Mexico will not only be known for its beautiful beaches after this epic event takes place.

The Curvy Fest, a 3-day long international event featuring first-class curvy fashion for women and men, will be taking place in Cancun September 28 – 30, with the mission of bridging the plus size fashion gap between Mexico and other countries.

Cancun’s first body positive event celebrating both plus size women and big and tall men has a fun-filled schedule that’s guaranteed to not only inspire attendees but provide a safe, body positive place for everyone to have a great time, mingle and network.

This amazing event is the brainchild of plus size Mexican designer Melina Alarconi of Generose who believes fashion is for everyone and designs for all. She has joined forces with Gwen DeVoe, creator of Full Figured Fashion Week and model coach/FFF Week Casting Director Sharon Quinn to bring plus size fashion to the forefront in Mexico.

There will be bilingual panels, with guest speakers such as The Curvy Fashionista’s Marie Denee as well as a Curvy Allstars segment with plus model and influencer Frankie Tavares.

There will also be a beach party, a fashion runway extravaganza with top-notch designers and, of course, SHOPPING! Attendees will have the chance to win many prizes throughout the Fest, including an entire week’s stay at the Riviera Maya.

With an estimated audience of 500 attendees, plus an impact of 15,000 social media users across different parts of the Mexican Republic, USA, Canada and Latin America, The Curvy Fest will be an event that you can’t miss.
