The fall is upon us and that means one thing . . . fashion, fashion everywhere! Throughout September and October you are going to find YCS covering a number of really amazing fashion events! One such event is the Curvy Closets Plus Size Fashion Showcase on Saturday October 12, 2013 from 5pm – 10pm.
The Skinny (pun totally intended) on Curvy Closets
What: “The brainchild of Domonique Revere-Lincoln CEO of Empress Lingerie and Blogger Colleen Stovall of shortcurvyfierce.com, this runway show and cocktail reception is becoming a legendary annual fashion craze in the Philadelphia area. [The] goal is to bring the best of plus size fashion to Philadelphia for [an] astonishing one night affair. In addition to having a great showcase and event, [they] are dedicated to donating a portion of the proceeds from our show to 501 (c) 3 non-profit organizations.” (via http://www.curvyclosets.com)
When & Where: Saturday, October 12, 2013 from 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM I Crane Arts, 1400 North American Street, Philadelphia, PA 19122
How much: $40 (purchase tickets: http://curvyclosets2013.eventbrite.com/)
Why we’ll be there: There are a number of reasons that this is a “must attend” event this fall. I am all about any event that celebrates women and their curves! Far too often, unrealistic body images are celebrated in fashion; so I love the fact that Curvy Closets embraces curves – which are a reality for tons of women out there! I also love the charitable tie-in! This year a portion of event proceeds will be donated to Hairless 4 Her Awareness, an organization dedicated to promoting awareness for breast cancer through community outreach and engagement. This a double win in my book because it supports a valuable charity and the charity supports breast cancer awareness, which is near and dear to my heart. Finally, two of my personal faves will be there – the gorgeous Allison McGevna, plus sized model, blogger, and designer will be hosting the festivities and the amazing Aleea Slappy, founder of A Happy Slappy Greeting, Inc., will be the Curvy Correspondent on the Pink Carpet! Bonus: The title sponsor is Plus Model Magazine!
This is really a no brainer – you need to be there!!
