It wasn’t that long ago, just over a week to be precise, that I was at my last plus size event and I am already actively planning my next one!
I’ve only been part of the plus size community as a blogger for 22-23 months, not even two years as yet, and I have attended 3 events so far, and it is so very difficult to put in to words how amazing they are, and how much they are now part of my life, and should be part of yours too! Debz from Wannabe Princess has tried to put it into some context here, and I concur with everything she says about how important these events are, well, to me anyway!
So, with that in mind, the next event on my social calendar is The Curve Fashion Festival on the 26th September in Manchester Central!
The Curve Fashion Festival looks to be a great event, showcasing, in their words the recent cultural shift in attitudes towards body image. They have teamed up with the worlds biggest and best retailers all under one roof to unite women of all shapes and sizes.
This event looks to be filled with everything the fashion conscious plus size person could ask for….. Shopping, catwalks, seminars and meet and greets with some of the most influential people in the plus size industry, with the Face of the Festival being none other than Fluvia Lacerda, and meet and greets with Tess Holliday (nee Munster) and Hayley Hasselhoff to name a few!
I missed out on the meet and greet with Tess last year when she was in the UK, so I am particularly looking forward to this, along with all the other stuff on offer during the day.
Those amongst you interested in catwalks and shopping will not be disappointed…. here are some of the already confirmed brands who will be attending the Festival!
From a bloggers point of view I am also particularly interested in the “Industry Insider Seminars”, of which there will be models, bloggers and fashion designers on hand to give you their experiences within the industry.
So, as you can pretty much see there is something for everyone, and you can get your tickets here, I know you won’t be disappointed.
Will I see you there? Be sure to come and say hello!
