The plus size models were the talk of the town at London Fashion Week. And, it’s about time!
We are excited to read that the first Official British Plus-Size Fashion Weekend in Shoreditch, an edgy district in the east of the capital beloved of young hipsters and music fans, went off without a hitch. The event, is sponsored by Trapped in a Skinny World and Evolve Magazine. The two-day event featured discussions, tutorials by bloggers and a final catwalk show featuring established and first-time plus models, who would rather be called “curvy”.
Running simultaneously with British Fashion Week, the plus-size fashion event is certainly sign of good things to come. Rianne Ward, the creative force behind this event said she hopes to emulate Full Figured Fashion Week. “At the end, I hope there won’t be two segregated shows. But for now, we want to give curvy women an option,” said Rianne Ward, one of the organizers of the event and the creator of the online magazine Evolve, a magazine is for curvy women.
