Memphis Fashion Week: Style Recap

Hey Curvies!!!

Memphis Fashion Week celebrates “local and regional fashion through designers, photographers, models and boutiques. Proceeds from official events benefit The Memphis Fashion Design Network.” This style recap will be a “rolling” blog post for the next three weeks. I will add each event’s look on a weekly basis. Stay tuned!

The first event I attended was the Trunk Show were headlining designers hosted a pop-up shop on the Highland strip. This event was super cool, because A portion of all sales will benefit MFDN. With this event my goal was casual and cute. I wanted to recreate a look with my sheer dress with jeans as well as be comfortable in my block heels. Mission accomplished.

Style Notes: My jeans are true to size in an 18. My red block heels are also true to size in a 10. My sheer dress is oversided and the size large is perfect.

The next event I attended was the Featured Designer Runway Shows that took place at Graceland’s Presley Motors Museum. This show featured looks from T I E N A from Memphis, TN, Daniel Maganta from Orange County, CA, This Is Sloane from Austin, TX, Ituen Basi from Nigeria, and Rachel Roy from NewYork, NY. This event was chic so I opted for this little black dress that spoke volumes. It was soft figure flattering and moved with my body. I went with some comfy tapestry platforms (similar) and tassel earrings to complete this outfit.

Style Notes: I am wearing a 0x in this dress and I suggest you go down a size. I am usually a 1x, but with the fabric content I sized down. My shoes (similar) are true to size in a 10.

The last Memphis Fashion Week event I attended was the Emerging Designer Runway show that took place at Memphis College of Arts. This show was especially amazing because it featured designers who were selected from a call out for sketches last Fall. These designers then had “approximately six months to make their designs runway-ready by selecting fabrics, creating patterns, sewing their pieces, and fitting models.” For this event I could not wait to wear this navy bodycon. This navy bodycon was everything and fit incredible. I added my all-time favorite kimono (similar) this kimono is super old, my tan block heels, and a gold clutch.

Style Notes: My navy bodycon is in a size XXL. The fit is perfect. My kimono (similar) is old in a size 2x. My tan block heels are true to size in a 10.
