WELCOME Thank you for taking the time to read our publication. The month of June was a major success with Desi and Anna in NYC! Full Figured Fashion Week overflowed with festivities with the Full Figured Fashion Week Finale and Awards show, where the Margaux Kouture Spring/Summer Collection for 2011 was launched. We ended the month with a bang at the Four Points Sheraton, LAX at an exclusive Runway Show featuring the Solace and Margaux Kouture Collections. A Clothes Mind is looking forward to being part of the great opportunities in place and would not have been able to come this far without our faithful supporters. We are truly humbled and grateful for all that you do. To our models and our dedicated staff, we could not have done this without you. You are the motivation for us to do great things and our inspiration to achieve the unthinkable. This month’s publication will take you through “OUR” exhilarating journey.

Full Figured Fashion Week 2011 New York City We must say that Full Figured Fashion Week was a blast. Just being around so many beautiful, voluptuous, curvy women was simply amazing and we took in all it had to offer from the Pre-Event Launch with Press and Buyers, Curves at Sea White on White Cruise, the Full Figured and Fabulous Runway Competition and last but not least the Finale Runway and Awards Show. The various fusions of fashion hit the runway along with the many beautiful and talented models ripping the runway. A Clothes Mind was honored to have been a showcase participant where we launched our Margaux Kouture Spring/ Summer 2011 Collection. We would like to give Ms. Gwen Devoe and her amazing team and staff a huge and sincere thank you for having us. The festivities left us speechless and were well put together beyond our expectations; we must say that we were treated like royalty. If anyone missed this experience then it is a musthave and must-see, the dates for next year in New York City have already been announced which are July 13th – 16th so plan to attend now.

The Curvy Fashionista “There were so many more looks and designers that were workable, but these were my most memorable looks that I loved!”

Curves and Chaos “I loved all of the designs, especially the Queen Grace Collection and the Margaux Kouture dresses.”

Little Lime Dress

“Ladies, Margaux Kouture caught me off guard. The collection revealed evening gowns and party dresses with high-end couture influences. Short dresses, gowns, sequins, shine, and tons of drama; one after the next came down and I felt like I couldn't tweet fast enough.”

XOXOX Netta P

“Margaux Kouture was trying some new things, which I appreciate! A lot of ruffles in this collection and again, I’m loving the mermaid hemlines:”

Tumblr “There were plenty of designers on the runway but I'm only going to name the ones that truly caught my eye:”
