FFF if your wondering stands for Full Figured Fashion week, with the dates finalised for the American plus sized catwalk shows commencing on June 16th 2010 in New York City.
Its great that finally plus size designers are finally getting recognised for their creations and a bigger woman is celebrated as well as all the regular fashion weeks that are soon to hit the world.
Being a healthy plus sized person is something that Britain is slowly coming to accept, unlike America where it is celebrated! Come on Blightly, lets catch up and have our own Full Figured Fashion Week, you know we could rock the catwalk as well as the best of them.
Heres a comment taken from Ashley Stewart, the presenter of last years show…
“In America alone, there are 40 million women over size 14, spending $25 billion a year on clothing, or a quarter of all clothing sales, according to American Demographics. So, why isn’t there a Fashion Week event dedicated to showcasing fashions available to the curvy consumer?
There wasn’t…until NOW!
A partnership of independent fashion designers, retailers, event producers, models and plus industry businesses, Full Figured Fashion Week (FFFWeek) was created to increase economic development in the area of plus size fashion design, clothing merchandising and plus modeling. Our goal is to highlight the very best in plus size fashions – both retail and independent designers, while providing an inaugural showcase of talented designers, models, stylists and plus industry businesses that serve the plus size consumer.
It is estimated that this long overdue and highly anticipated three-day fashion extravaganza (June 25-27, 2009) will debut before an audience of over 1500+ plus size fashion enthusiasts, style mavens, models, boutiques, vendors and the media.”
