Yesterday, during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, just a few blocks from the main tents at Jazz at Lincoln Center, held the first ever curvy women’s fashion show, entitled “Belle Epoque.” Designed by Zahir Babvani, the 36 looks ranged from skinny jeans to short outfits to gowns. Top plus-sized models like Toccara from America’s Next Top Model walked the runway.

The palette ranged from palest pink to deep blue and dusky plum. We saw figure hugging dresses, swing jackets and sequined shorts ensembles. At the end of the show, people stood up, screamed and applauded. Check out the video of the show below. The age of the curvy girl has arrived!

    Too bad these gorgeous women were relegated to an off-site special “curvy girl” show, and not integrated into the rest of the 7 jam-packed days worth of shows! GIVE ME A BREAK!

    So nice to see normal women on the runway in a major show

    I hope this will be a regular part of fashion in general. Curvy, healthy looking women are a huge untapped market in fashion.

  9. kathyluman says:

    It’s about time they have some everyday women modeling. This is the way it should be. Women should be allowed feel comfortable in their own skin instead of having skinny shoved down our throats.

  10. Aisling says:

    This is great! Too many women and girls are intimidated by fashion because they have curves instead of looking like models.

  11. emtstacey76 says:

    It’s about time they start using ‘real” woman!
