This is a question that many have asked and depending on who you ask you will get a different answer. Let's discuss what is true Plus Size to you and why?
Where would Designers be without models to showcase their designs? More importantly, where would models be without Designers? In this industry there is a huge lack of support for one another. Tonight we are going to focus on the Desingers becasue they are the ones that make us look GOOD; in fashions shows, in our photos, at parties, etc. So I ask, where is the support for our designers? Before you go shopping at Macy's and spend your money on the "established" brands; contact your favorite independent designer and support them. Let's Talk About It.
Urban Thick is an online plus size boutique, onsignment & resale store. elebrating 4-Years Of Excellence October 11, 2015
Dina's story behind Urban Thick - As a plus-size woman myself, I wanted clothing that represented my many fashion moods. Meaning, wearing unique outfits with vibrant colors. My goal was to find pieces that were tasteful, exciting, and fun to wear. I wasn't finding these variations at my local department stores. As a matter of fact, when I moved to my new home in Georgia, my community had one dedicated plus size clothing store. This particular store closed it's doors a year later. Currently, we have two dedicated commercial plus size stores but I refuse to pay high prices for low quality clothing. Hence, solving the problem with Urban Thick! Urban Thick is an online women's clothing store. We sell and consign plus size clothes at thrift store prices with the quality of an upscale boutique.
At Urban Thick, we sell and consign a wide range of "quality" clothing and accessories. Our store symbolizes an ACCEPTANCE and positive ATTITUDE towards a woman's curvy image.

Models today are coming a dime a dozen. Everyone thinks they have what it takes to be a model but really have no idea at all. Everyone thinks that modeling is all about taking photos and there you have it. Today we have a very special guest that will discuss how she has made it so far in this industry and how important it is to stay humble.
Michele Lawson is a model, actress, mom and entrepreneur. She is very well known in the industry; and for a good reason.
Part One of the show we are asking the question that plagues the modeling industry; At what point in a model's career should they request payment for their services?
And in Part Two we will talk about if Money can truly buy you happiness? Some say yes and some say no. What do you say?
What term best describes you? Plus size? Full figured? Curvy? BBW? Voluminous? Which box do you fit into? I mean society says one thing and you say something else. Then you have your friend saying something different. What is going on?
