On April 26 – April 29, 2018, Curvy Chic Closet, the largest plus size consignment event in North America, is holding their four-day, semi-annual Consignment Sales Event and Fashion Show in the Orenco Area in Hillsboro, Oregon.
Curvy Chic Closet’s founder, Becky Jarvis, states “I started Curvy Chic Closet after realizing that there were no plus size consignment events to help women buy beautiful gently used plus size clothing. 65% of American women wear a size 14 and above, yet we are left behind in the fashion industry at traditional brick and mortar stores. I am able to offer amazing shopping under one roof with over 20,000 consigned items (clothing, shoes, jewelry, purses, and accessories) for the plus size consumer. Each year, our fashion show continues to grow. We are proud of the women that were casted for the spring 2018 event and they’re empowering beautiful curvy women to be role models!”
Attendees can indulge in a new wardrobe by trading their own gently-used clothing for a massive selection of outfits and accessories from fellow guests and more than 22 participating vendors. Attendees who wish to consign their gently-used, size 14/XL-34 clothes should register here to receive a consigner number and register for a drop-off appointment.
The largest plus size fashion show on the West Coast will be held on Saturday, April 28, benefiting Make-A-Wish Oregon! Featured designers include Belle Ampleur, Curvy Diva Parties, Chocolate Diamonds, Jeans to Dreams, Heavenly Bridal Boutique, Lady J, MVP Collections, and Rosy Cheek Designs. This exciting fashion show will feature Elizabeth Nunez with BBW Generations.
Curvy Chic Closet is joining forces with Holy Trinity Food Bank, a non-profit that supports the local community. Attendees can bring toiletry items in exchange for free presale admission ($5 value). Toiletry items will be accepted anytime during the 4-day event.
Another charity benefiting from Curvy Chic Closet’s generosity is Gung Ho Ministries, a women’s resale shop that generates income to help serve homeless veterans, the needy, and the underprivileged. In the past five years, Curvy Chic Closet’s consigners have donated approximately 20,000 pounds of goods to Gung Ho Ministries, helping countless women to dress for success and improve their lives and circumstances.
