Full Figured Fashion Week Announces A Partnership with Chartiable Organization Purses & Pocketbooks With A Purpose

We keep telling all of the curvy ladies that Full Figured Fashion Week is getting ready to descend on NYC from June 25-27, 2009.

The tickets for all of the events are selling out fast, and the third and LAST block of hotel rooms are filling up just as quickly.

Now, Full Figured Fashion Week has announced their partnership with Purses & Pocketbooks With A Purpose, which donates gently used purses and pcketbooks which will be bundled with personal care products and counseling services for women/children in Domestic Violence Shelters.

Join Full Figured Fashion Week at their Emerging Designers Showcase & Networking Event on Thursday, June 25, 2009 from 6:00pm to 10:00pm and get a chance to meet Tracey V. Bell (Chairman and President, PPWAP) and comedian and actress Kim Coles (Global Spokesperson, PPWAP). For all monetary donations of $25 or more, PPWAP will be gifting the donor with a free 100% orgnanic candle made with pure essential oils. We need your support. All major credit cards and debit cards with MC/Visa logo accepted.

We will have more news on Full Figured Fashion Week coming before the weekend is out, so stay tuned! Also, congrats to Plus Model Teslyn Butler, who won the spot of Cover Model on the Full Figured Fashion Week Program Cover, as announced last night on Plus Model Radio!
