Have you been tuning in to our FB Live Series, Speaking of Curves! All about showing support and love to various plus size businesses, we are on a roll! Today’s latest guest is a mentor and the executive producer of Full Figured Fashion Week! Today we get to chat with Gwen Devoe!!


This business owner, leader, and mentor is a dear friend of the Brand! Gwen Devoe has helped create the blueprint for plus size events. We cannot talk about the growth of the plus size fashion space, without acknowledging the creation and existence of FFFWeek.

And guess what? We have a fun sponsor!

We’ve partnered with Fiverr in celebration of and for our small businesses. Their new program, The Shift, is a microgrant giveaway, as they are hooking up three small businesses each month with $1000 in credits to Fiverr!

Talk about supporting and helping small businesses, right?

We cannot! So, if you missed the live, make sure to pull up a seat to get to know a little bit more about the creator, Gwen DeVoe!

How much fun was this interview?

Talk about a pivot, right! I had to make sure to ask a few questions, so you could see and understand Gwen DeVoe’s journey! Not only that, but to hear about how we can support this event, especially since we are all at home! 

Earlier this week, we shared the whole breakdown of what to expect with FFFWeek, now that it has gone virtual.

We are all feeling the shift and many of these businesses are pivoting to stay afloat.
