      Full Figured Fashion Week

      October 28, 2011

      Charlet arrives in New York to attend Full Figured Fashion Week. First on the schedule is a plus-size model competition where aspiring models literally crawl on their hands and knees for the chance to be crowned winner. 

      Then we check out a plus-size trade show, Curves in the City, where we meet, amongst others, the True Sheros, creators of the world's only plus-sized action hero comic book and see how Full Figured Fashion Week is about more than just clothes. But not everyone is so enthusiastic: the ladies who lunch of Fifth Avenue feel that plus-size fashion should be kept firmly in the back of the department stores.
