#FatGirlFall: The Women Who Slayed It During NYFW and theCURVYcon

After this past week, it’s officially #FatGirlFall.

Plus size women were dominating the streets during NY Fashion Week, attending events like theCURVYcon and CurvyNoire, as well as runway shows such as Chromat and Christian Siriano.

As we said previously, this season in particular has shown how much of a revolution has started where plus size women are claiming their space within this period of time that used to be dominated by straight size women.

Here at the PMM offices, we were LIVING for all the fashion we saw and wanted to showcase some of the best slayage we saw this past week:

What a dream this weekend was. We launched our @bloggerhousecurvycloset website and promotional video at @thecurvycon, connected with so many amazing readers, friends and was featured not once but twice in @instylemagazine 😱😱😱 Honestly, I’m just a humble Latina girl from the Bronx who literally cried her eyes out this weekend. So for everyone who I hugged, who congratulated us and wished us much success – Thank you so much!! ❤️❤️ 📸 @lydiahudgens Outfit details coming soon on the blog ❤️ #fashionweek 🤪 #fatatfashionweek #xoq #nyfw #thecurvycon #wheresmysize . . . #plussizefashion #plussizeatfashionweek #plussizeblogger #bossbabe #businessowner #nycgirls #xoq #insertnamehere #inhhair #inhbabe

I love this picture by @lydiahudgensphoto for the @instylemagazine #streetstyle feature, and I love that I now have *OPTIONS* in plus sizes so I can get creative with my look! When I first started attending #NYFW years ago, I ended up having to repurpose a Marc Jacobs dress to a skirt because I had such a hard time finding anything in plus that worked for the occasion. This season, I have so many beautiful plus size pieces in my closet, and I was able to pull off my head to toe #tiedye vision with a top from @baacalofficial by Cynthia Vincent and a skirt from @anthropologie, two brands I’ve been wanting in #plussizeplease for years 🙌🏻 While we are still far from parity with straight size options, it makes me very happy to see how far we’ve come since 2012! Check out the #fatatfashionweek hashtag and the #instylemagazine gallery linked in my Stories for more plus size babes rocking NYFW 💜

I still can’t believe that I’m in @instylemagazine. New York Fashion Week and CurvyCon were such amazing experiences. When I showed up at @thecurvycon I was nervous. Thank you @unskinnyshero for being so cool and chatting with me and saying “love that color!” You put me at ease. Also thanks to @lydiahudgens for capturing the moment. This picture says so much about what CurvyCon is all about. Yes it is about the fashion, but it is really about women of all sizes and backgrounds hyping one another up and saying “girl I love that outfit” to one another – over and over again. The world needs more of this. Thank you @garnerstyle and @ceceolisa for brining us all together. Shout out to the women who aren’t pictured who travelled with me and cheered me on.
