This weekend in Philadelphia is all about curvy women! On Saturday October 12, the Curvy Closets Fashion Show will take over the City of Brotherly Love and on Sunday October 13 C.U.R.V.V., an exhibit curated by ChaCha N’Kole with a corresponding short film, will make it’s debut at the UPenn Museum.
Both events celebrate curvy, full-figured, plus size women and all I have to say is, “it’s about darn time!” Today, I’m bringing you some behind-the-scenes footage from the Curvy Closets casting call held at BellaNOR Boutique. Tomorrow, in a special Saturday edition of YCS, I’ll have behind-the-scenes scoop from the C.U.R.V.V. set! It’s a curvy weekend for sure and I can’t WAIT to be a part of the action!
A few weeks ago, YCS had the opportunity to chat with the co-producers of Curvy Closets, Colleen (www.shortcurvyfierce.com) and Dominique (www.empresslingerie.com) and YCS fave Aleea Slappy, of A Happy Slappy Greeting, Inc. (www.ahappyslappygreeting.com), who will be the Curvy Correspondent at the fashion show. The three lovely ladies shared some insider info about what to expect at the fashion show and their fall must-haves. Take some time to check out the video and hear what the girls had to say.
Please note: Although we’ve got the fashion thing down, we’re only amateur cinematographers; we didn’t realize quite how loud the cars driving by would be. We’re still working out some of the kinks so please bear with us!
Sounds great, doesn’t it? Well, lucky for you, you can still get tickets; but, you have to hurry! Visit www.curvyclosets.com to get details on the event and how you can get your tickets! Today is your LAST day to purchase them and you DON’T want to miss this awesome celebration of curvy women!
Be sure to check back tomorrow for a special Saturday YCS post all about C.U.R.V.V.
We know where we’ll be this weekend. Will we see you there?
