On Saturday Emme the first Plussize Super Model was at the Memorial City Mall here in Houston to host the “Get Ahead of the Curve” Plus Size fashion show at Macy’s. I have followed Emme’s career throughout the years and was so excited to meet her. As a Plus Size model she has appeared on several magazine covers, been the spoke person for many cosmetic/ retail company’s as well as walked many of runways all while promoting a body positive image. One of Emme’s most recent project is “Fashion Without Limits” which focuses on encouraging a new generation of designers to make more clothing for sizes 12 and up. The “Fashion Without Limits” is a great concept and I am excited to see how it will impact the industry as a whole in the near future. It is such an exciting, encouraging time for Plus Size women in the fashion industry. It is so awesome to see that women have more and more choices in regards to clothing now a days than they’ve ever had in the past. As a Plus Size blogger I didn’t even know that stores like Macy’s carry’s a great selection of Plus Size clothing for women, until I attended the Get Ahead of the Curve Fashion Show.
Before the show started Emme came out, introduced herself and talked about some of the exciting changes coming to the fashion industry. Emme looked fabulous in a floor length, animal print, wrapped maxi dress. The show went over various trends and tips to help Plus Size women navigate their way through the world of Plus Size fashion. After the show customer got a chance to be styled by Emme!! And who’s going to miss out on a chance to be styled by a Super Model!!! Not me lol!! Emme styled me and I was able to add some really cute pieces to my wardrobe. She also offers some great tips about tailoring your clothing to fit your body, the importance of shape wear and a proper fitting bra. Emme was so down to earth and extremely helpful. It was such an honor to meet such a body positive influential individual from the Plus Size fashion world. Below are some of my favorite looks from the show.
