Curves Down the Runway at New York Fashion Week: Spring/Summer 2017

So, it’s fashion season (yep, that’s sarcasm).

I’m usually so excited when September or February rolls around and not just because it’s a new weather season. It sparks a time during the year that fashion designers and fashion royalty hit the streets of NYC, Milan, Paris and London to show off their best. This year just seems different. Not sure if it’s because the more I write about fashion, the more frustrated I become with the lack of curviness in these streets (runways) or if fashion just feels stagnant.

Probably a bit of both.

So when I started seeing runway shows and pics fall through my inbox and Twitter timeline, I shuttered. Then I got glimpse of something special. My eyes popped and a huge smile came across my face because several designers have forgone “tradition” and actually added some curves to strut down the runways of New York City!

Fashion designers Christian Siriano, Becca McCharen for Chromat, and my personal hometown of Detroit favorite Tracy Reese (just to name a few) have all ditched stereotypes to showcase the curves of real women.

In the next few series of post, you’ll find a few of my faves!

New York Fashion Week: Tracy Reese Spring Summer 2017

Not to be outdone, designer Tracy Reese incorporated real women and models into her spring/summer ready to wear line last week as well. I can’t call it a runway show but it was definitely a show! Reese, had her show in a garden along a block in NYC. Beautiful backdrop for feminine floral and lace details.

New York Fashion Week: Chromat Spring Summer 2017

Chromat always shows other designers how to include everyone in a runway show and I do mean everyone! Diversity isn’t diverse enough until you’ve seen the shows that Becca McCharen puts together year after year. By the way, Chromat has some MAJOR celebs that love the brand too *cough* Beyoncé *cough cough* Nicki Minaj and I can see why!

Curvy Beauty: LornaLitz Baez


Back to business as usual stylish sweets! Today, take a look at the beautiful full figured curvy girl. Also known as Curves And Coffee’s “Curvy Beauty”. I love to feature plus size models and regular women with curves as much as possible. We have to remember that everyone is beautiful in the skin that they’re in.

 

Meet the lovely…

Trick Or Treat


Sometimes I absolutely love Halloween and other times, I’m simply annoyed with the thought of dressing up. Luckily, 2013 was one of the years I wanted to utilize my creative juices! The theme of this years “spooktacular” was 1950. Now you see why the excitement hovered over me!! The 50’s are a great time period to emulate because there were so many different and styles…from extravagant to pin up or greaser to a Marine. I already had an idea in mind and couldn’t wait to see it come to life!
