UPDATE: ProjectCURVES™ Is Coming to Richmond, Virginia: Saturday, April 9th, 2011


I have been biting my tongue for months withholding this wonderful info. Myself on behalf of Gwen DeVoe will be hosting a ProjectCURVES™ here in Richmond on Saturday, April 9th. ProjectCURVES™ is a one-day bootcamp workshop that will teach participants how to have a SUCCESSFUL career in plus modeling. Did you know that ProjectCURVES™, the first plus model bootcamp, is part of the DeVoe Signature Events and Plus Academy brands? We’re back, with a vengeance, giving YOU the instruction YOU need, the way YOU want it. Can’t commit to a full program in Virginia? Take our one day intensive bootcamp in VA 4/9/2011. The ORIGINAL! Our sessions are led by some of the best known names in their industries,  who will give practical advice based on their experiences as insiders in this business. (Note: Due to my upcoming busy schedule, I will only be doing the ProjectCURVES™ program this Spring and not The Plus Academy VIRGINIA series. So if you want to get all the training for your future plus-modeling career, please take advantage of this opportunity!).

I started my modeling career out by attending the ProjectCURVES™ in Atlanta in 2006 and The Plus Academy in New York back in 2007. (Both were under the direction of Ms. Gwen DeVoe). My outcome speaks for itself. I have come this far because of attending these events. So now is your chance also.

If you have dreamed of becoming a plus model, or you’ve been working the local fashion scene and want to explore a career as a plus model, attend this all day workshop, you won’t be disappointed. Our Dream Team of experts in the plus size, fashion, beauty and entertainment industries will be on hand at each session to provide invaluable tips on how to be a successful plus model.
