If you have seen any of the fashion shows that are the trendsetters you'll see that a bunch of thin tall women walking on the runways. But who are these 'perfect body' people setting the trend for? The 'normal-looking' people who are curvy and perfect in their own ways. However, it is a rarity that we see even a single one of them who has curves on the runway. Look at the New York fashion week model walking down the runway you'll see so many thin girls. What about the ones who are plus-sized?

However, the Curvy Con comes in as an exception. The brainchild of CeCe Olisa and Chastity Garner Valentine, The Curvy Con is an amazing new concept that thinks of fashion beyond body size and is way more inclusive of all. The Curvy Con was launched in the year 2015 and holds annual conventions that offer workshops, cocktail hours, and a chance to bring together most influential women that are plus-sized.

Here are a few pictures from the Curvy Con

Every time you show up for yourself, you stand up for yourself, and you take action towards creating a healthier and happier space for yourself, you lay a brick of confidence on your foundation of self-love! Stop acting like you are a doormat, you are the whole house! Your body is your home and caring for it is always in your best interest. 💯 #oldnavy #curvycon #katiehwillcox #publicspeaking #bodyimage #confidence #healthyisthenewskinny #naturalmodelsla @missalexlarosa @alexmichaelmay @lcchan @outofthecorner 👏🏽💗
