The turn up is so real!!!!! Full Figured Fashion Week released the names and photos of it’s 2015 runway models today. When I tell you that casting director Sharon Quinn really raised the bar, believe it. As they begin posting the photos, all I could say was, “da#mn, you turned the heat up.” It is obvious that the event is back in a major way.
Last year Gwen DeVoe announced that Full Figured Fashion Week was coming to an end as she prepared to pursue new ventures. People came from around the world to bid this ground breaking event farewell. However, shortly after; divine intervention begin to transpire. Many people have said that it was just a publicity stunt but Gwen says, God told her it was not time. One thing I know about God, when it is His Will, He makes a way. And so… He made a way. Full Figured Fashion Week is back with a new sponsor; Fruit of the Loom, Fit For Me, an amazing team and major upgrades and additions to what is an already fabulous event.
With each day, the anticipation of the event grows greater in the curvy community. We are all eager to descend on the big apple for an event that is the Oscar’s of the plus size industry. This is why the announcement of the models is so exciting to us all.
Each year Gwen and Sharon travel the states and Canada in search of models that will not only represent the FFFWeek brand but exhibit the designers clothing in the best way. Women travel and sacrifice to be in attendance at one of the casting locations during the tour. Then Sharon is given the hard job of narrowing the ladies down. I honestly don’t know how they do it but they do. Attending the casting is a brave step, making it to the infamous wall is a honor and participating in the show is a privilege. Each year the models represent the best of the best but this year they have really out done themselves. In staying true to the statement that this year would be bigger and better than ever, they have a diverse group of beautiful curvy models that include both FFFWeek alumni and newbies. Below, you will find the 2015 Full Figured Fashion Week Runway Models!!!
