Washington DC Woman to Receive Entrepreneur of the Year Award from New York Full Figured Fashion Week® for Plus Size Events Mobile App

WASHINGTON, DC – 2016 is turning out to be the “Year of the Plus-Size Woman” as a result of Plus Size Model, Ashley Graham gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated Magazine, and serving as a correspondent during the Miss USA Pageant (among other appearances). According to the NPD Group, the plus-size apparel market generated $17.5 billion in sales between May of 2013 and April of 2014, and over 67% of women in the United State are over a size 14. On June 18th, a Washington DC Woman will be honored at the 7th Annual Full Figured Fashion Week Event in New York City with the “Entrepreneur of the Year Award” for creating a mobile application designed to celebrate and connect plus-size women around the world.  The Plus Size Events App was creatively designed and developed to address the growing need to empower plus-size women all over the world and enhance an amazing supportive community that combats fat shaming and size discrimination. Additionally, the mobile app serves as an access point to share details and information regarding international, national, regional and local events with millions of plus-size women in the United States and internationally. The app features a PLUS Spotlight section that highlights models, organizations, fitness professionals, bloggers, stylists and businesses that have services and products for the plus-size consumer.

As an advocate for the plus-size community since forming her first business - The Voluptuous Woman Company in 1997, Gigi Biggins is the brain child behind the development of the new app.  Gigi states “ the plus-size industry has evolved in the past 19 years, however, I found that we needed a central point to connect all of the women who are part of this community with empowering and uplifting events and projects that go unnoticed.”

The app offers daily community and fashion information through the use of the PLUS News Tab which connects directly to stories about plus-size industry influencers trending in social media. In addition, the mobile app users can utilize the “send photo option” during events, share information with their social communities and find shopping deals from plus-size retailers.  

 Interested plus-size women can download the app from iTunes or Google Play. The Plus Size Events App  guarantees plus-size women that they will love the many amazing features and functions of this “specialty” app. For “curvy” women who are interested in learning about the “movers and shakers” in the plus-size industry, the Plus Size Events App provides the latest information pertaining to the fight for “size inclusion” and fashion trends.  Information concerning event listing and advertising inquiries can be found via the app or  For press inquiries, please contact Irene Morman at 202-406-0717, via email at or Text PLUSSIZEEVENTS to 40691.

According to Chanique Q, “I need everyone to add this app to their mobile devices and participate in posting current and upcoming events so the world can see us and support our movement.”
