NY Fashion Week Goes Plus
Finally, plus models will be walking the runway at the famed New York Fashion Week on September 15, 2010.
Plus retailer, One Stop Plus will be producing the first-ever plus size only fashion show to showcase their Spring 2011 collections.
From the OSP press release:
OneStopPlus.com is taking a stand to prove that curvy women are equally as beautiful and as fashionable as their size two counterparts with a plus-size runway show coinciding with the high-fashion shows located at Lincoln Center. The noteworthy event will showcase top trend-driven styles, featured on prominent models such as: Lizzie Miller, and Tocarra Jones, who have been chosen to flaunt their curves down the runway. Emme, the plus-size icon and brand ambassador to OneStopPlus.com, will be hosting the red carpet.
“The recent confluence of events and energy within the plus-size movement makes this the perfect time for OneStopPlus.com to debut at New York Fashion Week,” says Stephanie Sobel, President of OneStopPlus.com. “Top plus-size models like Crystal Renn and Lizzie Miller in Italian Vogue, French Elle, Glamour, Marie Claire, and others, validate that this is the magic moment for plus sizes.”
OneStopPlus.com is a pioneer in the ever-changing fashion industry, proving that the 62% of American Women who are plus-size can also experience the high-fashion lifestyle.
To say that I am excited would be a gross understatement. I wish the ladies well on their inaugural voyage down the world’s greatest runway.
