Long gone are the days where New York Fashion Week all but ignored plus-size women, their love of Fashion and their considerable buying power. Yes, we still have a long way to go in terms of diversifying high-end fashion (Full-Figured Fashion Week being a fabulous start) but here's one more step in the journey that plus-size fashionistas can get excited about: Pop Up Plus.
Pop Up Plus is a new, fabulous mobile store that offers plus-size clothing that is actually chic and fashion-forward including Michael Kors, DKNY, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, emerging designer Jibri and Cookie Johnson "CJ" denim in sizes 12-24.
It will be open from September 16th to September 26th daily from 12NOON-9PM at 439 Metropolitan Avenue (www.metropolitangreen.com) in Brooklyn. You must check it out!
Oh...and it gets better. On the opening night, September 17th, five customers will win a pair of (glamazing!) Miracle Body "Samantha" jeans or Cookie Johnson jeans. The latter won our Denim Awards last year --- a must-have for your fall wardrobe!
Make sure to check out the store after making your Fashion Week rounds!
