Yet another sign that the curvy/plus-size revolution is forging on. “House of Curves” is a new cable series about to premiere on the We-TV network June 13th at 10:00 pm eastern time.
“The six, hour-long episodes, follows the passionate and hilarious trials of Atlanta-based, plus-size clothing designer Kenyatta Jones as she kicks down the doors of fashion with her six-inch stilettos, teetering on the precipice of making it big in the fierce world of fashion. Kenyatta is the CEO of Bella René and has designed her dream wardrobe for plus-sized women. With her two best friends from college, an assistant with an attitude and her mother as her main investor, Kenyatta and company will do anything to expand their brand. Mishaps, misadventures and in-house bickering may get in the way of the dream, but in the end, her girls always have Kenyatta’s back. The team is put to the test when Kenyatta and crew compete for recognition in the fashion capital of the world, New York City.”
Unfortunately reading some of the YouTube comments on the promo I’m also reminded about how cruel many people can be about curvy versus skinny and what they consider beauty. We need to continue to create programming and an understanding that there is no one definition of beauty. Weight is only an issue as it pertains to a health issue, beauty comes in all many, many forms.
