FAB WEEKEND: 2 GREAT SHOWS ON 1 MAIN STAGE


Saturday night brought an evening full of fashion and entertainment with FAB Weekend’s Fashion Against Bullying fashion show and Blazing Curves runway show.
The event was held at the always quaint Embassy Suites Hotel in the Phoenix/Paradise Valley area. I love this place. It may be a large property but it always feels so cozy. Very inviting.

Terrance FAB Hudson
CEO of Blazing Curves
Kathy Blaze Jefferson
The co-founders of FAB Weekend Terrance Hudson and Kathy Blaze Jefferson along with Antoinette Monique of Fashion 4 A Cause

brought
awareness to two very different topics. Each face negative similarities which can be otherwise harmful in many ways to one's self esteem and worth.


Bullying amongst our youth and the misnomer that curvy women aren’t or can’t be beautiful has been an age old thorn for decades.



Not on this night....






FAB Weekend allowed every model no matter how old or young no matter shape or size to set aside any negativity and be free and beautiful on the runway.



So let’s talk about these kiddos on the runway…..

Who doesn’t love the little ones strutting down the runway? You truly have no idea what you are going to get. I thought there was diva-esque attitude at the first annual Fashion Against Bullying show…..but on this night it was turned up a notch!

The young men even hammed it up quite a bit having a good time for an even better cause. These kids of all ages had a blast being a part of
such an inspiring event.

I was grinning from ear to ear as if they were my own child. I loved every minute of it. It was great!


I was even impressed with the older grade schoolers taking command of the runway and not letting the super adorable babies steal all the limelight.

Bullying amongst our youth has become such a troubling problem in our society that suicide in our younger generation has been escalating. This is incredibly disheartening as no child should ever have to suffer at the hands of a bully. Sadly we are surrounded by vast resources that give bullies a high platform to be up front and center. As parents we must talk to our children on the daily and be nosy... It's our job!


For the children who are affected directly or indirectly by bullying had a safe haven on this stage to hold their pretty little heads high and smile (or stare like a deer in headlights) and make their way down the runway. This may have been the first time on the catwalk for several of the kiddos but you never would of known it by the confidence shown.

THESE KIDS ARE TALENTED

The talent billed for the night went right along with the stand up against bullying theme. Nothing like the young people being the entertainment for young people. They were all so talented!

And now for the Blazing Curves runway show....



Let me start off by saying "wow" to the ladies who have blossomed with a confidence so big it filled the room. 



I first met the Blazing Curves models several years back and was intrigued with the tenacity and leadership behind the company. 




I was impressed how founder Kathy Blaze Jefferson created a platform for women with curves where they can be pretty, exude confidence, and show there beauty inside and out.



Check out these beautiful ladies blazing up the runway...
