And that’s a wrap! The 2017 TCFStyle Expo is over and it was amaaaazing! This year we went all in and was bigger and better than the past years, this time we added a day of shopping and the Big & Tall Mens Fashion, which was a success! We want to thank each one of you for all your support, we had a great time and fun meeting everyone and seeing all the beautiful plus size people all together!
Our goal is to give you an event that can bring the plus size community together. Every year we grow and do our possible to bring you a bolder event. Of course, this would not be possible without the help of all of our sponsors, vendors, production team and of course YOU! We’ve been saying this year would be more vendors, more panels and more fun as promised.
If you weren’t able to attend this year’s expo, you can check The Curvy Fashionista Facebook Live videos to see all the main events occurred during the weekend. This year our title sponsor Ashley Stewart brought their Finding Ashley Pageant to the expo and 2 lucky contestants are heading to the finale in New York! Now, take a peek of everything that happened on Friday and Saturday!
The 2017 TCFStyle Expo was AMAZING! Here’s What You Missed!
Where do we start? There was so much going on! We had panels, fashion shows, lots of shopping and performances. We had three performances at the expo, Spoken word Artists Ashlee Haze and Terrell K. Mercer delighted us with beautiful words on Friday, and on Saturday we had an special performance by full figured dance group Pretty Big Movement. We had VIP events like the morning brunches, Ashley Stewart Mixer and Mo Vaughn Meet and Greet. Being able to meet your favorite influencer was definitely something unforgettable!
Panels like Style Has No Size or Age with our plus size influencers was one of my favorites! These real discussions gave inspiration, listening from their experiences and how brave all of them are was something that everybody needed to listen and know that you aren’t alone in finding confidence! Seeing the ladies get innovative with their walks and their poses at the Model 101 Workshop was fun to watch!
And my favorite thing of the event was the addition of Big & Tall Mens fashions. It goes without saying that you ladies loved (and I did too! hehe) the Big & Tall Men! MVP Collections featured their amazing line, had a meet and greet with no other than their founder baseball player Mo Vaughn and an amazing panel showing us the world of Big & Tall fashion! It was a great experience to learn how the Big & Tall fashion is growing.
The fashion shows was a really important part of the Expo! The Big & Tall fashion showcased MVP Collections line and City Chic and Dia & Co featured their latests finds. These larger brands gave us the opportunity to see their clothing and try it in person! And let’s not forget about the indie designers and new vendors, thanks to them the attendees enjoyed two full days of shopping!
And thanks to our stage sponsor Chevrolet, people enjoyed the new 2018 Chevy Equinox, sat in it and took pictures with it. This new car is just fabulous, 1st in its class for safety and it has wifi too! You can never truly express the fun and excitement of such a great event! Hopefully the pictures, video, and Facebook live action has you planning for the 2018 TCFStyle Expo! If you had fun this year, just wait until next!
Again, we THANK YOU for all the support and love! We look forward to bringing you a bigger and better TCFStyle Expo 2018! Please let me know in the comments your thoughts. If you attended, what did you like the most? Is there something in particular we should add for next year’s expo? Tell me all in the comments!
