Detroit, MI- We are proud to invite you to be a part of the Second Annual International Fuller Woman Expo held on September 18, 2010 at the Westin Book Cadillac Hotel in Downtown-Detroit, Michigan.

The Fuller Woman Network is dedicated to empowering women to recognize her internal and external beauty; to educate and motivate through workshops and seminars while providing information on the products and/or services available to them through companies around the country.

In 2008 hundreds of vendors, exhibitors, models, presenters, performers and patrons descended on The Living Arts Centre in Mississauga, Ontario to be apart of, the first ever plus size woman consumer trade show, The Fuller Woman Expo. In 2009, we launched the International Fuller Woman Expo at the St Regis Hotel in Detroit, Michigan . We were honored to have as our keynote speaker Personal Power Expert Mrs. Delores Pressley, founder of Plus USA Woman Beauty Pageant and Convention and The Born Successful Institute. For our inaugural event, hundreds of people from across the country were in attendance. We had sponsors from all around the world who supported this worthwhile event. Media outlets in the Detroit Metropolitan area joined us in the celebration such as the Detroit Free Press and The Michigan Chronicle with features in the Detroit Fashion Pages and on Fox 2 News.

In 2010, we are pleased to welcome talk show host, comedian and actress Ms. Kim Coles as our keynote speaker. She is best known for her portrayal of Sinclair on the hit television show, “Living Single” , a role that garnered her 4 NAACP Image award nominations. Ms.Coles is the host of the popular game show “Pay it Forward” on BET, making her the 1st African American Woman to ever host a primetime game show.  Ms.Coles is also the co-host of  “My Black is Beautiful”, a talk show that celebrates the diverse and unique qualities in African American women.

To add to the many positive initiatives she is involved with,  Ms. Coles will speak at the Fuller Woman Expo about her latest empowerment series for women called, “G.I.F.T.S.”  which is an acronym for Gratitude, Intention, Forgiveness,Triumph and Self love.  This unique series is geared toward unleashing the potential we have inside of all of us.

Don’t miss your opportunity to connect with products and services that cater to the “Fuller” woman, from the inside out. You will be recharged, motivated and inspired by the workshops and seminars that will be presented from leading authorities from across the country. A staple in the expo in both Canada and the United States is the “Curves in Motion” fashion showcase(sponsored last year by Lane Bryant Outlet) featuring designers and talent from around the world. Prepare to once again be pampered in the “Curvy Girl Lounge” with free massages, free-make over’s, free gifts and much more!
