Launched in the Summer of 2012, Big Deal Toronto is an annual gathering of plus size women in the city. What began as a simple blogger-hosted “Shop-Their-Closets” sale has evolved into an annual celebration of body positive and environmentally sustainable fashion.
Founder and Organizer Karen Ward writes the popular blog Curvy Canadian and owns the #1 Toronto plus size store Your Big Sister’s Closet. With record numbers attending last year’s event, Ward is working on expanding the event in a number of ways to help foster the growing plus size fashion community in Toronto.
Our popular blogger closet sale is returning, featuring closet selections from a number of fabulous plus size fashion bloggers including Clothes and Shit, Sheena Snively, Jessica Biffi, Flaws of Couture, Curves & Curls, FatintheCity, Candi Apple Couture, Cloud14+, Petite Plus, Meow, Erica Exposed, Big Hips Red Lips, Geek with Style, Ursa Major +, Ruby Nite, SexyPlus Clothing, Peonies & Paper Dolls, Ginger Won’t Snap, and Round Raglan Road.
Our 2014 event will take place on October 19th from 1-5pm at 3030 Dundas West, a great lounge/bar in the Junction neighbourhood of Toronto.
New this year is the option to purchase a $20 VIP ticket which gives you an hour earlier admission than the general public (at noon) and a complimentary gift bag. These tickets are limited to the first 50 registrants, so book now! General admission tickets are $5, and can be booked online or purchased at the door.
We look forward to welcoming you to the event, and sharing in the joy that comes from dressing to express your true self!!!
