Curvy Girls at NYC Fashion Week?

I got an email this morning and I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it.  Here is the press release below:

OneStopPlus.com, the first and largest plus-size web mall, will be producing first plus-size only runway show in New York Fashion Week.

Partnering with The Creative Coalition, OneStopPlus.com will celebrating that 62% of American women who are size 14+ are just as fashionable as their size 2 counterparts, by sending Spring 2011 styles down the runway on the industry’s top plus-size models.

Separate from “Full Figured Fashion Week,” which takes place in June, OneStopPlus.com wanted to bring clothing for real women to NYFW, where it has never before been featured in such a manner, due to the recent confluence surrounding the acceptance of plus-sizes in mainstream media. The show will take place at the Frederick P. Rose Hall at the Atrium at Jazz at Lincoln Center, at 1PM on September 15th.

In addition, some of the headlining models will be Lizzie Miller, Tocarra Jones, and brand ambassador EMME.
