FFFWeek Atl Casting

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was action packed, but the highlight was popping by the Full Figured Fashion Week Atlanta casting. Hosted in the up and coming warehouse district off of Metropolitan Parkway, curvy divas from the southeast showed up to strut their stuff for the FFFWeek team.

FFFWeek founder, Gwen Devoe, accompanied by her trusted council Sharon Quinn & Marco Mays took Atlanta by storm. Whenever this fashion trifecta is around you better bring your "A" game. The team was looking for a polished appearance with a clean walk, and boy did they get it. I ran into two of my fave Atlanta models, Nedra Phillips & Telethia Penn who ripped the runway to shreds with their fierceness.

Smiling like I just won a gas card according to Marco! lol!

In addition to all of the lovely models that came out to walk, amazing volunteers like Robynne & Alex also showed up to lend their support to the FFFWeek casting. I also ran into Nicki Lynch and the Plus+ crew who were also on hand to spread their message of positive body image.

If you've never been to a FFFweek casting, it's a 100% positive experience. Even if you aren't chosen, you are given some great advice by veterans in the fashion industry that is invaluable. When they offer you a critique it's not to hurt your feelings, but to make you better and hopefully prepare you for the next level.

I had such an amazing time catching up with everyone.  On a side note, the Marvelous Marco Mays will be studying abroad in May and needs our support. Check out his go fund me page and show him some love!  I can't wait to see everyone again in June for FFFWeek! Until then...

Make the world your personal runway!
