Each year, the annual Curve Fashion Festival brings together women from around the world to celebrate body-positivity while checking out the latest trends. It has risen to become every fashionista’s dream destination as it happens to be the only event in the United Kingdom where you can find a wide selection of online and high-street retailers that specifically cater to plus-size women.
This year, the annual fest is all ready to make a blast again. The 2017 Curve Fashion Festival is set to take place on Saturday, September 9, at the Exhibition Centre Liverpool. Tickets for the show are currently on sale now.
The Curve Fashion Festival: UK’s Plus Size Returns to Merseyside
The annual fashion festival made its big debut back in September 2015. Over a thousand women from all over the United Kingdom flocked over to Manchester for a day of runway shows, seminars, and exciting celebrity appearances. The following year, they moved to Liverpool and attracted even more spectators. This time, people from as far as Asia and South Africa flew all the way over to the UK to join in. The event was graced by the likes of Tess Holliday, Gemma Collins, and Hayley Hasselhoff.
Zoe Ellis-Pennick, founder of The Curve Fashion Festival, had this to say about this year’s show:
“We’re absolutely delighted to be bringing The Curve Fashion Festival back to Liverpool this September, and those that enjoyed it last year will be thrilled to see how much the event has developed.”
Popular plus-size brands such as Lindy Bop, River Island, Missguided, and In The Style Curve have already signed up to be a part of the stylish event. Other than retailers, pop-restaurants, beauty brands, and bars will be available on-site for visitors to come and indulge themselves in.
Pennick has also hinted at major changes in the upcoming festival. For instance, organizers reduced the VIP ticket price without removing any of its existing perks. In fact, they added a new feature: a new and improved VIP lounge. Aside from that, 2017 will mark the first year the Curve Fashion Festival features menswear and bridal wear. It is part of their attempt to broaden the market and cater to more attendees.
Tickets for the Curve Fashion Festival start at £15 (approximately US$19) and £45 for VIP seating (US$57), they also offer special group packages for four or more guests. Check out the Curve Fashion Festival right here.
