Botswana’s plus size fashionistas!
To quench our plus size fashion quest, we, GaTsh Fros called two gorgeous plus size beauties bitten by the fashion bug, Bonolo Oabile and Kelly Kathurima, to revive the world of plus size fashion!
From there onwards we encouraged them to make this a movement for all plus size fashion enthusiasts all around the world and continue sensitizing, giving styling tips and showing “what to wear, how to wear it, and where” for the voluptuous fashionistas.
They came up with the name AfriCurves.
In a world that encourages a more western petite and slimmer figure, AfriCurves is a perfectly fitting name that embraces an African voluptuous figure that is slammed by many!
AfriCurves are out to be a voice for plus sized fashion, executed with a classic twist and sheer sophistication that heavily meets urban African chic. The fashion duo has a unique way of showing their poise, and elegant plus size figures in a way that screams “I am voluptuous and confident!”
Follow this fashion forward duo on Instagram AfriCurves_BW and see what they have to offer in terms of the best styling advice for full-figured women, fashion tips, where to buy plus size clothing, the latest must try trends, and how to wear them!
# 1: Strategically work with prints, shapes and details to make the eye go up and down.
