NATIONAL CURVES DAY
National Curves Day is celebrated on the second Wednesday of October. Its launch in 2015 was celebrated as year 1 as the groundwork commenced over 100 weeks prior via social media platforms. This was in efforts to stop body shaming while encouraging women to embrace all things plus positive. As the movement grew so did the urge and desire to empower men who faced challenges battling society’s norms to do the same. In 2017, it became COED (/inclusive) and the organization’s mission of Embrace.Encourage.Empower. attained equal purpose.
Initially centered around fashion, to-date it encompasses so much more. Catch the skinny, since education is power, here’s the key! National Curves Day is in the community 365 days through collaborations and its global ambassadors promoting, participating in, and hosting all things plus: from fun sip and shops, empowerment panels, to health and wellness tips and classes. The annual celebration is always kicked off with a meet and greet housing the everyday curvy bombshell and dapper bomber to industry influencers from diverse backgrounds of employment and stature. The events are always confidence and self-love driven with an art twist.
The pinnacle of these events is the Annual Honors & Fashion Gala, officially registered as #TheMetofPlus. The Honors and Fashion Gala is to highlight fashion, diversity, confidence and to thank industry innovators and powerhouses for their contribution to diversity. Attendance is highly encouraged as the experience can’t be re-lived through recap alone and this year in particular history is being made.
Expect a fashion, beauty, wellness, fitness, networking, and branding experience, it’s something for everyone! Guest include top designers, celebrity models, bloggers, editors, media insiders, and +influencers from across the globe.
