The mission of DeVoe Signatur’ Events is to empower plus size women through the production of celebratory events filled with workshops and seminars in curvy lifestyle issues addressing health & fitness, career development, fashion, beauty, and style. The company, along with curvy guest celebrity hosts, will journey across the nation with “Dangerous Curves…The Tour” –Hips, Heels, & Curves, promoting and advocating positive body imagery, self-confidence, and curvy sisterhood. Despite 62% of American women and 75% of European woman wearing size 12 or above, their fashion needs are grossly ignored by elite mainstream designers and manufacturers. Women with curves are speaking out and demanding equal opportunity in high end fashion. DeVoe Signatur’ Events has heard their cry and will bring “Dangerous Curves…The Tour” –Hips, Heels, & Curves to Washington, DC (2004); Richmond, VA (Spring/Summer 2004); Philadelphia PA (Summer 2004).
