Like I told you curvy fashionistas, when I announced the return Ashley Stewart as our presenting sponsor, the expo was so nice… They had to do it twice! With that being said, please note that you will hear a lot of names from last year. Now don’t get it twisted, we have plenty of new- new for you but in the words of someone smart and great; “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!”
Today, I am sharing some information that has me hyped, because I live for the moment when I can be in the midst of this amazing woman. I am honored to announce the return of one of the plus size community’s most recognized and respected women. That woman is none other than the hostess with the mostest, Chenese Lewis!
Yes, Chenese did such an amazing job at last year’s TCFStyle Expo that we had to invite her back.
Chenese Lewis is known and loved around the world for her voice as a positive body image and self-esteem advocate. She is the epitome of a sophisticated woman, entrepreneur, and entertainer who has gained international attention as a highly sought-after keynote speaker and expert commentator.
In 2003, Chenese made history as the first woman crowned Miss Plus America. That title gave her career momentum in the plus size market. Chenese has since worked with various plus-size brands in different capacities. Chenese has hosted large-scale fashion events during LA Fashion Week and she travels abroad every summer to St. Croix to host the main event at FashionLinkVI Fashion Weekend. An OG in the plus industry, Chenese has appeared as an expert on Dr. Phil, Huffington Post Live, and quoted in USA Today. Ebony.com stated that Chenese is “integral in laying the foundation for plus size fashion!
In addition to fashion, Chenese is also a trailblazer in the radio field. In 2008 she introduced PLUS Model Radio, the #1 podcast for plus-size women, which she served as host for five years, before renaming her podcast The Chenese Lewis Show. Her podcast features in-depth interviews for curvy women including up-close and personal conversations with a wide range of industry experts.
Honestly, I could totally write a book about how amazing Chenese is, all of the contributions she has made and accolades she has received. However, I will chill and just encourage you to come out and experience the greatness that is Chenese Lewis for yourself!
We are so honored to have Chenese Lewis Back as our 2016 TCFStyle Expo Host!
