TRU DIVA DESIGNS by Veronica Lipscomb graced the Plus Night Out runway 9/17/15 for the second time in two years.
This year’s Celestial collection included textured and luxe fabrics to compliment every curve. My favorites were the naval inspired hi-low ivory jacket with gold button accents, worn by Jeannie Ferguson and the knit body-con maxi dress worn by Sommer Green. I can see myself wearing it with cowboy boots for day wear or with heels for an evening affair. Perfect for day to night. Any woman wearing her dresses will feel like they’re on a runway. Placing my order tonight!

Hey curvy divas, great news, Plus Night Out is back. The event catered to all things plus size fashion will take place on Thursday, September 17, 2015 at the Loft Hotel in New York City. So far the designers lined up for this year are: RUE 21, JILL ALEXANDER, QRISTYL FRAZIER, SERITA BELL AND TRU DIVA. Check out footage from previous PNO’s here.
In 2011, Plus Night Out was launched after attending years of Fashion Night Out events that were not ‘Plus’ inclusive.
The first event was held in Olde Town Alexandria, Virginia and moved to New York City in 2012. PNO is in its fifth year of production during New York Fashion Week. Like everything in life, it takes a village. We would like to take the time to thank all the models that participated from the very beginning. Here is the first installment of PNO Model Love!
