Plus size women’s wear platform, Aboutthatcurvylife is set to take the runway at the upcoming Glitz Africa Fashion Week, holding in Ghana.
Aboutthatcurvylife.com which is the brain child of Latasha Ngwube made its debut at the Heineken Lagos Fashion and Design Week, 2016 to rave reviews.
At the Glitz Africa Fashion Week 2017 taking place in Accra, Ghana from 5th-8th October, the ATCL collective will be presenting three Nigerian brands – one menswear and two womenswear. This will be the first ever inclusion of plus-size fashion apparel in the history of Glitz Africa Fashion Week.
The designers curated for the Aboutthatcurvylife Collective include: Abaya Lagos by Salihat, Nori Clothing both womenswear brands and menswear brand Assian .
Each of these brands have carved a unique niche for themselves as true body positive champions that understand the need for fashion and style at all sizes. It was on this basis that Aboutthatcurvylife.com’s founder, Latasha Ngwube chose them. They in turn have communicated their enthusiasm for the opportunity to showcase their brands at Glitz Africa Fashion Week 2017.
The ATCL Collective is showing on Saturday the 7th of October at Glitz Africa Fashion Week’s runway in Kempinski Hotel Gold Coast City, Accra, Ghana.
We are also pleased to announce the first ever ATCL Collective ambassadors; Ghanaian NY-based plus size fashion blogger women’s advocate, and creator of Foreign Curves blog and Anita Matey, and Ghanaian Media personality AJ Sarpong.
These two individuals share similar goals of using the ATCL platforms to spread messages of body positivity through creative forms of expression.
