The UK-based Evolve magazine and fashion boutique Trapped in a Skinny World have announced the launch of The Official London Plus Size Fashion Weekend, which will run in tandem with London Fashion Week on February 15 and 16. Just how official is it? Well, so far they have only two designers and three sponsors listed on their website, but they promise that the event will be "the biggest plus size fashion event that the UK has seen thus far." Here's hoping the next six weeks are productive ones for them. [R29]
