Plus-size model Toccara Jones spoke recently at New Jersey Full Figured Fashion Week about how she persistently pursued a career as a model. As ever, this former America’s Next Top Model contestant is engaging and funny.

She modeled from Anna’s Spring-Summer 2012 collection recently for the Curves in Couture fashion show in London. She was a pleasure to work with and looked fierce!

Workin’ It At the Curves in Couture Fashion Show

Last night, we had a fabulous time at the Curves in Couture Fashion Show at the Tabernacle in Notting Hill, London! It was a charity catwalk show presented by Models of Diversity, featuring plus-size designers and a diverse range of models. Also supported by the British Fashion Council, the event was  a fundraiser for The Advance Centre, a wonderful organisation that helps the families of brain-damaged children.

Anna’s Spring-Summer 2012 White Label collection looked fierce on the catwalk. The models wearing Anna’s upcoming styles included the lovely Robyn Lawley, who recently graced the cover of Italian Vogue and is the face of Anna Scholz’s White Label collection for next season. Also walking was the well-known American model, Toccara Jones, as well as the gorgeous Gina Swire, who you all know from the Anna Scholz website. All the ladies looked amazing.

Here are a few photos from the evening with more to come. Watch this space!
