Fat Market for Full Figures

SS on the Scene: Sonsi Full Figured Fashion Week 2012

Saturday night I was honored to attend the Sonsi Full Figured Fashion Week, 2012. As you all know, I was extremely excited about attending this event, especially being that I've never been petite a day in my life; my hips are wider than the Nile and my behind is obnoxious. So to be able to attend an event that was catered towards people with full figures, was something to rejoice about in my opinion. I spoke with friends about it and some interesting and differing points were raised. In fact they were so controversial, I'm now working on a special piece exploring the dialogue that developed as a result of this event. Stay tuned for that…YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS IT....

Full Figured Fashion Week 2012

The average dress size for women in America is a 14, but you wouldn't know it by looking at the state of high fashion. If a curvy woman is lucky, she'll find a clothing store that stocks an occasional 16, but oftentimes a 14 - or even a 12 or 10 - is the largest size that a "standard-size" fashion forward store will carry. As far as fashion is concerned, the plus market is often considered persona non grata, and even treasured stand-bys like Saks Fifth Avenue's Salon Z are a thing of the past....

Every year since 2009, plus size women from various places in the world gather in New York City for Full Figured Fashion Week™ (FFFweek).

I know the benefits of FFFweek first-hand because I've attended the highly anticipated event every year/ Like so many others, I plan my vacation time around FFFweek.
