The Grand Finale for 2009 Full Figured Fashion Week

You missed an amazing event! The 2009 Full Figured Fashion Week ended on an amazing high note. The energy that flowed throughout was contagious as people stepped onto the red carpet, to those who sashayed in their fabulous frocks to attend!

As the biggest self proclaimed fabric and fashion snob- a girl loves her Chloe, Dior, and Marc Jacobs, Full Figured Fashion Week‘s finale brought something different to the scene. You see, all of those designers who I mentioned above, do not cater to my curves, although they fashionably accessorize them, from my jewelry, shoes, and handbags!

What the finale brought was different interpretations of Spring’s casual, evening, party, daytime chic, and artistic to the forefront for the Curvy.Confident.Chic. Fashionista- or those who aspire to be. Now not every piece would I fashion, but I did have some favorites!

I do not remember the designers, but some more favorites!

What is going to be even more exciting, as this is the first for the Full Figured, this fashion week only tipped the iceberg of innovative, edgy, contemporary plus size designers out there! Those in attendance brought it- and brought it to some who did not even know they existed.
