Art of Curves was an event hosted by HSSAINC, Bigger and Better Thangs and Smooth Z Productions. Their focus was to feature designers whose focus is creating dynamic designs in size 12 and up to an audience interested in creativity and form.
New York City is all about fashion in September. With the industry’s top designers showcasing their spring collections on the catwalks in Bryant Park and other choice venues throughout the city, everyone gets fashion fever.
Bigger & Better Thangs (BBT) Entertainment and HSS&A, Inc. are bringing the hype to the “curvier” community with the first annual The Art of Curves plus-size fashion show.
“The Art of Curves, is not just a fashion show, it’s a movement,” said Blacque Southerland, CEO of HSS&A, Inc. “It’s will show the world that plus-size fashion is not just one dimensional.”
Scheduled to take place September 21st at New York’s Westside Loft, The Art of Curves will be showcasing some of the plus community’s top designers including: Svoboda, Trentacosta, House of Sir Charles , Sue Rock Originals, and BGU.
In the wake of the last year’s ban of “skinny” models on the runway, this event is garnering a lot of interest. Divabetic, Nova Intell and The Fat Girl Flea Market are some of the sponsors who are throwing their support behind The Art of Curves showing the response to the increased influence the plus-size community is having on the fashion world.
“We are stepping up the game, in fashion and plus size entertainment community, no longer with we be on the back burner,” said Michael Belgrave, President of B.B.T, Inc.
