The Int’l Fuller Woman Network Mixer & Model Call Recap

Since 2009, we’ve been a media partner for the International Fuller Woman Expo in Detroit, Michigan.  We do our best to spread the word to our readers by giving you as many details as we can because let’s face it…..we have to support one another.  Every plus size event we hear about is special because it gets us and you one step closer to the goal of ‘Thriving In Our Curves’ but the International Fuller Woman Expo holds a special place in my heart.

The International Fuller Woman Expo is definitely a family affair.  Our Features Editor, Cassandra Jones-McBryde is the Founder of the Int’l Fuller Woman Network and the Executive Producer of the Fuller Woman Expo in Detroit.  I’m proud to be the Co-Producer of the event.

The original Fuller Woman Expo was held in 2008 in Toronto, Canada and Produced by Georgia Greenwood.

In preparation for the upcoming event which takes place September 21-23, 2012 in Detroit, Michigan, The International Fuller Woman Network held a Mixer/Model Call on Friday July 20th in Detroit, Michigan.

Aspiring models came out, enjoyed great conversation, got to meet the team of talented women behind the Expo and auditioned to be in the “Curves In Motion” Showcase.
