PLUS Model Magazine & Model Fluvia Lacerda Featured in Puerto Rican Newspaper El Vocero

PLUS Model Magazine has been working with Suzanne Ujaque from to offer plus size models in Puerto Rico more modeling opportunities as well as modeling workshops.


Our Editor-in-Chief Madeline Jones just returned from the island where she shot four models in pieces from plus size fashion retailer Always For Me. The retailer is known for offering swimwear, activewear and lingerie in up to size 26W.


During the visit, plus size model Fluvia Lacerda, who was also in attendance, was interviewed by the local newspaper El Vocero de Puerto Rico. Within the article, that is available online and in print, PLUS Model Magazine is mentioned for their work with local plus-size models to prepare them for a successful modeling career.

We also have exciting news for aspiring plus-size models in Puerto Rico and beyond. Our first plus-size modeling 101 workshop during Caribbean Curves Weekend was so popular, that we’re doing another one!

This time, the workshop has been extended to 3 days and will take place March 27 – 29, 2015. Returning for the workshop are PMM Editor-in-Chief Madeline Jones and plus-size model Christina Mendez. For more information, please see the below flyer and check back on the blog this Friday for all the information.


Special thanks to Suzanne Ujaque from for all she does for the plus-size community and plus-size modeling industry. To learn more about Suzanne, who was one of our 2014 Women of the Year, click here.
