BRITISH PLUS SIZE FASHION WEEKEND…
This past weekend marked the second annual British Plus Size Fashion Weekend (BPSFW) an event dedicated to showcasing designers and brands for women sizes 14 and up. Totally unaffiliated with London Fashion Week (LFW) BPSFW took place in Vinopolis, London for a purpose to bring designers, retailers, and plus size women together to represent dynamics in fashion that often goes unacknowledged by the mainstream fashion world.
The influence and buying power amongst plus size women consumers cannot be ignored and with all the progression the plus size fashion industry has achieved it’s no wonder that “Plus Size Fashion Week” would be launched globally.
As the founders Remi Ray and Rianne Ward say, “BPSFW aims to enhance, empower and support the UK plus-size industry by connecting the dots between retailers, designers and consumers.” – DAILY MAIL
