Sarah Chiwaya of Curvily Interviews NYFW Model Kailee O’Sullivan

By Sarah Chiwaya

While attending the Chromat show at MADE Fashion Week, I realized one of the models on the runway looked very familiar. Then it hit me – it was Kailee O’Sullivan, a face I see modeling Gwynnie Bee garments all the time. Since she was now modeling for two of my favorite companies, I wanted to take the opportunity to chat with her about the experience of walking in a NYFW show, something usually reserved for straight size models.

Because the rules were made to be broken.

What is more style-celebratory than a gorgeous print? Prints are an easy way to add a touch of intrigue to any ensemble – and with minimal effort too. They can be expressive, vibrant, attention-grabbing, and bold, soft, feminine, flirty, and fun. And with an endless and varied offering there’s certainly something for everyone.
