Event Coverage: Philly Small Business Fashion Week 2016 Full Figured Fashion Show

Wearing the awesome "Bloom Maxi Dress" from Pop Up Plus NY

My second show during Philly Small Business Fashion Week was the Full Figured Fashion Show presented by Queen Size Magazine. The evening showcased items from several local & regional boutiques and designers. Ms. Tawana Blassingame, CEO & EIC of Queen Size Magazine and plus model Natalie Dawn were the hosts for the evening. The event was held at Ivben Studios 3, the new art studio and facility of famed local artist Ivben Taqiy.

The showcase was replete with ready to wear items for all occasions. The room was filled with big beautiful ladies (aka big "bella donnas") both on the runway and in the audience. I believe the more full figured/plus size women see ourselves represented on the runway, in print, on the screen or on the street, the more we realize that we are indeed everywhere. And not hiding in the shadows waiting for permission to slay...but slaying all day every day!

Here's a taste of some of the looks that walked the runway during the show.
