Every year all of us plus sized gals look forward to the event of the season, the Curve Fashion Festival. I’ve attended every year since the very first and can honestly say, it just builds and gets better each time. You can read all about my time there last year working alongside Yours Clothing here but let’s talk about what’s in store for 2018.
New Year, New Venue
If you follow CFF on Instagram, you’ll have seen a sneak peak of their new venue on the blogger press day they held. Oh my goodness, it looks beautiful! I’m a sucker for an architectural piece of magnificence and this is THE one. The venue is bigger, better and caters for more seating and break out spaces (something lacking from previous years). The venue is St Georges Place, Liverpool, L1 1JJ (the big beautiful Corinthian column building). It’s pretty perfect for getting an OOTD shot out front.
New Brands (and some recurrent too!)
If you’ve visited before, you’ll be pleased to see the return of the likes of Yours Clothing, River Island and much more. However, this year also showcases Matalan, Marks & Spencer and Debenhams! Who even knew they had a plus range? Debenhams will be on hand to promote their lingerie.
It’s not just about fashion though, you’ll find some cracking beauty brands on stands to glam yourself up in the new Beauty Hub.
Celebrities and Influencers
I actually got all fan-girly the first year I attended. I met so so many of the wonderful people I follow on Instagram and got chatting to all of them. I love that the CFF allows you to meet some of your online heroes and this year has a few special guests in store. Felicity Hayward, Danielle Vanier and Lucy Vixen will be attending! Eeep! Be sure to say hello if you bump into them as I assure you they’re as lovely in person as you’d think.
Tickets are now on sale at £15 and include all-day access to the festival, shopping with your favourite high street brands, admission to fashion shows AND access to the How-To styling stage.
ONE FINAL THING- A COMPETITION!
Me and my gal Charl will be running a competition to win 2 x tickets to this years CFF! Keep an eye on my Instagram to find out more!
Hope to see you there! Oh and if you do, please come say hello!
