Chanell “Stallion N’ Stilettos” Jones and Tykesha “Ms Diva Doll” Reed have both been in the modeling industry for well over 30 years combined. Both of these women are plus size models and have experienced participating in many fashion shows where most designers cater to the smaller sized models (sizes 0-8). Though unfair there was not much they could do about it until October 2011, when these ladies decided enough was enough! With their combined knowledge, past experiences and willingness to make a change in the fashion industry, these ladies triumphantly decided to bring a plus sized Fashion Weekend to the Maryland, DC and Virginia area, known as CURVES ROCK.
Curves Rock Fashion Weekend (CRFW) is an annual event in Maryland for women with curves. This iconic event is one of the biggest and best plus fashion weeks in the U.S. This event occurs each July to empower women by: workshops, panel discussions, enhancing the self-esteem of the plus-size community, promoting healthy lifestyles through fitness and healthy eating, bringing trendy fashions to the plus-size community as well as awareness of designers, boutiques, retailers and businesses catering to this target market.
Curves Rock Fashion Weekend 2012, 2013 and 2014 was a HUGE SUCCESS!! CRFW 2015 will be even bigger and better so stay tuned!
