Nothing excites me more than plus size women taking it upon themselves to empower others by taking a stand for what they believe in. That’s exactly what plus size brand Carmakoma did during Copenhagen Fashion Week this year.
On February 1st at 2 p.m. visitors attending Copenhagen Fashion Week were in for a treat as 14 plus size models participated in a pop up fashion show showing off clothing up to a size 24 on the catwalk. To kick off the untraditional show, Carmakoma enlisted the help of plus size model and Brazilian fashion icon Fluvia Lacerda.
Carmakoma’s commitment to curvy fashion:
”Our show will definitely be unique. And it is about time that curvy models now take part on the official fashion week programme. Carmakoma has been on the fashion week fair several times now, but we have had to do our own unofficial shows to show off our clothes. This time we are backed by the fair. It has been hard work, but curvy women and their need for fashionable clothing are definitely on the way to get more and more recognition from the fashion industry”, says the two Danish women behind the successful, curvy fashion brand Carmakoma – Angelica Weiss and Heidie Lykke.
Denmark is pretty far away so if you’re like us and weren’t able to attend, you’re in luck. Take a sneak peek at Carmakoma’s 2013 AW Collection.
