The countdown to Plus Night Out 2014 is ticking away with less than a week until the big event takes place in New York City. And the excitement builds as Sydney's Closet is proud to be one of this year's sponsors for the much-anticipated debut of collections by indie designers. The doors to the event open at 6 PM Saturday, September 6, 2014 at The Loft at W83rd, 150 West 83rd Street. The lights shine on the runway promptly at 6:45 p.m. when the first model walks.
Thanks goodness we already shipped ahead the fabulous formals that will be showcased on the runway including a surprise design that we hope will be the finale of the fashion show. I'll be arriving in the Big Apple before the weekend. I want to be there in time to personally fit the gowns I designed on the six or so models walking the show in Sydney's Closet formal dresses
. You'll recognize several of the plus size models participating in Plus Night Out 2014 including Monique Robinson, the gorgeous cover girl who just shoot our 2015 Prom dress collection
with us in St. Louis.
Jovanna Reyes, editor of Curvysta Magazine, is the creative genius behind Plus Night Out. "Plus Night Out is the only plus centric event during Fashion Week," Jovanna tells Sydney's Closet. The event attracts attention to the plus size community with style and class. The Big Apple turns into a fashion frenzy during New York Fashion Week, a whirlwind of runway shows where designers stage dramatic and elaborate events to debut their Spring 2015 Collections. After New York, the globe-trotting collections head to Europe for stops in London, Milan and finally Paris. Meanwhile, everyone is just dying to find out who won the PNO MODEL SEARCH 2014. No wonder! The lucky winner gets these fab prizes:
- $500 in gift cards from participating plus size retailers
- Contract with a modeling agency specializing in plus sizes
- Paid photo shoot with an online plus-size retailer
- Two photo shoots photographers whose work with plus size models has been published
- Cover shoot and editorial pages in magazines catering to plus sizes
- Chance to walk the runway at Plus Night Out 2014
