“The Curvy Girl Project” was created when a Detroit public school teacher asked Sharon Dumas, founder of Full & Fabulous, if she had any incentives to motivate girls to have better attendance and get better grades in school. Ms. Dumas already had the Get Fit for Change Healthy Lifestyle program in several DPS schools that promote health, beauty, self-esteem; she decided to add criteria for the girls to be a part of her program that would include motivating the girls to have better attendance and improved grade point average.
This debutante ball has been especially created to promote health, beauty and self-esteem in plus size/curvy girls ages 9-17. The girls go through 10 weeks of nutrition, self-esteem, modeling classes. We also hire a dance instructor to teach them an opening dance number that they open the show with.
Each girl is required to perform a talent and participate in the mother and daughter fashion show. 1-4pm Doubletree hotel Dearborn, tickets $15 special guest Plus Size Feature Model -Shelly King, of the TLC Network TV Show “Big Brooklyn Style”“Big Brooklyn Style” kicked off on the &TLC Network on Tuesday, May 29th at 10:00 pm Est.For an 8 episode run **Check your local network for air time and specific channel.
