Christina Mendez has accomplished so much throughout her career as a plus-size model. The curvy powerhouse has commanded several runways (BET), appeared in national campaigns (Ashley Stewart), and she’s graced the pages of print and virtual magazines (DailyVenusDiva.com). In addition to everything that she’s accomplished so far, she was JUST announced as the latest spokesmodel for The International Fuller Woman Network.
The Network’s founder Cassandra Jones-McBryde shared the following this morning:
“Each year we painstakingly put together a media campaign for the International Fuller Woman Network that not only is stunning and memorable but features a true “Fuller Woman.” For the US, We found that in the late, great Mia Amber Davis Yard, who was the spokesmodel for our expo until her passing. We were fortunate to have the beautiful and talented Allison McGevna as the next spokesmodel for the past two years. We were so inspired by her style, grace and humanity as we were with Mia.
We are pleased to announce our newest spokes model for the network Christina Mendez!”
If you’ve attended the event, then you know in the past it has been promoted as a three-day Expo, but for 2016, it’s being rebranded as The International Fuller Woman Festival. Consider this announcement the official countdown to the outdoor event that takes place in Detroit, Michigan.
Since we’re a long time supporter and sponsor of the Network’s U.S. Expo, we’ve known about this for quite some time, and we are ecstatic. Because of the thought that goes into selecting the event’s spokesmodel, this appointment proves what many of us already know, Christina Mendez is a force within the plus size community. We applaud all of her accomplishments, and we know her star will continue to shine brightly.
We can’t wait to share more images from the festive campaign!
