NEW YORK, Sept. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- On September 2, 2011 Mediaplanet Publishing released a Full-Figured Fashion report to the targeted markets of New York, Los Angeles & Chicago within USA Today. The report is being distributed to over 1 million readers with contributions from the founder of Full-Figured Fashion week, Gwen DeVoe, plus-size supermodel, Emme, and an original interview with 3 of the plus-size models who appeared in July's ground-breaking issue of Vogue Italia.


Full-Figured Fashion Innovator Gwen DeVoe is Devoted to Curvy

According to Ms. DeVoe, there is an overabundance of underserved women out there just begging for clothes to fit their fashion wants and needs and we couldn't agree more. It's time the industry sits up and takes notice. "The full-figured consumer can no longer be the silent majority. There is a plethora of self-confident, full-figured women all over the world who want to purchase beautiful clothing in their size, including investment pieces and the latest fads."

Emme's Advice for Women Everywhere

The original plus-size supermodel, blogger and feel-good advocate Emme shares her story and the secret to living and loving life with a positive and healthy perspective. "Most of us are balancing multiple roles in busy lifestyles, so it's not always easy to make time for ourselves. Nevertheless, it is paramount that we do. That means paying attention to what we eat and drink and making time for the activities we need, both physical and mental."

Breaking New Ground with Tara Lynn, Marquita Pring and Candice Huffine

These three beauties, regular fixtures in the industry, discuss staying confident in a career where a size 4 seems more acceptable, share positive messages with our readers and of course speak about the pioneering July issue of Vogue Italia - and the response from the public. Huffine is confident that covers like these will soon be the norm. "I can say with confidence that curvy women will no longer be an afterthought in the fashion world—not only as models, but as consumers as well."
