Chevrolet and Project ThYck Present "Curves. Couture. Chicago." Fashion Show
During the spring and summer of 2013, members of Project ThYck approached shoppers on Michigan Avenue with a simple question: "would you attend an exclusive, upscale fashion exhibition for Chicago's Curvy and Big & Tall consumer during Fashion Focus Chicago 2013, and why?" The response was overwhelmingly positive, and the "Curves. Couture. Chicago." Fashion Show was born.
This chic afternoon of music and fashion celebrates individuality and Chicago style, complete with a Roaring Twenties twist. Hosted by Val Warner of Windy City Live, the show features apparel and accessories for both men and women by such lines as Chocolate Sushi Couture, Soundchick Accessories, and Steve Harvey Collection. As a diverse group of performers and models showcase clothes and sashay down the runway, Soul People's funk, soul, and hip-hop tunes set a celebratory tone.
Attendance at "Curves. Couture. Chicago." doesn't benefit the audience alone. A portion of the proceeds benefits Project HUGS, an organization helping individuals in need get necessary surgical procedures. And Project ThYck, the producing organization, is a non-profit dedicated to promoting diversity in the arts, empowering full-figured women as they pursue professional arts careers, and encouraging size acceptance and healthy behaviors—a mission that's earned them endorsements from several major political figures.
