Fashion Fest

Looka here people, Beloved Endeavour is hitting the streets! Birmingham Fashion Festival is a free event taking place on June 22-25 in various locations around the city. Lots of new brands and designers will be there taking part in catwalk shows and allsorts. I will be there waving the plus size banner on June 22 and 23rd only (Thurs and Fri) at the event in Victoria Square, with a shoppable stand. It would be great to see you there- let’s make it a date!

On the Telly!

I am SO not made for TV. My piece on Cuppa TV/ Big Centre TV was aired today and I deliberately avoided the 10am showing as I just could not face it. I half watched and half heard the 4.30 airing through closed eyes and fingers in my ears. My voice sounds SO STRANGE that I may never speak again. Its very rare that I hear a recording of my voice and its barely recogniseable. If you missed it you can watch it here though it may not play outside the UK. If you are outside the UK and the link works please let me know!

Big brand inclusion- for a change

jobsI saw this in House of Fraser a few days ago and it stopped me in my tracks. A recruitment advert featuring a plus sized woman where they could easily have used a smaller model. It might be one in a series though I’ve not seen any other ads in the store and this one was in the men’s dept which makes me think it might not be. Unless……. they put the fat woman in with the men and the size 8 version of the poster on the popular women’s fashion floor. Hmmm… I hope I’m just over thinking the issue and that’s not really the case. I hope my original thought, that HoF used a larger model with integrity is a true telling of what actually happened. If that’s the case HoF then it’s a job well done. Can we now have some more bigger clothes too? Chesca is fine but I’m not 70 and I’m not the mother of the bride. Ta.
