ABOUT FFFWEEK 2018

Full Figured Fashion Week (FFFWeek®) launched in New York City with a partnership of 12 brands and approximately 200 guests attending three small events and one large runway show. Now in its eighth year, the event’s offering has expanded to include over 100 partners, including sponsors, independent designers, retailers, boutiques, fashion bloggers, small businesses and other industry professionals. We now offer over 20 events and runway shows featuring an array of fashion from top retailers, boutiques and independent designers worn by 50 of the top runway models across the country. What began as a bold first step in support of the plus size fashion movement has evolved into a breakthrough fashion event.

Although the mission of FFFWeek® is to empower plus size women through fashion, the event has quickly evolved to match the industry’s growing focus on the plus-size business opportunity as well. The success of the event has led it to become the number one networking opportunity for all businesses with products and services for plus size women, connecting brands with curvy influencers — the bloggers, independent designers, fashion industry professionals, and entrepreneurs in attendance who are driving the plus-size market.

Affectionately known as the Oscars of the plus industry, FFFWeek® continues to attract national and international media attention and has been featured in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, New York Post, New York Daily News, Newsweek, Forbes, Vogue Italia, USA Today, Women’s Wear Daily, The New Yorker, Glamour, Huffington Post, New York Magazine and many fashion blogs. The event has also been featured on CNN, ABC, MTV, Fox 5′s Good Day New York and TV One’s R&B Divas.

The next Full Figured Fashion Week will be held in New York City on June 18-23, 2018. We appreciate your continued support and look forward to seeing everyone there.
