The curvy female form has inspired artists for centuries and plus size fashion designers are truly artists, transforming their customers into creatures of beauty and style.
Plus size fashion designers will present their latest collections of inspired designs at the highly anticipated NAAFA Fashion Show Extravaganza being held on Friday August 6, 2010 at the Westin San Francisco Airport Hotel in Millbrae, CA. These talented designers have a sincere desire to give women of any age and size the opportunity to be dressed in style and comfort.
NAAFA is very pleased to have Ms. Yuliya Raquel as guest speaker during our fashion extravaganza. She will share with us her journey, beginning at age five when she first learned to sew, to becoming an award winning designer as founder of IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel, http://www.igigi.com. Ms. Raquel was recently presented the Best Plus Retailer of the Year Award during the final runway show at Full Figure Fashion Week on Saturday, June 19, 2010.
Joining us as our special guest emcee for the fashion show this year is San Francisco Bay Area plus size fashion blogger Marie Denee. Marie is the owner of MarieDenee.com, a contemporary plus-size boutique and Fashion Blogger for The Curvy Fashionista. She is all about curves and confidence; we will see plenty of that on the runway Friday night.
This inspiring event will showcase food, fashion, art, and our well known Not-So-Silent Auction. Be sure to bring your wallets, checkbooks and charge cards for both the auction and the Vendor Fair being held on Saturday and Sunday, August 7 and 8, 2010 beginning at 10:00AM where you will be able to purchase fashion, accessories, art and furniture - all catering to the plus size audience. NAAFA’s Vendor Fair is open to the public and free of charge to access.
