Remember Egypt Ufele? She’s the 10-year-old little girl who created her own plus-size clothing line after she was bullied in school for being overweight.
In February she became the only child designer to dress curvy models during New York Fashion Week and just this past weekend Ufele was honored at the Full Figured Fashion Week® 7th Anniversary Runway Showcase & Industry Awards Ceremony presented by The Curvy Fashionista.
Ufele was presented with the Jr Trailblazer of the Year award for launching her own plus-size clothing line, ChubiiLine, a play on the “chubby” taunt classmates used to throw at her in school. And the pre-teen shared the proud moment on Instagram with the video below.
The tiny entrepreneur wasn’t the only one to slay at the Full Figured Fashion Week Runway Showcase however. We happened to be on the scene during Saturday night’s ceremony and we captured many plus-size beauties who stole the show in various summer fashions.
Check out the plus-size slayage on the next few pages. Congrats Egypt!
