88 Handbags + CurvyCon


88 Handbags was a part of this year’s Curvycon, during which we showcased our new, longer crossbody strap catered to the plus sized community. Each purse will now include both a standard size strap, along with a longer strap, catering to the plus sized customer. Having a longer strap will help women of all shapes and sizes enjoy an 88 crossbody bag even more than before. 88 Handbags will be one of the first brands to offer a longer strap for the plus sized community, paving the way for even more changes to come.

CURVYcon is a two day event that brings plus size brands, fashionistas, shopaholics, bloggers and YouTubers into one space to chat curvy, shop curvy and embrace curvy. During this time, visitors embrace their curves, do a little shopping, and tackle topics such as confidence, fashion and style, health, fitness, dating, body positivity.

Hosted by Plus Sized Fashion Bloggers Chastity Garner, of GarnerStyle, and CeCe Olisa, of Plus Sized Princess, CurvyCon took place June 17th and 18th in NYC at the Metropolitan Pavilion West.
