2018 has been a year of growth, not only for The Curvy Fashionista, but with the plus size fashion industry and community. This year has shown us the launch of a variety of plus size brands and retailers, like CoEdition and 11Honore. Models breaking barriers, like Liris Crosse and Project Runway and Ashley Graham and the Revlon campaign! Mainstream media is catching on to our dopeness, covering the news and trends happening in our community- giving love to the strides we have made.
Acquisitions, investors, and business deals have taken off, with the news of Fashion to Figure, Eloquii, Dia & Co, CoEdition, and Universal Standard- all who have received funds to help push plus size fashion forward. For the business nerds, this is quite an interesting development and something to watch as we enter into 2019.
