Today, the plus size community can boast many great events, although this wasn’t always the case. There are tons of small fashion shows and empowerment events in every state. There are also larger events like: The Golden Confidence Pool Party, The Curvy Con, The TCFStyle Expo and Life Styled Honors. While all these events are without question amazing and popular among individuals in the plus size community and otherwise, none can boast the longevity of Full Figured Fashion Week.
Yes, this year the event known to many as the Oscar’s of the plus size community will celebrate something major! The milestone is one that not many businesses, brands or entrepreneurs have the pleasure of meeting. However, Full Figured Fashion Week is the exception and it will celebrate it’s 10-year anniversary, June 2018.
Now for all of you who know and love the event, you know that this is the time of year when we stalk FFFWeek creator Gwen DeVoe’s social media accounts and the FFFweek website for all the tea on the event. We want dates and locations for the casting tour. We want to know when submissions will begin and end for the face competition. Oh and, we must know when the tickets go on sale.
Speaking of the casting tour, the Mogul Diva and the Original Runway Diva, Sharon Quinn have already made a couple of stops and are on their way to “The A!” You heard correctly, the FFFWeek casting tour is headed to Atlanta Georgia for a weekend of work, play and slay!
I know you want the details, well keep reading because you know I have them!
