#5 – Celebrating Curves – The British Plus-Size Awards.
2013 inspired world-wide recognition of the curvy revolution with the inception of The British Plus-Size Awards. Founder, Linda Koch set out to create an event that would coincide with her Miss Plus Size International pageant and the awards show was born.
“Over the last couple of years, we have seen a significant rise in the amount of plus size businesses and personalities and we feel the time has come to reward outstanding service and inspirational people. We want to recognise those who have broken barriers in the plus size industry, an industry that is being utilised by more and more people.” – Linda Koch
