The “Igigi Black Magic Gown” Makes the Red Carpet at the 62nd Annual Emmy Awards
I was just looking over my facebook timeline when I saw the post for plus-size designer Igigi’s page. One of her new gowns made it on the red carpet last night at the 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. Actress KayCee Stroh, of “High School Musical”, arrived wearing the new “Black Magic Gown” by Igigi. Just last week one of my Plus Academy Virginia students, Courtney Mills, wore the exact same Igigi “Black Magic Gown” to the “Size is Sexy” event in Atlanta, GA. I’m personally super happy about this for Igigi since I just wore one of her similiar gowns myself to my Plus Academy Virginia Open House.
I had my eye on the “Black Magic Gown” too as my next purchase. It was premiered on the runway this past June at “Full Figured Fashion Week” in New York. I’m sure it’s going to fly off the racks now. Igigi’s dresses are so elegant and feel so good on.
This is great news for the plus size community. Many celebs are wearing her designs. Actress Gabourey Sidibe was recently spotted at an event wearing an Igigi creation too. I hope to see more and more of our favorite plus-size designer creations continue to be shown on future red carpet events!
