In 2016, Latasha Ngwube’s Aboutthatcurvylife.com (ATCL) made history at
Heineken Lagos Fashion and Design Week, as the #ATCL Collective presented plus-size models that stormed the runway
rocking clothes from five designers showcasing plus-size collections in a
defiant celebration of all things curvy.

And now, ATCL is about to make history again at Glitz Africa Fashion Week
2017, which is taking place in Accra, Ghana from October 5th – October
8th. The ATCL Collective will be presenting three Nigerian brands – one
menswear and two womenswear. This will be the first ever inclusion of
plus-size fashion apparel in the history of Glitz Africa Fashion Week.

The designers curated for the Aboutthatcurvylife Collective include: Abaya
Lagos by Salihat (womenswear), Nori Clothing (womenswear) and Assian
(menswear).

Each of these brands have carved a unique niche for themselves as true
body positive champions that understand the need for fashion and style at
all sizes. It was on this basis that Aboutthatcurvylife.com’s founder,
Latasha Ngwube chose them. They in turn have communicated their enthusiasm
for the opportunity to showcase their brands at Glitz Africa Fashion Week
2017.

The ATCL Collective is showing on Saturday the 7th of October at Glitz
Africa Fashion Week’s runway in Kempinski Hotel Gold Coast City, Accra,
Ghana.

We are also pleased to announce the first ever ATCL Collective
ambassadors, Anita Matey (Ghanaian NY-based plus size fashion blogger,
women’s advocate, and creator of Foreign Curves blog) and AJ Sarpong
(Ghanaian Media personality).

We chose these two individuals because they share similar goals with us –
using our platforms to spread messages of body positivity through
creative forms of expression.

Anita, who will be leading the ATCL Collective online campaign for the
duration of the event says, “I am so thrilled to know that
Aboutthatcurvylife collective is going to be a part of Glitz Fashion week.
It’s historic for me to even be able to witness this while in Brooklyn,
that plus size women, plus size fashion is now being recognized and taken
seriously in the African fashion industry. It only goes up from here and
now I’m even more eager to see what the African fashion industry has in
store for the future now that it’s size inclusive!!!!”

AJ will not only serve as an ambassador, she will also be one of the
models on the runway during the ATCL Collective showcase. Speaking on her
involvement, she says “I’m beyond excited about the AboutthatCurvylife
Collective showcase at Glitz Africa because it is set to change the
narrative about owning our Curves in Fashion. It’s time to celebrate our
Curves for what they are beautiful, desirable and alluring!”
