BPSFW - The Fashion Show

You may be wondering why I am writing a whole post on just a fashion show when I could have featured this in my previous two posts. Well, the truth is out of the whole weekend this was my favourite part. Don't get me wrong it wasn't perfect, (issues with sound, delays in timing and some inappropriate body shaming comments) but for me I enjoyed seeing what the plus-size designers showcasing had to offer. There were many designers that I had never heard of such as One one 3Lucabella and Cult of California. I was also excited to see some beautiful girls who I have followed for a while on Twitter walk the run way - Olivia Campbell and Jada Sezer I am talking to you! These girls looked so gorgeous and they personally are one of the reasons I enjoyed this part of the event so much. I think if this part of the day is worked on even more for next time, it will be phenomenal.

I have to say I was in love with the Swimsuits from Swimsuits for all it was so inspiring to see plus-size women embracing their bodies in gorgeous swim wear that I personally would purchase for myself. There were so many items that the girls wore down the run way that I just wanted to shout OMG I need that. What was most refreshing was being able to see clothes that I have seen online be worn by a model in front of me. Do you ever look at something on line and bypass it because you can't get an idea of how it would look on you? I do it all the time! There were things that I have seen on my favourite websites that when I saw on the run way made me look at the item in a completely different light.Overall I was super impressed with the clothing and I am so glad I have been introduced to some new and fantastic plus-size designers.


  1. You may need to edit some of those photos as you have unwillingly (I hope) got some crotch shots of the lady in the black sheer dress to the left of the runway.

    However the clothes look fabulous!

  2. Love these collections, the clothes look great! Loving the high waisted polka dot bikini xx

  3. Frances - I noticed the 'up the skirt' shots too - whoopsie ;O)

    It looks like you had an amazing weekend Callie. My favs from your pictures are the rose print blazer and the lace covered cardigan - simply stunning. Thanks for sharing!

  5. I am so glad to see plus size models in anything! I wish more retailers would show them on their sites. It does make it easier to figure out what things would look like. I buy a lot of stuff on line and a lot of the USA sites still use really thin models for plus size stores. The times are changing but not fast enough. At least there are some really cutes clothes for us now!
