This weekend I had the pleasure of attending the SOLD OUT District of Curves in Washington, DC. The event is in its third year of bringing full figured fashion to the DC Metropolitan area. As a local resident, it’s hard to find plus size fashion events so I was excited to get the email that my press application was accepted!! The curvy gods parted the morning storm clouds and shined in our favor!
The show was a breathe of fresh air and full of excitement! It was very well organized and the designers showed up and showed out! It was about more than just the clothes; there was showmanship in the presentations and the models oozed confidence and sexy.
They gave us access an hour prior to the crowd, so I was able to spend some time backstage as the makeup artists worked their magic and the ladies prepared to slay the runway!
The halls to the ballroom were lined with vendors selling everything from jewelry and accessories to plus size clothing! I grabbed a ‘Holy Thick’ tshirt from Society Apparel who had an awesome display of graphic tees!
Other guests enjoyed bags from sponsor, Zipcar:
Fashion to Figure
Siobahn Peay Designs
Curvy Chicks Consignment
Honey Suckle Atelier
Savannah Bradshaw Couture
