|Ashanti wears SK WiLBUR @ FFF Week 2010|
Next week is Full-Figured Fashion Week. Jam packed with seminars, panel discussions, and fashion initiatives designed to empower the curvy community, the festivities begin on Thursday and end on Saturday. This will be the second year attending with my sister, Ashanti, who is also my company's Communications Director. We have tickets for opening night where we will be sailing around New York City on a sunset cruise for an all white party. Nice! I am not sure what I will be wearing, but I have created a special look for my sister that I am sure will knock the socks off the crowd of curvy fashionistas.
Full-Figured Fashion Week is a huge opportunity for me to network with women who have come from near and far who may not be familiar with my fabulous design aesthetic. After all, not all the action is happening on the catwalk. I am really looking forward to getting acquainted with many of the ladies who come with high spirits and wide smiles ready to be encouraged and validated. Although I will not be able to attend the finale runway event on Saturday evening, Ashanti will be there decked out in SK WiLBUR, of course, to represent. She has strict orders to mingle and network as much as possible. Once the ladies see her ensemble, I am sure they will have plenty of questions. We did a preliminary fitting last night and all I can say is that she will look FIERCE. I still cannot divulge any photos, but the day of reckoning is soon upon us. Just wait. . .
Peace & Fashion!
