It’s that time of year, when our Instagram feeds fill up with snaps of celebrities and influencers gallivanting around the streets of New York in designer outfits and attending exclusive events for New York Fashion Week.
But there’s another event held during fashion week which is equally, if not more important, that doesn’t get as much attention.
We’re talking about CurvyCon, one of the largest plus size fashion conventions in the world, which draws together hundreds of women and designers each year.
The three-day fashion convention celebrates body positivity and inclusivity by empowering women of all body types to celebrate fashion.
And it’s more than just a fashion show – attendees can shop an expanded size clothing range, take a workout session and listen to influencers in panel conversations.
Now in its fifth year, CurvyCon is paving the way for greater diversity in fashion, with brands like Target, Macy’s and famed bridal label Kleinfield showcasing size-inclusive collections at the convention.
Here’s a look at the amazing plus-size fashion from this year’s CurvyCon.
Fashion influencers Kristus Ratliff and Carina Shero had a twinning colour moment.
