N.E.C. STYLE: Curves Rock Fashion Weekend 2016

Curves Rock Fashion Weekend 2016


For the 5th year sisters Tykesha Reed and Chanell Jones brought fashion fun and education to the Baltimore Area with the Curves Rock Fashion Weekend.

Weekend was filled with Karaoke, mixer, model competitions, work out class, panel discussion, shopping and most important, networking. 

I arrived on Saturday got semi-glam and headed to a large conference room in the Marriott Hotel in Camden Yards.   I meet with new vendors, chatted with some designers, and reconnected with some of my DC-Baltimore girls who I don't get to see too much. 
Congrats ladies for winning the Curves Rock award

After doing a little shopping (and by little I mean a lot) I headed over to the at the "Curvy women who Rock" Brunch and Panel discussion.  With a panel made up of Essie GoldenAlysse Dalessandro, Alexandra Boos and Cassy Jones McBryde, the ladies tackled issue facing the plus size industry such as fat shaming, confidence and working in the plus fashion industry.

But the cherry on the top of the B-more cake was the curvy fashion show hosted by Comedian Lonnie Bee (#goodmorninggirlfriend)
Lonnie kept the crowd excited and entertained.  You can tell this was more than just a "gig" for this Instagram sensation.  He was excited to be with us and we were excited to be here with him.  Hoe he comes back next year because he was amazing.

The fashion show opened with Crystal Diggs of  "The House of Diggnity". This designer "one & done" line is custom made. Priding herself on a one of a kind skirt the show started with a great combination of couture and graphic tees. 

When Curves Rock sponsor Ashley Stewart took the runway, you can tell the proud was much pleases with its reinvented body suits and lace cut out over the knee boots.  (hope they have an overstock of these because women were swooning)

Every year the founders find a way to give back to the Baltimore community.  This year working with Ronald McDonald house they help to make a young girls dream come true.  a young girl suffering from brain injuries, got her chance to walk in a fashion show.  How amazing is that. 

Alek Risimnic Couture
The finally of the show was designer Alek Risimnic Couture.  This designer cracked all of his looks days before Curves Fashion Week.  You would think it would be rushed but if he didn't tell I would have thought he worked on this collection for months.  The care and creativity that went into this collection was amazing and a great way to end a great show.
