Pat yourself on the back, Gwen DeVoe! There’s an event being held in Sao Paulo called the “Fashion Weekend Plus-Size,” and it’s the second time this event has been held this year in Brazil. Inspired by the first Full Figured Fashion Week, event creators have attracted a good deal of press, provided plus models with a great opportunity to walk the runway, and highlighted labels that are selling extended sizing. I have a feeling my “places to shop” list will get a lot longer after July.
Now that I am in Brazil, it will be interesting to watch things unfold. I’m interested in the “desfile,” or runway show, just as much as I am in the plus community down here. “Fashion Weekend Plus-Size” will be held on July 23rd and 24th in Sao Paulo–more to come!
