British Plus Size Fashion Weekend

Hey Everyone!

So as promised, this is part 2 after my outfit post and I'm finally going to tell you all about the event itself!

As you all know, I was invited by Curvissa to attend the event alongside the lovely Lucie and it was such a good opportunity to meet some fellow bloggers and see some great clothes. I had to do it! 

Once I got there, in terms of the set up, there was a beauty room with teeth whitening and manicures etc, a marketplace full of clothes from new collections to look through (a couple of brands were selling too) and then the main hall which housed the catwalk and a bar/seating. The venue was actually really nice, I've never been to Vinopolis before so didn't really know what to expect but it was huge!

Once we got there we made a beeline for the marketplace where I got to introduce myself in person to some of the teams I have been speaking to over emails which was really nice. There was such a range of clothing and accessories to sift through and I have taken away so much inspiration for SS14. My favourite stall was MS SVG which has some incredible prints on pieces that you could buy on the day, I bought some gorgeous Junarose tropical print trousers and 2 Carmakoma skirts (one is leather!!) all at a great price. The girls on the stall were absolutely lovely too :). Outfit posts to come! 

We then attended the 2 pm show, I think it went on longer than planned but there were some fantastic pieces on the runway. The standout moments for me were Evans opening with The Cut Collection:

And Syreeta Badhu bringing out THIS DRESS which I freaking love :

And here are some pics just because!

Felicity looking gorgeous!

 Then there was a brief panel discussion

 Then I bumped into Deb for a quick photo of course

And last but not least had to get one of me and my partner in crime before the night ended

I had a fabulous time and I think the event is such a positive step in the right direction for plus size women in fashion. Big thanks to Curvissa for inviting me, it was honestly one of the best days I've had that's been blog related. 

So who's going next year then?!?!?

Thanks for reading! Love Sally X
