In September 2011 Media Planet USA released the first ever Full Figure Fashion supplement in USA Today…and what success it was!! It spread like wildfire across the full figure community and made a bold statement within the fashion industry. The response and success of the publication was so fierce that a second edition was sure to come in the future…and sure enough the Spring/Summer issue of Full Figure Fashion was released in USA Today on Friday, March 16th, 2012!
You can check out the PDF of this fabulous 12 page spread HERE.
You will find articles and advertisements from all our beloved full figure fashion brands and industry professionals. Plus Model Magazine is featured on the front page of the supplement where they have styled 6 well-known and lovely full figure models. Emme, Supermodel and Founder of EmmeNation.com speaks out on the opening page, along with other industry professionals like Madeline Figueroa-Jones of Plus Model Magazine, Marie Denee of The Curvy Fashionista, and Catherine Schuller. There is even some thoughts, advice and insight from some of the industry’s leading brands such as Olga Intimates, Bare Necessities, Ulla Popken and Sorella Swim.
With publishing companies like Media Planet USA partnering with full figure fashion brands and professionals I think we will continue to see big things happening for the industry!! Thank you Media Planet for giving us a platform where our voices can be heard…
I am so excited to see what is ahead for the fashion industry!!
