This past Thursday, the Lollipop Princess and I attended the Spring Fashion Show at Macy's Herald Square. The show was hosted by Emme, which for those that do not know she is a pioneer in the plus size modeling world. Emme was the first plus size model to walk in a major runway show as well as be featured in major ad campaigns. Currently, she is working with Syracuse University and launched Fashion Without Limits. This initiative teaches next generation designers how to design for all size women. Normally, design students are taught how to design on a size 4 model, but this programs teaches them also how to design for a size 12. This is exciting, because there are a lot of up and coming designers that can create some beautiful designs for all women. Fashion should never exclude in my opinion, and I am happy that Emme & Syracuse University are changing that. Now let's get back to the fashion show. Emme went over the biggest trends of the season: Florals, Daytime Shine, Full Skirts, and Yellow. The show had some great pieces from Calvin Klein, American Rag, and Michael Michael Kors.
At the event, I met Chantè from Everything Curvy and Chic. This was her first time walking in a fashion show, and from the way she owned it, I couldn't even tell. I met her after the show, and she was down to earth, funny, and gave me some great advice. Definitely check out her blog, she slays! Also, I ran into Sarah from Curvily. She was very encouraging to me when I was thinking about blogging. Anytime I run into her we end up chatting for at least an hour on fashion.
For the event, I went with my Heathered Midi Dress from Forever 21+. This dress is $20, it is soft, and not clingy at all. It hugs my curves in all the right places without feeling the least bit constricting. I paired it with my favorite jacket from Eloquii. It encompasses all of the major trends of the season: Neoprene and Bold Florals. Anytime I wear this jacket I receive tons of compliments. Since it was a rainy day in NYC, I wore my motorcycle boots from DV Dolce Vita. My necklace is from H&M.
