“Each year NAAFA holds a fund-raising convention that includes a general membership meeting, workshops, a vendor fair, a fashion show, awards dinner, dance, pool parties and more.
The annual NAAFA Fashion Show has become one of the key events of the convention. In the Fashion Show, we showcase plus-size designers and vendors, promote educational opportunities by awarding a Fashion Design scholarship, and encourage convention attendees to participate as models. Rather than hiring professional models for the Fashion Show, it’s our desire to promote and foster self-acceptance amongst our membership by showing them new skills such as how to walk down a runway, help them with coordinating accessories with the fashions being
shown, teach them new make-up tips and hair tips with the help from schools such as the San Francisco School of Esthetics and Cosmetology. These shows have been life-changing events for almost everyone that has participated in them. It allows participants to see themselves in a positive light, walk with confidence in an environment of acceptance and build self-esteem reinforcing that they are beautiful just as they are.”
