Are you ready? Full Figured Fashion Week is around the corner!

The second annual Full Figured Fashion Week is quickly and so fashionably approaching.  Between deciding what in the world to wear, where to stay, and what to do, the most important question I have to ask you is:


No for reals!

Have you got your tickets? Events are almost sold out- especially with the VIP tickets to the finale all sold out, what are you going to do?  Last year, everyone waited till the last minute, when it was all sold out! So what are you waiting for?

To help you out, here is what is going on:

Healthy Curves for Life – A Panel Discussion

8AM – 9:30AM

Many of us, at one point or another, have come face to face with the challenges of keeping our curvy bodies healthy.  The misconception that curvy somehow equates to unhealthy is a myth that needs to be clarified.

The Voluptuous Woman Company, Inc® presents “The PLUS Side of Business”

10AM – 12PM

The PLUS Side of Business includes a panel of business owners who will share their experiences of running successful businesses that service the plus size woman/man.

New and Aspiring Models Panel Discussion/Seminar

1PM – 3PM

The fashion industry has in general frowned upon the idea of the “plus sized” model, preferring to holding steadfastly to the antiquated belief that fashion begins at a size Zero and ends at a size 6.  These days with a shaky economy, 2/3’s of the world’s population wearing a size 14 or larger and growing rapidly by the minute and with February 2010 marking the official end of NY’s Fashion Week at Bryant Park, Seventh Avenue has begun to rethink the notion of the Plus Sized Model in print and on the runway.  So what does this mean for YOU the aspiring plus sized model you ask?  It means that a completely new WEALTH of possibilities can open up for you to take advantage of if you are willing to learn how to “play the game” called Fashion!
