This past June, one of the biggest events of the year for curvy friendly fashion, designers, and fashionistas happened in NYC. Jam-packed in one week were fashion shows, shopping, runway competition, panel discussions, and parties. The event was the Full Figured Fashion Week ™ New York.

On display in NYC, between June 16-19, 2010, were fashion forward trends in plus sizes from Kiyonna, Just My Size, Pure Energy, LaDan’s Closet, Monif C., Lotis, IGIGI, and many more. DeVoe Signature Events produced this concept for the curvy community (big, tall, plus-size, thick, voluptuous) that enjoys everything related to fashion. Along with the title sponsor, Sonsi®, FFFweek™ partnered with Revlon®, Marshalls®, Evans®, Life Size Radio, Plush Boutique, Skorch Magazine, and others including Daily Venus Diva magazine to showcase quality, fashionable clothing and products developed specifically for the plus size consumer.

Full Figured Fashion Week™ was the event heard around the world. The front page of The New York Times, gave mention before the week was over! Highlights from Vogue Italy, Essence, and The Washington Post, were just a handful of all the press that made FFFweek™ the most talked about fashion news of the summer.

Whatever is your inexcusable reason for missing out in New York, you have another chance to see what all the hype is about at the inaugural Full Figured Fashion Week(end)™ LA. That’s right. FFFweek(end)™ is headed to the West Coast, October 28 – 30, 2010.  Los Angeles fashionistas, plus-size aspiring models, designers, retailers, and consumers will have a fashion-filled 3 day weekend loaded with more shopping events, panel discussions, and a huge fashion show finale with a highly anticipated Masquerade after party!

I, on behalf of The Aspiring Model blog, have been invited by the Curvy Collective to bring you up-to-date coverage from behind the scenes to the front row of the finale runway show. The Curvy Collective, founded by Marie Leggette (TheCurvy Fashionista) and Johara Tucker, is the exclusive media of Full Figured Fashion Week(end)™ Los Angeles. We are a group of selected bloggers granted inside access to the models, designers, and celebrities involved in the event from start to finish. Won’t be able to make it to LA next month? Come back to this blog, and you will not miss a thing! Also, make sure you follow me on Twitter and Facebook to stay informed with all my adventures in LA.

If you will be in Los Angeles a day early, Wednesday, October 27, 2010, join us for Curvy Cocktails in L.A. with the Curvy Collective & L.A. Fatshion Bloggers. Monique of CURVES and CHAOS and Veronica of CidStyle File organized this fun, informal meet-up. All who love ‘fatshion’ should come to the Xbar (inside the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza) and start the weekend off with a party! There will be door prizes sponsored by Torrid.
