Everyone knows I LOVE a runway. In recent months I have featured the looks of Elena Miro and the amazing Alexander McQueen... well - let's look at City Chic.
Most of you know (and were excited by) the fact the during L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival City Chic had a show in Federation Square as an OFFICIAL part of the show. This is amazing.
City Chic has long been my favourite brand. In the early Naughties, City Chic allowed me, as a chubby girl who wanted to avoid tent wear, to start looking chic and feeling sexy and feminine. City Chic is where I ventured BACK into colour after years of only ever wearing black... City Chic helped me create my current look - moving into dresses and feminine edge. I HONESTLY don't know what plus-size fashion in Australia would have been like without the emergence of City Chic - and for me, the brand was a revolution and a REVELATION. I STILL have items branded with the old logo and wear them with pride to this day. I LOVE them.
The clothing I buy from City Chic remains my favourite and so, I felt so proud to see the designs at LMFF featuring stunning models including the Australian International Plus Size Super Models Bree Warren and Laura Wells.

Laura Wells in the Showstopper.
The show had the face of City Chic; the completely stunning and inspiring Courtney Maxwell.
BGM Model Sakina looks STUNNING
So many sexy models from BGM were on board - I mean, seriously - what stunning women. I LOVE Jessica (this model) AND am spellbound by the dress!
American competition winners Lola and Sommer flew into Melbourne from the States and had blast. You can read their diary on the event at the Curvy Fashionista!
The fact is you can see from all these pictures - as well as the ones on the City Chic blog that these women have been styled, with curves in mind. City Chic is presenting clothing which is on-trend, but also completely innovative, sexy and empowering.
That really is one of the things I love most about the brand... it is empowering, and things like having models walk at fashion week - completely reflect that.
