Bay Area's First Ever Plus-Size Fashion Gala- this Saturday!!!!

I am so excited to be a part of this amazing event!  Being a plus-sized woman myself, I am glad that the fashion industry is waking up to the fact that not all women wear a size 2, nor do we want to.  For that matter, I'd like to see someone other than a walking hanger go down the runways (trust me, they're all skinnier in person than they are in the magazines).  I'm so excited to be covering this fashion show.... look for a blog post with all the 411 next week!
Countdown Begins in the Bay Area for the First Ever Plus-Size Fashion Gala
New York, NY, 1/26/2010: The models were selected, rehearsals have been underway, and in a little under a week and a half, Kiss the Curves: “The First Ever Plus-Size Fashion Gala in the Bay,” will be center stage on February 6, 2010 at the Historic Sweets Ballroom in Oakland, CA.

This historic platform, hosted by Bay Area's Quiet Storm 102.9 KBLX-FM radio personality, Sterling James, will allow plus-size designers such as Ashley Stewart, Igigi, Marie Denee, Corinthia Peoples Designs, Chocolate Sushi Couture, A Clothes Mind, Tru Diva and Isle’s of Paradise to debut their latest collections to an audience of media outlets, VIP guests, socialites and fashion enthusiasts under the direction of renowned runway talent coach, Charleston Pierce.

While the excitement is brewing for a successful event, the recent fatalities and devastation in Haiti has broken the hearts of the entire Kiss the Curves staff. Compelled to extend monetary help to the Haitian relief efforts, Executive Producer, Tracie Collins will donate proceeds from this monumental event to the Red Cross.

Advertising sponsors of Kiss the Curves includes, Clear Channel Radio, PLUS Model Magazine, Ashley Stewart, SKORCH Magazine, Lexus, Daily Venus Diva Magazine and Black Entertainment Monthly. Lead photography will be provided by celebrity photographer, Nana of 510 Media.
