Marie Denee (@MarieDenee), better known as ‘The Curvy Fashionista’ is a fashion blogger, freelance fashion writer and a respected voice and influencer in the plus size fashion arena.
With over eleven years of experience, Marie has made it her mission to continuously show women that they can be Curvy, Confident and Chic. In 2008, Marie founded TheCurvyFashionista.com after realizing that when it came to great stylish clothing for plus size women, options were limited. Armed with an MBA in marketing, fashion experience and pure passion for empowering women of every shape and size, Marie has turned TheCurvyFashionista.com into a must-visit destination for more than 400,000 visitors each month.
In 2015, Marie founded The Curvy Fashionista Style Expo in Atlanta, which drew over 400 women to shop their favorite plus size brands, socialize and sit in on panels led y some of the industry’s leading experts. This year’s expo will be held on August 12-13, 2016 with participation from brands such as Ashley Stewart, Lane Bryant and Chic and Curvy.
On this episode, I talk to Marie about how she’s become one of the most recognizable voices in the plus size market and fashion blogging as a whole and we talk about how she’s grown into and evolved with her brand.
