The post below comes from one of our very own TCAP models, Kristina Denise. She was fortunate enough to attend the CURVV Exhibit in Philadelphia on Sunday October 13, 2013. Check out her post below
How do you spell Curve? Well apparently it’s C.U.R.V.V. At least that’s how designer @ChaChaNkole spells it. On Sunday, 10/13/13, Cha Cha N’Kole, in collaboration with DesignPhiladelphia, hosted the CURVV exhibit at the University of Pennsylvania Mueseum of Anthropology and Archeology . CURVV stands for Creations Ultimately Defining Views of Voluptuousness.
For N’kole her fashion is truly art. She used the CURVV event to show new Cha Cha N’kole designs inspired by the Egyptian exhibit and debut a short fashion film about a plus size model finding confidence. N’kole said the short film is meant to promote positive self-perception, hard work and determination” There was even a surprise runway show. So glad I got to be a part of ripping that runway!
She also had living mannequins showcasing designs from Patricia “Kizzy” McGawn, https://www.facebook.com/patricia.mcglawn
and Ajzha Kahn https://www.facebook.com/ajzha.kahn?fref=ts.
The Clothing was great, make up was creative and inspired by Egyptian theme, Think kohl, lots of kohl. The exhibit was sponsored in part by non-other than Full Figure Fashion week founder, Gwen Devoe. N’kole had lots of support from the curvy community, The founders of Empress Lingerie, who are also the organizers of Curvy Closets, came to watch the CURVVshort film debut as well.
I’ve posted picks of the fashions and some behind the scenes looks. The pieces in the exhibit were ChaCha N’Kole and the pieces worn by the runway models were part of an Ace Blakley by ChaCha N’Kole collection.
