The event itself took place in the beautiful Bank Restaurant in central Birmingham. Before the event I met up with fellow bloggers Sian and Rosie before we went to the venue to meet Naomi. We were greeted by the lovely Curvaceous Inc Team, who were really welcoming, yummy canapés did the rounds and along with a delicious raspberry Bellini in hand we sat down to a catwalk featuring Dorothy Perkins, Navabi and ASOS Curve.
Models supplied by Hughes Models strutted their stuff to tunes from the DJ and commentary from host Katie Mulcahy, Creative Director for Lisa Shepherd Salons.
We were also treated to a talk from Owner of Dress XS a Plus Size occasion wear agency, it was really interesting to hear, and identify with the struggles Natalie had experienced when trying to find an outfit for her sisters wedding and how even when we find eventually do find something suitable we're then lumbered with a wardrobe full of expensive occasion wear we'll only get use out of once or twice. Natalie offers a service to sell those items on so that other Plus Size women can find a great outfit for their special occasion.
