With a little inspiration from my fellow voluptuous diva, Tara Haskins I introduce to you “Full Figured Fashion Week” where the most elite plus-size, curvy, voluptuous models, fashion designers and inspired sponsors gather RIGHT NOW in NYC for a week of fashion. FFF Week, sponsored by Sonsi (www.sonsi.com) is hosted by plus-size model, icon, author, and founder of The Body Image Council (BIC) Emme.
As we all know I love to look into the up and coming designers during fashion weeks worldwide and I picked out a few of my favorites. Well Known and new to the industry, these designers make the full figured woman more beautiful then she already is.
I absolutely love Monif Clarke of Monif C. fashion line because it represents the more glamour and diva side of me. She specializes in contemporary clothing from swimsuits to party dresses. I almost tried to get my sexy bathing suit for Miami from her but things didn’t quite work out, she’s elite!
Qristyl Frazier Designs is from the designer from season 6 of Project Runway, Qristyl Frazier. Her pieces are very tasteful and neatly put together for the sassy career woman. I find her jumpers to very sexy and appealing on full figured women. Her designers were featured on BET Rip the Runway as well as in Essence Magazine.
I appreciate this 2nd annual event specifically for full figured women because I too have worked in the fashion industry through Torrid Clothing and find it such an uplifting community where woman of curves who are stylish and model-esque can come together and celebrate our fabulousity.
