New York, New York (PRWEB) May 28, 2013
Celebrating its fifth year of fabulous fashion, Full Figured Fashion Week® has become the gold standard for plus size fashion events. Created by DeVoe Signature Events and presented by Sonsi®, this special week of empowerment throws an unparalleled plus size curve to New York City, June 17-22, 2013. From its beginning in 2009 as a series of small events and a single fashion show for curvy women, Full Figured Fashion Week has grown into an international event attracting attention and admiration from all over the world. Every specially designed event celebrates and empowers not only plus size women, but also the plus size fashion industry. Established retailers and independent designers are showcased as well as honored with a coveted industry awards ceremony to cap off a wonderful week of fashion, friendship and fun.
Once an overlooked segment of the fashion industry, plus sizes are becoming more mainstream due in part to DeVoe Signature Events, a pioneer in the movement, creating unique events tailored to the plus size fashion community that reinforce that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. That notion is being embraced by fashion leaders and full figured fashionistas everywhere, adding to the success of Full Figured Fashion Week.
For the fourth consecutive year, plus size shopping mecca Sonsi, which features hundreds of brands that cater to women sizes 12 and up, is the presenting sponsor of the event. “We’ve partnered with plus size icon Reah Norman to curate a collection of “wear now” trends inspired by today’s plus size stars and we can’t wait to reveal it at the Full Figured Fashion Week runway show,” said Kristin Mongello, Director of e-commerce at Sonsi.com.
Lane Bryant® celebrates its fourth year of sponsorship and Chief Marketing Officer Liz Crystal is excited to be a part of this great milestone. “As the nation's leader in full figured fashion, Lane Bryant is proud to once again sponsor Full Figured Fashion Week and we look forward to all the events celebrating beautiful women everywhere.”
According to Gwen DeVoe, CEO and Founder of DeVoe Signature Events, and Creator and Executive Producer of Full Figured Fashion Week, it makes perfect sense to celebrate the evolution of full figured fashion in New York City, long considered the mecca for U.S. fashion.
