One of the coolest events taking place during Full Figured Fashion Week(end)™ is "The State of the Curvy Community" panel that we, the Curvy Collective are hosting.
The purpose of the event is to address the current state of the plus-size community and the significance of Full Figured Fashion Week, through the eyes of the industry’s leaders, bringing different perspectives from various experiences and points of view.
Listening to the news, articles circulating through the internet, the media would have you believe that the plus size woman is a burden to society, with no fashionable options, a second-class citizen, and one who should be ashamed to exist.
But of course we know this is far from true and so we will get together to talk about it.
"The State of the Curvy Community" Panel Discussion is definitely a Not To Be Missed event!
Here are the specifics!
Moderated by sought after speaker and President of NOW HOllywood, Chenese Lewis.
The panel lineup is an extra sweet one!

Sharon Quinn - The Original Runway Diva She has been owning the runway for years and still doing the damn thang.
