What are you doing June 26-28, 2009? Me? Well I am trying to get my Curvy.Confident.Chic. Plus size behind down to the Real Women Summit in Chicago! Yes, the first annual summit dedicated to all things curvy! My good friend Catherine Schuller (you should know who she is!) sent me an amazing press release that I just HAVE to share with you.
First, let me explain to you what The Real Women Summit is. This event is all about YOU, the plus size woman in America. The Real Women Summit’s goal is to unite, strengthen, and revolutionize the plus size woman in America. Not a day passes when we hear or read something about losing weight, obesity, fat acceptance, and the lack of fashion options. No longer do you have to feel like an outcast! The Real Women Summit is here!
The Real Women Summit seeks to redefine society’s perception of beauty. With more than 60% of American women sizes 14 and above, the Real Women Summit vows to stand up and take position as the average, real woman in America! The summit is an idea to bring plus size women of all ages, races and backgrounds together to strengthen each other in the struggle and revolutionize the acceptance of beauty in America!
So now that you are excited about this event, let me tell you where it is going to be! The first Annual Real Women Summit will be on June 26-28th, 2009 in Chicago, IL at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare. The weekend consists of workshops, motivational speakers, an expo, discussion panel, fashion show and more to come.
The Real Women Summit will feature twenty-four Signature Models from across the US, award winning International poet and actress Sonya Renee, plus model and actress Christina Mendez, spoken word artist Tamara Blue, and Chicago native musicians Spq-Her.
Rates for the summit include accommodations, fashion shows, discussion panel entry, and four workshop opportunities, with more to be announced. Rates range from $400 to $600, depending on the number of women lodging per room.
