“It’s going to be the first of its kind.” the show’s creative director, Mr. Sola Oyebade said, addressing the press, “Plus Size Fashion Week will celebrate the curvy African woman.”

The organizers also promised there will be workshops in the future, to nurture plus size women in the ways to style themselves and be confident. PFWA will hold on September 7, at the Oriental Hotel Lagos.
