Last Friday, we participated in a plus size fashion show organised by a new model agency Plus Size Model Management. The venue was the River Court Hotel in Kilkenny, so off I went with six outfits to show on the glamorous models. We’ve taken part in lots of fashion shows over the years, but never in one dedicated solely to plus size. We didn’t really know what to expect, but happily we were blown away by everything.
The room was stunning, decked out in sparkly gold table cloths, ribbons and candelabras everywhere. Kate from the model agency excelled herself, and could take up a side line in interior design! The models hair was transformed by Peter Mark in Kilkenny who sent two stylists to the hotel for the afternoon to perfect the looks. The models were just amazing and the evening was a huge success. The photographer on the night was Dee Sweeney of www.deesweeneycreativephotography.com and we were blown away with her work. Check her out ladies, she’s seriously talented!
Curvy Couture at Vanity Fair were assigned six models and we couldn’t have been happier with our girls! First out we had Edel, with her stunning red locks, we chose this top from Mat Fashion €118 to complement her colouring. Teamed with a pair of white cropped trousers €55 she’s ready for summer and could go anywhere in this outfit. These trousers from Robell are staple wardrobe must-haves for summer and are available in lots of colours. Karen, we called our “rock chick” and she threw herself into the roll with her studded shoes! She wore the same cropped trousers as Edel but this time in black, and they were just perfect under this tunic/dress €108 again from Mat Fashion. I just love this look. It’s edgy, it’s funky and it’s uber cool. Then the glorious Michelle strutted her stuff in this jumpsuit from Jomhoy €160. How fabulous does she look? What a girl! We’ve a few different jumpsuits this season and customers are loving them, they’re so easy and comfortable to wear.
Then we dressed things up a little and Jessica just blew us away in this swing dress from Daisy May €165. Serious sizzling sexiness! She’s like a little doll and we think this look suited her down to a tee! Then Holly took things up a notch and showed of this Tia dress €280 in all its glory. The bandage style on the lower part of the dress is perfect for showing off your curves, while the chiffon top softens the look and helps cover tummies if that’s your “problem” area. We love the colours in the floral print. Then our showstopper piece, Sandra sashayed around the room looking like she should be accepting an Oscar. Serious red carpet dress! At €1195 it doesn’t come cheap, but you’ve got to ask yourself….. Am I worth it? Yes, you definitely are.
