Hey Girl Hey!
So this week we are in full prep mode to bring you another FANTASTIC TCFStyle Expo, this August! And in addition to having that oh so fabulous panel lineup of celebrity stylist, models, designers, and plus size industry leaders, we talked about earlier this week, this year’s TCFStyle Expo will also feature a diverse marketplace of plus size boutiques and specialty shops (over 40 vendors to be exact) displaying their products designed specifically with YOU, the plus size consumer in mind!
All this right in the middle of Downtown Atlanta! Can you tell how excited about our vendors? Not only do we have vendors who have graciously returned (thank you), we do have quite a few new brands debuting their line and more than a few who are new to the expo this year! We are so pumped to have them and give them their first taste of our community at the TCFStyle Expo!
One of the many special aspects of TCFStyle Expo is getting to know the sponsors and vendors that are working so hard to bring their beautiful pieces to the expo just for you. Our list of plus size fashion and plus friendly vendors and sponsors are just as passionate about bringing you the best as we are, and each has a unique story to tell.
The TCFStyle Expo will feature an amazing array of vendors. Providing a wide variety of exclusive indie designer clothing, handmade jewelry, on trend clothing & even makeup, we are geeked and hyped and honored to have such an amazing selection this year! The selected vendors take a huge pride in our plus size community and their business! Now of course I had to give you the deets and introduce you to a small selection of our vendors coming this year to the 2016 TCFStyle Expo Presented by Ashley Stewart.
