2017 TCFStyle Expo: The Re-Cap

OMG! I can not believe the TCFStyle Expo has come and gone already. Of course, the anticipation is building already for 2018. Can we say "Geeked"? 2017 marked the second year I attend The TCFStyle Expo. I can not state how excited I am to see the success and growth of the expo. With twice as many vendors, twice the event space, fabulous panels, and can we say AMAZ-Ball sponsors.

Ok, ok.... Sorry but I am still so excited. The TCF Style Expo was created by the one and only Marie Denee of The Curvy Fashionista to bring vendors, models, influencers, and designers together for fabuplus time.

The TCFStyle Expo is two days of vendor shopping all in one space with great entertainment, panels, socializing, and just a good ol time. Can you image over 50 vendors all in one space? Then add in the live entertainment from Pretty Big Movement, Ashlee Haze, and Terrell Mercer. OH! Definitely, can not forget to shout out The DJ Team for providing "Issa Vibe" atmosphere with the jams. 

Now that we have some info on the TCF Expo let's get to all of the highlights of the weekend.

MVP Collections

The first stop of the expo was a meet and greet with Mo Vaughn of MVP Collections at Destination XL. 2017 is the first year the TCFStyle Expo has highlighted the Big & Tall Man. Can we all say EPIC!! MVP Collections will be sold at a Destination XL soon, so if you have a Big & Tall man in your life, so keep an eye out for it's debut. The collection is centered around creating the Stylish Big and Tall Man. The Big & Tall Man can be stylish with blazer cut just for him with a t-shirt and moto jeans. Yes, we can say he will be fly.

It was such a pleasure to meet Mo Vaughn and the models. Would you like to know what is better than this? Watching the models in action.  During the expo, MVP Collections hosted a runaway show displaying items from the collection.

The Vendors

How can we talk about the expo without mentioning the vendors. Ladies, the TCFStyle Expo is definitely your one stop shop. Of course the TCFStyle Expo is all about the fashion and style, in addition they thought all about us ladies. From the hair products, to makeup, to undies, and of the accessories to style our purchases. Can we all just say heaven under this roof!

The Panels

Along with the great runway shows and vendors, the panels were lit. The open dialogue in the panels allowed you to walk away with new knowledge and empowerment. Knowing there is a community that look and feel just like you is empowering in itself. The TCFStyle expo is just the icing on the cake to connect you with women across the country just like you.

Happy Hours

Lastly, you missed out on happy hours. Happy hours to socialize with vendors, designers, influencers all while jamming to the tones of The DJ Team. The vibe of connecting with women over the love of fashion truly makes the soul happy.

It's A Wrap

And just like that, The TCFStyle Expo is a wrap. I think it is official to state the TCFStyle Expo is the FASHION PHENOMENON OF THE SOUTH!! Do you all agree? If you have not attended a TCFStyle Expo then now is the time to start saving the date as the 2018 expo begins its production stages. Mark your calendars ladies, we hope to see you next year.
