Bigger & Better Thangs (BBT) Entertainment and HSS&A, Inc. are bringing the hype to the "curvier" community with the first annual The Art of Curves plus-size fashion show.

"The Art of Curves, is not just a fashion show, it's a movement," said Blacque Southerland, CEO of HSS&A, Inc. "It's will show the world that plus-size fashion is not just one dimensional."
