Can I say EPIC? What about ELITE? Tierra Sedgemore, creator of #sizesexy clothing delivered an upscale, curve rocking show to remember on Sunday, May 3 at The Uptown Loft in Toronto, Canada and I’ve got the inspiring review for you right here.
If you want to go fast, go alone. if you want to go far, go together. – by Robin Jones Gunn
And that’s exactly what she did. With a team of professionals, models, friends and supporters alike, Tierra’s show presented a designer (MiniMaxiMidi), a boutique (SexyPlus) and her new line of #sizesexy apparel.

I arrived with this handsome guy (husband Howard), and went straight backstage since I was lucky enough to have been invited by Tierra to present my collection at her show.

The fashion show coordinator, choreographer and SIZE SEXY brand ambassador Ophilia from Ophilia’s Kurves, was cool as a cucumber ensuring all elements for a flawless runway performance were in place. Her attention to detail, and caring nature ensured not only a flawlessly executed show, but also that the models were taken care of and had food and refreshments.

The evening’s charismatic MC Nikki Morgan kept the energy high and kicked off the show with a spoken word performance by her talented brother, Dwane Morgan who urged us all to love women for everything they are, and not only for their “parts”. This was quite moving and he delivered a powerful message with conviction.

The fashion show segment exploded into gear with the latest collection by designer Annika featuring bold, beautiful and unique designs by MiniMaxiMidi.
We were all so proud of Annika as she was led out by plus model Ro Reid.

Next up, signers Trish and Kim Davis hypnotized us all with their voices and stage presence, with music by DJ Pete Funk. They’re gonna be famous!
I’m a little partial to the next segment, which was the SexyPlus Clothing fashion show, because as the owner of this boutique I am always blown away, and so tremendously proud when I see my collection coming down a runway, and experiencing the contagious confidence of the incredible models. All styles shown below are available at http://www.sexyplusclothing.com, in store at 5100 Maingate Drive, Unit 14 in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, 905-625-0813.

Finally, I would like to personally thank Tierra for including me/SexyPlus Clothing in this historical evening, and to all the models for their time, hard work, devotion to the industry, and of course, for their fabulous curvy bodies because there would be no show without them!
It took an incredible team of professionals and a lot of hard work and passion to deliver this evening of excellence. In addition to those mentioned above, these amazing people made the evening as special as it was.
