I wasn’t able to go to the Independent & Retail designers showcases this year (which are THE most important events of FFFWeek) because they conflicted with the Blogging While Brown conference I attended (I was one busy gal last week!). So the Bloomingdales event was the only fashion show I attended during FFFWeek. The designers showcased are labels that are carried in Bloomingdales size department so I wasn’t expecting high concept fashion to come down the runway. There were definitely outfits I liked and could see myself wearing. Here are my favorite looks from the show:
Of course the highlight of my evening was meeting people I admire and respect for the work they do in the plus industry. Women like Madeline Jones (EIC of Plus Model Magazine) are working hard to change negative perceptions of plus size women in the fashion world so we can stopped being ignored and marginalized.
Have a wonderful weekend!
