com and view their collection!
So there you have my take on Plus Nigh Out for Fashion Week. This was a great event! What was interesting that this was a free event! Yes free folks! Everyone that I spoke to in the room was fantastic but most important gracious. Everyone in the room was passionate about the Pus Size industry and the room was full of confident, curvy, caring women Plus Night out ROCKED! SEE YA NEXT YEAR!
Peace and Blessings to all my full figured sisters
