Last week I had the privilege of being invited by Suzanne Ujaque, to the beautiful island of Puerto Rico where we were hosted by La Concha Resort, which was absolutely breathtaking. We formerly announced a week long celebration of plus size fashion and events coming to the island. This event will be the first of its kind and promises to expand its reach in the Caribbean in the years ahead.

Over 70% of women in Puerto Rico wear a size 12 or larger yet the fashion available to them is limited. The press days, which also included Marcy Guevara from The Marcy Minute, were designed to explain the current state of the plus size industry around the world, where the plus size market is in Puerto Rico and why Suzanne Ujaque believes so strongly in this project.

During our two days of press we met with:

- Primera Hora newspaper- Lola supplement
- Juntos y Revueltos Tv program
- Noticentro 4 a las 4- news program
- Traffic Chic- fashion & Lifestyle blog

Ellas y Tus Noches Tv program

By the time I left the island 4 days later we were on tv and newspapers and the buzz on the island had already begun.

    Whenever I saw or hear about such events, I get the excitement. At last this world is going to change for plus size fashion. Literally if someone looks around, Plus people are always everywhere, even more than average. Thanks to all you fashion guys who are doing such things to give life to Plus.
