As a plus-size fashion blogger, it is always very interesting when there is an actual fashion week/weekend with focus on plus-size fashion - then everything is aimed at ME! And all other curvy ladies, of course :) I will get so much new inspiration, info on upcoming trends and will be able to spot styles/looks/designs for the curvy woman - that means ME! Instead of seeing size 0-models on the catwalk, I see UK size 14 (US size 12, EU size 42) models showing off their gorgeous curves in trendy fashion! That is amazing!
Last year, I went to Full Figured Fashion Week in New York, which was a true experience for me, so when I discovered the upcoming British Plus-Size Fashion Weekend (LPSFW) February 15th - 16th 2013 - I was excited!!
Unfortunately, as of this moment, I am not planning on going - simply because of poor funds (damn those January sales!). There is still time, I mean, London is actually only 2 hours away, but again - I need some planning to do and win the lottery before I can go!
BONUS INFO: At LPSFW, you can meet fellow plus-size blogger Gaëlle-Vanessa of Les Pitreries de Vanoue at the official swap shop and the lovely Jessica Kane, CEO of Skorch Magazine and also a plus-size blogger at Life & Style of Jessica (she is a member of the official discussion panel).
Maybe I will figure something out, since this is really something I would LOVE to be able to attend, but until then - check out LPSFW website and social media:
