LITTLE ROCK FULL FIGURE FASHION WEEKEND
April 1, 2014 (Little Rock, Arkansas) - Little Rock Full Figure Fashion Weekend is gearing up for its fifth installment during June 6 – 8, 2014. Little Rock Full Figure Fashion Weekend is produced by Kurvy Kuties. Kurvy Kuties is an organization dedicated to the uplifting, acknowledgement, and celebration of all women with an emphasis on the curvy woman. Kurvy Kuties is passionate about the advancement of women in business, and young ladies on the rise. We are always excited to promote and support other groups or organizations that cater to these groups.
This year, Kurvy Kuties and Little Rock Full Figure Fashion Weekend have teamed up with One Thumbs Up NFP. One Thumbs Up NFP, a charitable scholarship organization, was founded in 2011 to commemorate the passing of Rainia “NeNe” Holmes who was the daughter and sister of one of the One Thumbs Up NFP founders, Carol Holmes and Ryan Holmes.
The “Thumbs Up” concept was a form of communication between Rainia and her family after she would suffer a seizure. She was often physically exhausted and occasionally unable to speak. Rainia would give her family the “Thumbs Up,” letting them know everything was okay. Prior to her passing, NeNe wanted to ensure her organs would be donated to someone in need promoting her efforts to help others.
With the founding of ONE THUMBS UP, the organization was able to raise over $3,000 through community support, charity basketball games, and donations. The funds raised went towards a scholarship for students who were enrolled at Philander Smith College.
This year, ONE THUMBS UP plans to host a weekend of events with proceeds again going towards the scholarship fund, their annual angel tree, and Thanksgiving baskets. Through organization support, Ryan is looking to increase the scholarship amount and further draw attention to the disease of epilepsy, special needs, and organ donation.
Little Rock Full Figure Fashion Weekend is honored to be a part of such a worthy cause. Proceeds from all of the weekend events will be donated to One Thumbs Up in an effort to help them meet their scholarship and other donation goals.
Little Rock Full Figure Fashion Weekend – Upscale Curves will present a weekend of events including a fitness camp and designer meet and greet/model conference. The main event, Upscale Curves, takes place June 8th at The Centre at University Park beginning at 7pm (doors 6pm), and will showcase fashion lines from several designers and retailers including Sweet Charlotte (Little Rock), BGI by Wendy Striggles (Atlanta), D Michelle (Nashville) and Simply Fashion (National).
Little Rock Full Figure Fashion Weekend has enlisted the talent of highly skilled makeup artists, hair stylists, photographers, videographers, stage crew, volunteers and Kurvy Models.
