But my favorite events were the fashion shows. They featured amazing ensembles from Tadashi Shoji, Alfsni, Jones New York, Qristyl Frazier, IGIGI, Baby Phat, Monif C., Eliza Parker, Queen Grace, Jessica Simpson and offerings from shops like Lane Bryant, MadisonPlis.com, SwimsuitsForAll.com.It was amazing to see so many full-figured women of various heights AND sizes (the size 22/24s were representing alongside the 12/14s!)
Here are a few clips from the different shows:
(I also got some footage of the "Let's Talk Modeling" chat with Toccara Jones - you can see clips here, here, and here.)
As you can tell, if this whole lawyer-lobbyist thing doesn't work out, I CANNOT count on a career in videography. Just the same, I hope these clips give gave you a feel for the weekend.
Finally, I have to give a massive shout out to my girl Robrette of Weight-A-Minute. We rolled together all weekend. *waves across the blogosphere* You can check out her coverage of the event here.
All in all, NJ Full Figure Fashion Week was an awesome event and a huge success! Can't wait until next year!
