#theCURVYcon 2015 Recap

July 7 2015 | CeCe Olisa

*deep breath*

So, before I jump into my thoughts on the first ever #theCURVYcon conference, I’ll let you watch our little recap video…


I’m still in awe that this day actually happened. If you read the true story behind theCURVYcon, you know that we had about a year to put this together. My heart is full of gratitude for many people.

If you got a ticket and showed up solo or if you grabbed some of your girls and came in a group, thank you for coming to theCURVYcon!! As I said the other day, I don’t take it for granted that you girls see and understand my dreams…

We had a rockstar crew of volunteers (including Mr. Man *blush*) who volunteered their time to make our day run smoothly. Our volunteers were so friendly and kind to everyone and made people feel comfortable. Huge thank you to you girls!

The curvy community truly rallied around us. Kierra Sheard launched her new clothing line, Eleven60 with us on her birthday! Women who I’ve always looked up to, took time out of their day to attend theCURVYcon and hang out with everyone with no frills. Ashley Graham, Victoria Lee, Julie Henderson– thank you ladies, so much for walking our “flash runway” with our attendees just for fun!

Of course, special thanks to Amber Riley for being our Keynote Conversation. We did a survey asking who you girls would like to hear speak at theCURVYcon and she was the #1 pick, so the fact that she agreed to come is just… *hands up emoji*

Basically the point of this recap is to say THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

…and or those asking, yes we are already hard at work for theCURVYcon 2016. Become a curvyVIP here to get special discounts and early tickets! xx

    I had a great time. It was so lovely to see such positivity in one space. An event like this helps boost confidence. I felt like I could do anything after Curvycon
