As New Orleans fashion community and industry continues to grow and evolve, plus-size fashions has not been adequately represented. Daniela Zapata, event executive producer saw the void and recognized the opportunity to present an event that completely embraces plus-size fashions. According to Zapata, owner of Full Blossom Chic Consignment Boutique, “The average dress size of American women is size 14. New Orleans is already known for its food, culture, and festivals. And now with the new attention garnered from Fashion Week New Orleans and such, it was important to add a component that was exclusive for the curvy girl. After all, fashion aficionados come in all shapes and sizes. NOLA CURVES was created in an effort to showcase NOLA’s unique style for the beautiful curvaceous women.”

NOLA CURVES is New Orleans first full figured fashion show exclusively featuring Southern women, size 12 and above. Featuring the latest and trendiest fashions and accessories from New Orleans boutiques and designers. Hand selected local boutiques and designers to be showcased include: Full Blossom Chic Boutique, Miss Behavin Boutique, Plush Boutique, M.V.C. by Misty Chanel, and Designer Dama Talya.

NOLA CURVES takes place Saturday, July 19, 4-6PM at NOLA Space, 1719 Toledano Street, New Orleans and hosted by Chenese Lewis, Miss Plus America 2003. The event will include a runway fashion show, beverages and gift bags.
