OneStopPlus.com, a brand under the Redcats USA umbrella and the premiere online destination for curvy women who demand high style in plus size fashion, will produce the first ever plus-size-only runway show during New York Fall Fashion Week.

Set for September 15th, 2010 at The Atrium in Frederick P. Rose Hall, home of Jazz at Lincoln Center, famed curvy models will walk the OneStopPlus.com show featuring the latest collections for Spring 2011.

OneStopPlus.com is taking a stand to prove that curvy women are equally as beautiful and as fashionable as their size two counterparts with a plus-size runway show coinciding with the high-fashion shows located at Lincoln Center. The noteworthy event will showcase top trend-driven styles, featured on prominent models such as: Lizzie Miller, and Tocarra Jones, who have been chosen to flaunt their curves down the runway. Emme, the plus-size icon and brand ambassador to OneStopPlus.com, will be hosting the red carpet.

"The recent confluence of events and energy within the plus-size movement makes this the perfect time for OneStopPlus.com to debut at New York Fashion Week," says Stephanie Sobel, President of OneStopPlus.com. "Top plus-size models like Crystal Renn and Lizzie Miller in Italian Vogue, French Elle, Glamour, Marie Claire, and others, validate that this is the magic moment for plus sizes."

OneStopPlus.com is a pioneer in the ever-changing fashion industry, proving that the 62% of American Women who are plus-size can also experience the high-fashion lifestyle.

Zahir Babvani, VP of Design of OneStopPlus.com says, "This show is a collaborative effort to provide the extraordinary community of plus-size American women with the uncompromising style that they have always deserved but never received. It's about inclusion and fashion democracy: fashion risk-taking and empowerment. No more seeing what you can't have; this is a fashion party that invites and inspires everyone."

Taking a dramatic stance on behalf of women around the world, OneStopPlus.com highlights the plus-size revolution that is currently taking place in fashion, inviting the industry to attend the exclusively themed Belle Epoque, the Golden Age plus-size fashion show. Brands to be showcased include the best in American and European plus-size designs.

"We find ourselves in a new golden age that is plus-size fashion," says Galina Monaco, Designer of OneStopPlus.com. "Befitting our collection, elements of Belle Epoque are present with touches of feminine lace, rich drapery, decorative florals and, of course, the gilded shine of slight sequin embellishment."
