UK Plus Size Fashion Week
The UK Plus Size Fashion Week or rather weekend is more than just an event, it’s about bringing together like-minded people to talk about plus size fashion, body confidence and so much more. The London based convention takes place in May with a campaign of #BeProudBeYou.

The one thing that all of these conventions have in common is that they celebrate body confidence and we think that that’s pretty great.
