Popular Honey’s Child Boutique owner and fashion stylist Letitia McPherson Young held her first solo fashion event last Sunday at the stunning ANEW Rooftop in Grand Center. The event, titled Crazy Sexy Curves, offered guests a creative and interactive fashion experience that went down without a hitch.
I caught up with Letitia before the event to get some insights into what motivates her work in this industry, and she had this to say:
“I’ve worked really hard to ensure that plus size women are not shunned, but that they have a place in this industry. I see myself constantly raising the bar higher and higher. Honey’s Child has been around almost 6 years as every year we’ve gotten better and better!”
“This event will definitely push the envelope of fashion shows in St Louis. We are ripping UP the runway and giving our guests an opportunity to be participants! Sometimes it’s hard to really see pieces when someone is swiftly strutting down the runway. But with our event you will experience fashion on a different level. Having the opportunity to see the details in hair, makeup and fashion is going to be groundbreaking for our area!”
As an extra special treat, the event was hosted by Marie Denee aka The Curvy Fashionista, one of the most influential voices in the plus size fashion arena.
It was an honor to meet and hang out with Marie Denee, a special perk VIP guests enjoyed. Of course, I was especially curious to hear how Marie felt about being in St. Louis for an event like this one. Here’s what she had to say:
“It’s cool to be in St. Louis because I get to see a different pocket of the plus size fashion scene and how it’s grown over the years. I’m always excited to see how each city does things in its own way. That’s always refreshing because everyone brings their own spin to things. And, it’s so important to continue to have events, no matter how big or small, because they all matter.”
Crazy Sexy Curves achieved its goal. The live look books presented the latest looks in plus size swimwear, poolside glam, and resort wear. Models represented the range of Honey’s Child Boutique’s shoppers, and more importantly, they showed that it is possible to be sexy at any size. Crazy Sexy Curves was a not-to-be-missed experience of a high calibre I hadn’t seen in St. Louis until now. Browse the slideshows below for highlights from the event.
