Due to an increased demand by female consumers who wear a dress size of 12+ (over 70% of the American population) for fashionable clothing in their size, the need for experienced plus size models has also increased. The Full Figured and Fabulous competition, which originated in New York in 2000, provides a venue for talented aspiring plus models to be seen by scouts and modeling agents, with the hopes of receiving their “big break”.

The contestants, representing the states of Delaware, New York, Maryland, Tennessee and the District of Columbia, will compete for prizes totaling more than $10,000. The panel of judges consists of booking agents from agencies with plus model divisions, plus size celebrities in film and entertainment, a popular plus size model and the publisher of a new plus size magazine. Also attending the event will be former contestants of the popular Oxygen reality show/plus size beauty pageant , Mo'Nique’s F.A.T. Chance.

“This event is another opportunity for DeVoe Signature to continue its mission of encouraging women with curves to accept their bodies and realize their dream of becoming plus models”, says Gwen DeVoe, CEO and founder of DeVoe Signature Events, producers of the event. “There has been a tremendous increase in the number of designers and clothing labels who are adding plus sizes to their collections. We want to be part of that movement by being able to supply them with fit, runway and print models whose sizes and bodies reflect the average woman.”

Although the event is making its first appearance in Baltimore, MD, it has not experienced any difficulties finding sponsors, many of which have participated in previous events. Designer Monif Clarke of Monif C. Plus Sizes, who sponsored the event when it was in New York last year says, "Full Figured & Fabulous represents an opportunity for plus size women to see positive images of themselves on the runway, wearing designer fashions that are sexy, daring, and unapologetic. Monif C. Plus Sizes is proud to join forces with DeVoe Signature Events in pulling out all the stops for curvy girls, especially in the fashion industry. It's about time that we see plus size fashion for women who enjoy their curves and wouldn't trade being a size 16 for a size 6 any day!"

A particular challenge for some plus size women, is finding shoes in their sizes, particularly if they wear a size 10+ or a wide width. The event has managed to receive sponsorship from Taceri Footwear, a new designer footwear company, specializing in shoe sizes 10 and up. “Donning a size 12 since the age of 12, I have always had difficulty finding shoes in my size,” shares Richardson-William, CEO of Taceri Footwear, one of the event’s sponsors. “As a young girl, I dreamt about the day when I would have shoes as pretty as everyone else's. Stories of women who have purchased shoes that were too small because they couldn’t find trendy styles in their size were not uncommon. Taceri Footwear not only offers fashionistas the latest styles in extended sizes, but gives the opportunity for women to feel good about themselves and we are proud to be able to support the mission of DeVoe Signature events and their Full Figured & Fabulous event.”

Other sponsors of the event include The Voluptuous Woman Company, Bella Donna Designs, alight.com, A Big Attitude, Models Prefer Cosmetics, The Plus Academy, Dangerous Curves..the Tour, Bnurtured, Igigi, Your Travel Butler and Lucas Pictures.
