Have You Heard? PLUS Model Magazine Partners With FFF Week To Hold Its First ‘Celebrate My Size’ Expo & Town Hall Meeting
When we introduced our own hashtag movement back in January 2014, we had no idea how popular it would become. #CelebrateMySize was a way for us to highlight those women celebrating themselves in the body they are in now. Whether it was daring to wear a swimsuit or running a marathon, thousands of readers shared their images with us on Instagram using the hashtag and thus, starting a body positive revolution.
We are so excited to announce that we are now taking this movement even further. We are partnering with Full Figured Fashion Week to hold the first “Celebrate My Size” expo on Friday, June 19, 2015 in New York City.
Imagine a day of empowerment, inspiration AND shopping. It will be a day of celebration of plus size women. You can get pampered with a manicure, check out the latest plus size fashion at special pop-up shops, have some refreshments and mingle with other plus size women, including bloggers and representatives from your favorite brands.
We’re also proud to announce that plus size fashion retailer Ashley Stewart will be in the building, making this expo the next stop on their #LoveYourCurvesTour. The retailer has many special things planned and can’t wait to meet you and take part in this day of celebration.
The expo will end with FFFWeek’s Town Hall Meeting (at 1:30 PM) where you are invited to engage one-on-one with our panel who will be speaking on the plus industry’s trending topics. The panelists include:
- Marie Southard Ospina – Journalist (Panel Moderator)
- Donald Dolson – CEO, Curve Nation (Panelist)
- Robin Stennet – CEO & Creative Director, therunway+ (Panelist)
- Madeline Jones – Editor-in-Chief, PLUS Model Magazine (Panelist)
