Today and tomorrow the first official British Plus-Size Fashion Weekend is set to take place at Shoreditch Town Hall in London. It will feature clothes and swimwear for women sized 44+ EU/12+ UK by 14 designers including Anna Scholz, Simply Be, Syneeta Badu, Carolyn de la Drapiere, London-based label One One Three and more.
Rianne Ward, who runs Evolve Magazine, is organising the event with fashion blogger and plus-size designer Remi Ray. This will be the biggest plus size fashion event that the UK has seen so far. The event is being produced to bring together plus-size brands and the consumers that embrace them. One of the bloggers, who will be there is Nefferth Bernadina from Mode-plus.
Unfortunately I couldn’t be there because of other plans. And yes, I really wanted to meet all the ladies who share the same message and mission and have a chat with them. I am sure there will be more in the future!
There’s another thing… I am pro runways who will show size diversity. I think it would be better to combine these events: London Fashionweek with the plus size movement. And in the future we will see some size diversity on the catwalk during every fashion week.
Good luck today and tomorrow! I am looking forward to hearing all the stories and seeing the pictures!
