Artist Fernando Ferreiro’s exhibition in May 2016

When I heard that Artist Fernando Ferreiro would be presenting his work in Cordova, Spain in May 2016 I just had to blog about it. Ferreiro told me that the director of the exhibition hall of the hotel contacted him through Facebook and offered him the opportunity to exhibit there.

The conditions seemed good and they closed the deal. He was given complete freedom to choose the art so he decided to take this opportunity and show his pictures of curvy women and give a greater voice to this community.

The talented artist wants to make several new drawings during this time focusing more on the body and not just the face of the model, such as “Ana and the Sea ” and “The girl with the wet shirt” which left me speechless when I saw it, the detail is amazing.

His new portraits will include models María Jiménez Pacífico, Denise Bidot, Michelle Rudan and Linda Caffa. I was so curious how he chose his models so I asked him and his answer did not disappoint me…he told me “ they represent the kind of woman I want to capture in my drawings, who are curvy, have natural beauty, charisma, and confidence” of all of his paintings he chose to honor the Curvy Woman and that will surely not be forgotten, by a community that is trying so hard to be noticed and rightfully so.

If you have a chance and are in that area go to the exhibition and support an artist that believes that a curvy woman can be beautiful too!

Blossom Boutique honors the Curvy woman!

anagneww

It is so important to love yourself and your body. Curvy ladies listen to me, put on your favorite lingerie and dance to your favorite music! If you are full-figured, you have many of the same options as women who wear smaller sizes. Many women, especially those with a bigger chest often prefer corsets because this gives them a chance to show off their chest and to make some curves when the corset embraces the waist, giving you that great voluptuous look. I, myself think Teddys and one piece negligee sets also work well.

If you’re a bigger woman, there are many shops that deal with just the type of things you will be looking to purchase. One of the best shops I have found is called Blossom Boutique in Puerto Rico, they offer a selection of lingerie for all different types of women.

The owner of the Boutique who also has a segment in the TV Show Fashion House, Nanette Rodriguez is one that thinks that Curvy women are beautiful too and that they should be treated with dignity and respect…this is music to my ears. Last week she unveiled her first curvy poster to honor the Full Figured Woman, Curvy Model Ana Garcia was the model chosen as the image with one of Vanessa Velez images from one of their shoots for Esposa Moderna Magazine.

Rodriguez gave an emotional speech about how she thinks that every woman is beautiful thin or curvy at the unveiling, that left many with tears in their eyes. The guests included Limaris Correa, one of the producers of the high rated TV Show Fashion House, a very charming lady, we talked a lot of how she acknowledges that Curvy is beautiful too.

There was champagne, great conversation, great friends together having the best time, indeed it was a wonderful afternoon.
