The Full Figured Industry Awards


The Plus Size & Big and Tall industry is a multi-billion dollar industry that deserves some recognition. Models, designers, event coordinators, bloggers, publications, retailers, ect. have all worked extremely hard to get to this point of being recognized in mainstream.


In November 2019, we successfully launched the Inaugural Full Figured Industry Awards (also known as The FFIAs).  The FFIAs is a prestigious ceremony of awards and of distinguished recognition honoring the craftsmanship and commitment to excellence across various platforms spanning the full-figured industry.
