District of Curves: Your Access Has Been Granted!

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!


Inside, front row chairs were lined with Jon Marc’s National Curves Day swag bags:


Other guests enjoyed bags from sponsor, Zipcar:


In the back of the room, the red carpet was ready for guest to arrive and have their own paparazzi moment!


As guest arrived, our beautiful hostesses graced the red carpet! The Curvy Fashionista and The Kurvy Diva:


They greeted guests and posed for selfies… I made sure to grab one!!


The show was packed with fun and in case you weren’t able to attend, I captured tons of hilarious moments and great fashion! Job well done to all of the designers:
