Last Weekend I went to Atlantic City to attend New Jersey Full Figured Fashion Week. I had an amazing time! As many of you know, the original Full Figured Fashion Week is NYC based, so it was fun to see how they did things in New Jersey.
The weekend was promoted as a fusion of fashion and music and that’s exactly what it was. I was able to see clothes from my favorite plus size designers come down the runway and then party the night away with some of my favorite artists (Musiq, Melanie Fiona and Eric Benet *swoon*).
It was also fun to hang out with celebs like Darren Henson from Soul Food/Darrens Dance Grooves (*NSYNC fans know who he is!), Nikki Blonski from Hairspray, Tami from Basketball Wives and Chelsea Settles from MTV. In between all of the fashion, partying and celeb sightings there were shopping expos, panels and a fitness class. Overall, New Jersey put on a great weekend and I would definitely go back.
P.S. From what I can see, Full Figured Fashion Week is an idea that a lot of people are latching onto. So if you decide to attend one in a city near you make sure you research the company who is hosting. The two that I’ve linked above are reputable but not all FFFWeek’s are the same.
