“God said, NOT YET GWEN”…….

“God said, NOT YET GWEN…….he made a way and when he does that, I listen.”

Those are the words of The Mogul Diva, Gwen DeVoe, creator and executive producer of Full Figured Fashion Week®, as she spoke of her announcement that the event would be returning for a seventh year.  This came as a total surprise to most since this year was the finale of the ground breaking event, but it is a great surprise for the plus size industry.

There are those conspiracy theorist who claim that they knew this was going to happen or that it was all planned to get attention , but Gwen responds to that with one question….. “how did you know when I didn’t?”  However, my question is, what does it matter?  Full Figured Fashion Week® is a staple in the plus size community that has changed the lives of many.  It has connected businesses, brands, bloggers, models, designers and other professionals and given them a platform that they otherwise may not have had.  Full Figured Fashion Week has shown women and girls that curvy confidence really is a plus and that they can dream and live large. If there is a person in the industry that can find fault in that, I feel sorry for them.   10457895_10152542542843179_3791711393950247311_n

The “rebirth” of Full Figured Fashion Week® has created a huge buzz that will continue to grow as information is released.  However, per the information provided in the press release, we know that the traditional greatness of the past six years will merge with new and exciting surprises.

“The seventh year of Full Figured Fashion Week® is a rebirth. Attendees can look forward to a new presenting sponsor and an extra day of festivities, which will include more fashion shows, updated versions of signature events, an increased focus on entrepreneurship and the business of fashion, and the addition of a competition for young designers to encourage and develop students of fashion design as they grow into the industry. Gwen DeVoe seeks to “empower women in all aspects of fashion. The 2015 event will focus more on providing increased educational opportunities for businesses and creating positions off the runway for models and upcoming designers.”
