The third annual Full Figured Fashion Week will commence in New York this Thursday, and according to organizers, tickets for many of the events have already sold out. Some events are invite-only, as they’re directed toward press, buyers, and other folks in the industry, but several cater toward the full-figured everywoman willing to spend money on admission, including sample sales ($10 admission), trunk shows, and a shopping crawl to plus-size stores around New York ($75). “It’s been crazy,” said organizer Gwen Devoe. “It’s just exploding … We have money to spend, and we’re happy to give it to the designers and stores who help us celebrate our curves.”
