This Dutchie went to the Curve Fashion Festival in Liverpool! A plus-size walhalla & meeting bloggers such as Tess Holliday and Callie Thorpe
In the weekend of 10 September I went to the Curve Fashion Festival in Liverpool and I had so much fun! I shopped, I was star struck meeting bloggers and were impressed by all the new collections of my favorite plus-size brands, all in one place. It was such a fun and positive weekend, only good vibes.
We decided to go about three days upfront but I wasn’t sure if I could manage to go. I arrange to be a stand by passenger ont he EasyJet flight to Liverpool, which means you can only come when there’s a seat available. It was quite unsure as I only heard it a few minutes before take off. Luckily we could go, both up and down safe and sound. Thank you EasyJet! To be honest, I said just before we left who is going to Liverpool anyway? Joking about the fact that the flight was almost sold out. Well men. Men go to Liverpool! There was an important soccer match and they wanted to watch it. Well ladies, next time just tag along with you man because Liverpool is shop city! I’ll tell you more about that soon.
the Curve Fashion Festival, CFF
The Curve Fashion Festival was held in the brand new exhibition center near the center of Liverpool, so it was only a short taxi drive over there. We went to the fair and we expected it to be bigger actually, but when walking around we noticed there was everything we needed. All the great British plus-size brands were present and we couldn’t be happier! One of my colleague bloggers Els couldn’t come and gave us her VIP tickets. Thank you Elsie! We started with a glass of prosecco and when we arrived a fashion show of several brands had started. Okay, let’s have a sit first front row!
The fair itself was built up with little boots and each had a fashion brand or something related to plus-size. There were talks by the plus-size bloggers which were inspiring and very positive. Also it’s fun to meet them in person and interact. The brands brought their current collections for shopping. Too bad we only had carry on luggage so I had to restrain myself! Besides that they also showed the newest collections which are coming this winter, So exiting!
whatch my vlog about the Curve Fashion Festival & the preview collections:
If you know me you would say that there aren’t many moments where I’m just flabbergasted. It happened, oh yes! I was completely star struck when I saw Tess Holliday standing just a few meters away. It sounds stupid but it surprised me too, I was actually a little bit nervous. There were only a few people standing in line to have their photos taken so I decided to go too, as a real fan, lol! Luckily I was a little more spontaneous when I met the other beautiful ladies. After taking a few Elvi-selfies with Hayley Hasselhoff, we also took some pictures together. Later on I had a talk with the lovely blogger babes, too bad we meet up more often.

plus-size fashion shopping & preview
Some of the brands were showing their new collections, which weren’t available yet in stores. They were also selling their current collection. Oh how hard it was to not shop! I could only carry hand luggage so it wasn’t going to fit anyway. Finally I ended up with a ton of goodie bags as you can see at the top of this page, standing at cutest cab ever. In my next post I will tell you all about the brands I spotted, their sneak previews and new collection items. A little hint, you really want it to be fall soon!
