Last year, the very first British Plus Size Fashion Weekend (BPLFW) was such a huge success that it’s now become a yearly event!
This year it’s sponsored by Evans, and will feature UK and international plus size designers, plus size models strutting their stuff on four catwalk shows (including bridal wear and swimwear) and an impressive VIP gift lounge.
There will also be a marketplace of great clothes you can buy, and the products will be laid out in departments, categorised by women’s body shapes (pear, apple, hourglass and inverted triangle), and experts will be on hand to help you find clothes that best suit your body type.
Designers being featured at the event, which is being held on 15th Feb in London, include: Simply Be, Dearcurves, Yours, Dea, O’Phee’s, Dynasty, Jane Watson and Syreeta Badu.
The event, which was the biggest UK plus size fashion event ever, was designed by writer of ‘Trapped in a Skinny World‘, Remi Ray, and Evolve Magazine‘s Rianne Ward, because they wanted to ‘‘ENHANCE, EDUCATE, EMPOWER and SUPPORT the UK plus-size industry by connecting the dots between the retailers, designers and consumers”.
I didn’t manage to attend last year’s, but am going to try my hardest to go this year, as it looks fabulous!
