When the opportunity to kick off theCURVYcon arose, we jumped at the chance! We love a good party — especially when in honor of a community of women we adore. Hosted by Chastity Garner and CeCe Olisa for the second year in a row, theCURVYcon brings brands, fashionistas, bloggers, and more to “chat curvy, shop curvy, and embrace curvy.” Sounds like our kind of scene! Read on for the inside scoop on our evening of cocktails, photos, dancing, and a surprise flash fashion show.
Designer Rachel Antonoff has built a cult following with her quirky and bold prints, theatrical presentation, and intricate themes. “Clothes should be a partner in crime for adventure,” she says. We’ve been fans for a long time, which is why we are thrilled to announce that Rachel has designed an exclusive capsule collection, just for GB! We sat down with Rachel in her studio to chat conversation-starting fashion, why she’s excited to design for the plus market, and how she met her rescue pup, Lafitte.
