The second in our series of presentations is "Fatshion as Action - Having Fun With Clothes While Changing the World!" and is being offered on Saturday, March 25, 2017 at 11:00 AM PST (12:00 PM Central and 2:00 PM EST) presented by NAAFA Board Member, Tigress Osborn. Tigress is a size celebration activist, model and performer who has produced fashion and nightlife events for fat community since 2008. She will be joined in conversation by acclaimed fashion designer Bertha Pearl of Size Queen Clothing and supersize model Saucye West, founder of #FatAndFree.

The webinar objectives are that:

  • Participants will examine marketing vocabulary and fashion jargon as it relates to fat and plus size bodies, including critical discussion of what is often an important distinction between between plus size fashion and fat positive fashion.
  • Participants will learn how fashion works as activism by increasing fat visibility in mainstream media, and we will discuss how this helps or hinders fat freedom.
  • Participants will gain behind-the-scenes insights into the world of fatshion from two prominent and well-respected fat positive fashion stars.
  • Participants will be given resources for finding, affording and creating fat positive looks for people of all genders.
