    love the looks. this is truly plus size fashion. Not a single frumpy or mumsie look in the collection and i love the fact that a variety of body types were used as models. There is yet hope for we curvy ladies who love beautiful clothes. Good showing.

    The clothes were surprisingly good! Never thought plus-size women would look good in large prints or shiny fabrics, but those outfits were the best. I suppose it’s all about cut and lining. Good job! And the attendees had below average ( <20%) razzness which is literally unheard of for a Nigerian event.

    You are right Winny. All I see is unhealthy people with bad eating habit, life is too short. Hit the gym, cut down some calorie and live healthier, sexier and longer . There is nothing sexy bikini on the beach.

    Very nice and many of the models smiled unlike their skinny counterparts who seem to look perpetually angry. On another note, the finger foods looked yummy.
