The organizers of the upcoming Full Figured Fashion Week had a model competition earlier (your faithful correspondent was tied up at the time), and chose Ms. Rosie Mercado, a beautiful young lady who is proudly plus-sized:
She is the official Face of Full Figured Fashion Week. I am hoping to be the official Body of Full Figured Fashion Week, but one has the sense that there will be PLENTY of competition! Sponsors include Revlon, Lane Bryant, Igigi, Silhouettes, TJ-Maxx, Marshalls, and many, many others! (I plan to wear Igigi, as well as costume-made couture pieces and 1950s vintage!)
Event locations include the Park Central Hotel, Hotel Pennsylvania, and the exclusive club Boulevard in Soho. For more information, go to http://fffweek.com/
More to come, dahlings!
