Can someone please let us know when are feet hit the ground, because right now we are on Cloud 9! Sydney's Closet
Fashion Team was tickled to be a featured designer at the Full Figured Fashion Week 2011 in NYC, sponsored by our dear friends at Sonsi
. It was a fun filled event, with fashions ranging from casual to glitz and glamour. Attendees from across the world got a first hand look at the wonderful plus size fashions available to them, and a look at fashions to come. Designers and stores are realizing the need to be more real with their plus size fashion, and the options available to women of all sizes. Every woman deserves the right to look and feel The finale show on Saturday was attended by 1,000 customers, and showcased more than 25 designers. Sonsi set the mood with being first to the floor, with 12 fabulous looks. Sydney's Closet is extremely proud to have been the final featured in the Sonsi collection with Dressed to the Nines (shown below)! Even more recognition was given by CNN Living with their article Plus Sized Women: It's our turn for fine fashion.
CNN showcased the designs showed by Sonsi, including Sydney's Fashion, and did interviews with Mara Urshel (Owner of Kleinfeld), and Gwen DeVoe, the executive producer of FFF. They agree the need is there, by the consumers, but now we need to get more designers to listen.
