    As a heterosexual male over 35 I'd like to see more designers that design for our shapely, curvaceous ladies - not just the Anglo-Saxon body types. Not knocking this event; but Terry consider the addition of some 'plus sized' designers and maybe some latex wear (kinky) for those freaks here (you born here you know what I'm talking about)!! Congrats on pulling off another anticipated event and hope you broaden the event more to reflect the community you are hosting in.

      It's a fashion show for showing designer clothes, not a strip club or horehouse. If you want to entice your sexual or freeky desires go and watch porn.
