Over the weekend I had a chance to check out the plus size fashions at Curves Rock Weekend 2013 in Baltimore.
In it’s second year, Curves Rock Weekend was created by Tykesha Reed and Chanell Jones. The two are committed to improving the self-esteem of the curvy community, bringing awareness to healthier lifestyle choices and making styles, trends and fashion that not only caters to the IDEAL size model but also to the woman with CURVES.
I missed the seminars and the Sunday brunch because I could only fit the fashion show into my busy weekend schedule. So I hopped on that stupid a$$ Megabus and I dragged my besties along to check out what was new, hot, and upcoming for us curvy cuties this fall.
The fashion show was four freaking hours. Luckily we were all in stitches as Tionna Smalls and Liris Crosse hosted the show. Still I think if I had of read 7pm-11pm on the ticket before arriving I would have skipped this event.
The runway was filled with fall must-haves from national retailers (Fashion to Figure, Ashley Stewart, and Lane Bryant), to Baltimore-based boutiques shops (Niche Boutique and Real Divas Are Large) to independent designers (Annie Kaufman, Serita Bell, and Shanda Freeman).
I managed to capture a few images in between my excitement (click any image above to start the slideshow) from all of the collections. I am officially over summer and truly ready to trade in my gladiator sandals for a pair of knee-high boots. The one collection that I instantly fell in love with was Shanda Freeman. Her collection is chic, curvy-friendly, and most noticeably SEXY!
Check out a few videos from the collections captured by Curvy CEO.
