"Funding the Future of Plus Size Fashion"

Welcome to the Cultivate Awards


The TCF Cultivate Award is our newest initiative to empower and give back to the community.

The TCF Cultivate Award with founding sponsor, Eloquii is The Curvy Fashionista’s latest program designed to support and nurture the plus size community through an Award program and a finale fashion showcase in May. On the heels of our New Year’s Theme, Elevate, the Cultivate Award is one of the various programs and projects we are launching to assist in the growth of the plus size fashion community and industry. 

As Indie designers (more specifically, Black and Brown Women) are the backbone of the plus size fashion industry, it was imperative to create an innovative and engaging way to support and showcase indie plus size designers.

Leveraging our 12 years of providing plus size fashion news and resources to the community, the TCF Cultivate Award has been created to help nurture and impact the various plus size designers in this space. 

Do you want to support our finalists?

If you would like to be a sponsor, provide prizing, products, or services to our finalists, we are looking for you! 

Please contact Syeeda, to chat about how you can be involved.
