Hello Lovelies! Long time, no chat. We are sorry to have been so long without talking to you, and we promise to do better in the future. There has been so much happening since we last spoke, we hardly know where to begin! Let's go back to February, shall we? As you know, we launched an event called Curves in Bloom, and it was a HUGE success! We made so many new friends, learned a ton, witnessed fabulous fashion, shopped till we dropped, and met some fabulous body positive warriors! Held at the stunning Axis Pioneer venue in historical Pioneer Square in Seattle, WA, CiB was filled to the literal rafters with laughter and joy. We can't wait to start planning the next one! Check out some of the AMAZING photos from the event below:
Then in March, we shot new photos for the mini collection, Siren Song, that is up on the website now. Our stunning model is Yolanda Barker, whom we met when she auditioned for CiB! We loved her so much, we just had to have her for our new collection. We also met our photographer, Beth Olson of Beth Olson Creative when she volunteered to take the stunning photos for CiB. Based in Portland, OR, Beth is a boss babe who believes in the beauty of all bodies, and [her] "focus is on supporting small businesses and local artists who want to connect with their audience in exciting and creative ways...]" We are so lucky to have worked with her, and are looking forward to doing so in the future! Then, in April, we flew to Los Angeles for some fabric shopping and research into potential manufacturing partners (!!!) because we want to be able to sell in boutiques! SO exciting! There will be more information coming soon as to how YOU can help with this goal, so keep your eyes peeled! The day we landed in Seattle, we immediately packed up and drove to Portland to participate in the Curvy Chic Closet Spring Runway Show! Whew!! How crazy! We met some fierce fat babes down in Portland, and we can't wait to go back. Here are a few shots from that show:
We were so tired from the whirlwind of activity, we decided to take May off. We needed a break! This gave us a chance to really think about the business, and how it will move forward in the future. We are in the middle of making big changes and cannot wait to share them with you! A few more things need to be worked out before we can make any announcements, so for now, it is all very hush hush. We promise to tell you about it very soon!
We are so thankful for each and every one of you, and your support. Being a very small business (we only have one employee- Hannah!!) it can be emotionally, physically, and mentally draining . We recharge every time we hear from each of you, and it helps us move forward. CALL FOR SUPPORT: Some of our top secret plans require a bit of help from YOU, our support system. Here is what we need from you: pop on over to our Facebook page and invite 10 friends to like it! Follow us on Instagram, too! We will be forever grateful.
Many more exciting things to tell you about, but we have rambled at you long enough for today. Thank you, thank you for your never ending support, and we can't wait to chat with you soon!
