“Where Fashion and Paradise Collide”
Who doesn’t want to experience plus size fashion in paradise? I know I am hyped about this event! This event was birthed by creator Anastasia Rivers, the boutique owner of Kisura’s Fashion. On a search to find a few of the best fashion designers for Kisura’s Fashion inventory, Fashion Link V.I. Fashion Weekend was created to showcase the various talents in the plus size fashion industry.
And Guess What?
May 30th- June 1st, 2014 marks the first year of FVIFW, Anastasia’s vision comes to life after numerous years of planning in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. The Virgin Islands? YES MA’AM!
So What Can You Expect?
Well, in addition to the plus size fashion showcases, there will be a variety of fashion industry related workshops, and size positive entertainment! FVIFW aims to “attract much deserved attention to the beautiful island of St. Croix, while showcasing the brilliant local and national fashion designers involved.”
