"The Plus-size Fashion Week Africa was birthed out of the need to stop the stigmatisation and body shaming of the plus-sized woman, we believe that every woman should be comfortable in her skin and body regardless of what the society thinks as long as they are healthy" the organizers revealed and it highlighted just that at the show with plus size model confidently strutting the runway in pieces from different designers (a total of about 20 local and international brands that showcased at the fashion week).

 

The first edition kicked off impressive with the quality of plus size models, designers on board with Project Runway's alum Von Ray bringing some attitude to the runway amongst other bold displays.

The debut edition also saw a winner from the plus size competition who will go on to walk for Fashions Finest UK during London Fashion Week in a few months.

 

The show is surely one to celebrate the curvy ladies in all their glory. See moments from the debut event below.
