Plus Size Fashion Week Africa Debuts September
Finally, an event for The Plus Size Industry! For the first time in the history of fashion or modelling, a dedicated runway show is being organised for plus size women. The Plus Size Fashion Week Africa (PSFWA). The Fashion Runway show seeks to draw attention to Plus Size Models and apparels. This goes to show that Plus size models are not just stuck being your typical commercial model, but they can also try their hands at High Fashion modelling. This may just be a stepping stone for your typical Big girls to start their careers as supermodels in the Industry.
The Where And The How Of The Plus Size Fashion Week Africa
The Plus Size Fashion Week Africa will be held on the 2nd of September 2017, Saturday at the Main Banquet Hall of the Oriental Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos. The PSFWeek Africa will feature runway shows, exhibitions, business talks, fashion enterprise on skills acquisition as well as diet talks.
According to the organisers of The Plus Size Fashion Week Africa:
“PFWA was birthed out of the need to stop the stigmatisation and body shaming of the plus-sized woman, according to the organisers, ‘we believe that every woman should be comfortable in her skin and body regardless of what the society thinks as long as they are healthy.”
