The Curve Fashion Festival - Manchester CentralSaturday, August 01, 2015
The plus size community has such a special place in my heart and without it I wouldn't be the person I am today.
My blog has moved on from just fashion or should that be fatshion but I would never have had the confidence to go to events, wear make up to work (I know most people are the opposite and need confidence to go out bare faced). Travel around the country to meet up with people I only speak to online.
The more events that create a safe and support space for people who are plus size the better.
The next event in the Plus Size event calendar is The Curve Fashion Festival which takes place in Manchester on 26th September. It's being held in Manchester Central (Formally GMEX) which is really handy to get to and is enormous.
The event is split into different area's with a fashion hall, catwalk shows and a wide range of plus size brands. There will also be seminars and a number of influential Plus Size people from across the fashion industry will be there.
I'm also very excited by all the brands who are set to be there. I've been to a few other Plus Size events and The Curve Festival have got quite a few that I've never had the chance to meet with before as well as seeing some familiar faces.
The way they have structured the event you can buy tickets for each individual part or an all inclusive ticket. There is also an option for a VIP ticket if you fancy coming along you can find out all the ticket info here.
The more I read the website the more excited I am about the weekend. It will be a full day starting at 11am and I think the door close at 7pm which means there is plenty of time to check out all the different aspects of the event.
