Curves on the Catwalk

August 30th, 2010 10:00 am

There definitely seems to be a change in the air.

On September 15, for the first time,  a plus-size-only runway show will take place during New York Fashion Week at Lincoln Center in Manhattan.

The event is being organised by, a popular plus-size clothing website, and will coincide with the other high-fashion shows occurring as part of New York Fall Fashion Week.

Famed curvy models Lizzie Miller, Tocarra Jones and Emme will be among those strutting their stuff on the catwalk.

Zahir Babvani, VP of Design at says that the event is “about inclusion and fashion democracy: fashion risk-taking and empowerment. No more seeing what you can’t have; this is a fashion party that invites and inspires everyone.”

Way to go! How long before all the major designer labels follow suit and include their curvier fans?

Love from Benelux

We have a few fun candids from our friends in the Benelux region.

Here Daphne and Inge double dare you to resist Anna’s double silk leopard print wrap dress! Daphne is our sales agent for the Benelux region and Inge is the owner of the brand new Derousseaux Grande boutique in Belgium. (shop address: Pastoor Steenssensstraat 34b2, Beveren-Waas, Belgium)

It’s fun to see the two different ways of styling the dress.

On the left are two of Daphne’s good friends, Mrs Astrid Geelen and Mrs Kim Hahmann, wearing Anna’s double silk tunic. On the right is Daphne enjoying a sunny day in Anna’s digital spirograph print with a special someone…and crisps!

Thanks for sharing all of your lovely looks, ladies!
