OneStopPlus.com is bringing “the first ever plus-size-only runway show“ to the NY Fashion Week. Part of me is excited about this news but at the same time the plus-only part bugs me though I like the theme which is themed Belle Epoque, the Golden Age plus-size fashion
Before you guys hang my up by my toes for speaking such blasphemy with the segregation of the plus-size during the events and I should just be happy that plus is in the house of an event that has a history of only showcasing size 6 and under models.Â In good conscious I have to state my dream for plus-size fashion is for it to disappear into fashion in general and just be a part of the rest of fashion not be shown in the other room for only plus consumers to view.Â Â That is my opinion, without knowing all the facts.Â Below is part of the press release, if you want to read the rest read Plus-Size to Make Debut in New York Fashion Week With OneStopPlus.com
OneStopPlus.com, a brand under the Redcats USA umbrella and the premiere online destination for curvy women who demand high style in plus size fashion, will produce the first ever plus-size-only runway show during New York Fall Fashion Week. Set for September 15th, 2010 at The Atrium in Frederick P. Rose Hall, home of Jazz at Lincoln Center, famed curvy models will walk the OneStopPlus.com show featuring the latest collections for Spring 2011.
OneStopPlus.com is taking a stand to prove that curvy women are equally as beautiful and as fashionable as their size two counterparts with a plus-size runway show coinciding with the high-fashion shows located at Lincoln Center. The noteworthy event will showcase top trend-driven styles, featured on prominent models such as: Lizzie Miller, and Tocarra Jones, who have been chosen to flaunt their curves down the runway. Emme, the plus-size icon and brand ambassador to OneStopPlus.com, will be hosting the red carpet.
The press release teased me to the point of contacting the public relations company handling the show to find out more. What do you guys think about it?Â When I know more you guys will know more. In the mean time check out OneStopPlus.com
