London Plus Size Fashion Week... Finally.

London Fashion Week, Paris Fashion Week, Milan Fashion Week, New York Fashion Week - What do they all have in common?
Aside from the fabulous fashion, the diva designers, champagne on ice and mass media coverage, they all lack plus size.
Despite leaps forward with some fashion designers (think Jean Paul Gaultier in Paris, sending down a size 24 in black lingerie) there is still a lack of both plus size models on the catwalk and coverage on any plus size lines designed. The industry is obsessed with thin, aesthetically pleasing woman and design clothes to hang off them in a bid for beauty.

Kate Moss once said 'nothing tastes as good as skinny feels'... Clearly she hadn't tried a Greggs sausage roll....
As of February 2013, this is changing as London Plus Size Fashion Week comes into full focus.

This event will see UK designers and brands come together to embrace the curves of the UK and Europe, culminating in a weekend of full on fashion and tips for plus size women.  This is the first event of it's kind and magnitude within the UK, with the media already keeping a close eye and the plus size blogosphere movement going mad over it!
Looking at the schedule, you'll be able to see a catwalk, fashion shows, key note speakers and debates, a plus size shopping area, swap shops and so much more! This weekend proves to have potential for becoming a key fashion event on every fashion mogul and journalist's calendar.
I've never really felt able to go to fashion events, fearing the evil stare from the smaller girls or feeling generally out of place, so this event is music to my ears.  Knowing what the plus size community is like now, I know they're going to grab this with both hands and take a massive run with it (or jog... we don't run, do we ladies?).
The event is being held in London, with venue details to follow, and you can grab for as little as £7!
So what are you waiting for?  Get your wardrobe fitted out, buy those shoes you've been dying for and pack that weekend bag, because baby - this is going to be amazing.
