Torrid NYFW Runway Show September 12, 2017

Torrid NYFW Runway Show

Retail brand Torrid came to town to show that their collections and models could deliver a message. The message received was that plus size models and those that design for them deliver the goods. Those runway walks were truly mesmerizing. Torrid provides clothing for women size 10-30 US. These are stylish garments and they are made to fit.

Torrid dual-purposed this event by requiring the top ten finalists in its Model Competition to walk the runway. Imagine, your first big time gig is NYFW. They handled it like pros! The next phase of the model competition will reduce the number to four participants. Torrid will announce who the four semi-finalists are in late October, 2017.
