This is what everyone has been waiting for!

I'm thrilled to see that Richard Lew has posted the image gallery from last night's Independent Designer Showcase at FFFWeek:

The best part is, Katherine Roll walked the runway for no less than six designers, and her images are outstanding. She sported one of the prettiest hairstyles I've ever seen her wear -- a fresh, delicate, girlish 'do that makes her look more beautiful than ever.

The first four designers in the showcase aren't identified in the image galleries (thought the latter designer are, via photographs that show their logos on the screen), so I'll note the designers that can be identified so far.

My very favourite outfit that Katherine wore is from the show's first designer. These are such beautiful pictures! Katherine wears a sheer, fitted, lacy grey top and an adorable purple skirt. The most enchanting aspect is that she holds a bouquet of flowers in her hand.

The second outfit is also deliciously pretty, showing her in a white top with a cute bow, and wearing a black miniskirt. This is from Lavender's Jungle:

I think Katherine's sexiest attire is this very abbreviated golden Masaari dress, which makes her resemble a lioness. I love the fact that so many of the FFFWeek outfits show off her gorgeous arms and legs.

Katherine always looks fantastic in purple, as exemplified in this outfit from Chinoo:

A figure-hugging, fitted dress from Jibri:

And finally, a black outfit with a flowy wrap. This is from the second designer in the showcase:

Everyone will be delighted to see that in addition to Katherine, Jenn Purviance also walked the runway at this show, for three different designers.

In another testament to the size-celebratory nature of FFFWeek, two of her outfits showed off her incredibly gorgeous legs.

This adorable grey top and coral-pink polka-dot skirt are from the fourth designer in the showcase:

An even more pro-curvy outfit, this one showing off Jenn's soft, shapely arms as well as her legs, comes from Lavender's Jungle:

http://www.richlew.com/Fashion/FFFWeek12/Indie-Designers-Showcase/23591361_5gpq7K#!i=1908719361&k=R3fHLvD&lb=1&s=XL

And last, the second designer in the showcase sent Jenn down the runway in this red jumpsuit.

http://www.richlew.com/Fashion/FFFWeek12/Indie-Designers-Showcase/23591361_5gpq7K#!i=1908488117&k=8TrLMTZ&lb=1&s=XL

It's amazing to see so many designers dressing such gorgeously curvy, genuinely full-figured models as Katherine and Jenn in such size-celebratory, pro-curvy, figure-baring fashions. Bravo to the models for their amazing appearances on the runway, and kudos to FFFWeek for standing another perfect plus-size runway show.

I've been watching some of the FFFWeek coverage on the Web, and came across two sources that provide extra images from the runway

Marie Claire magazine has a nice write-up about the event:

http://www.marieclaire.com/blog/full-figured-fashion-week-2

It comes with an amazing picture of Jenn P and Katherine side by side, with Katherine looking gorgeous in her Chinoo outfit.

http://www.marieclaire.com/cm/marieclaire/images/MM/mcx-bgsw-full-figured-fashion-week-4.jpg


Also, the "Manfattan" project has a nice album with a host of pictures from the runway shows.

http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.108655002610308.12197.108023949340080&type=3

The prettiest photo presents Katherine in her first outfit from the Indie show:

The next two are actually from the grand finale. First, Katherine walking for Lane Bryant:

And second, doing her turn at the end of the runway in her MYNT 1792 outfit. I love how her hair tosses as she turns. I can't wait to see a video of Katherine walking in this show.

Mr. Lew's images are always the definitive record of FFFWeek, but it's interesting to see these alternative angles as well.

This site features a wonderful series of images from the Indie Designer Showcase and identifies the designers.

http://www.masquemag.com/2012/06/sonsi-full-figured-fashion-week-day-3.html

The first, the one that gave Katherine the pretty bouquet and adorable outfit, is Youtheary Khmer:

Here's Katherine looking luscious in her Masaari dress:

And the name of the designer that sent Jenn down the runway in her long dress is Curvato:

As a special bonus, here's a brief video of the final "clapping" turn of the models on the runway. Katherine appears in her Masaari dress at 0:34. She looks incredible.

It's been said before, but it's true: Katherine Roll = the perfect plus-size model.

The photographer Danielle Melnyczenko also features a host of fine images of Katherine at FFFWeek finale in her FB albums.

So adorable in Youtheary Khmer:

Dangerously desirable for Masaari

At long last, the first videos from FFFWeek 2012 are beginning to emerge.

This video shows the Jibri collection. Of course, the highlight is Katherine Roll, who appears at 1:29, wowing the crowd in her slinky dress.

The FFFWeek videos are coming one after another now. Here's the clip of Chinoo designs, starring the breathtaking Katherine Roll

<object width="690" height="423"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/shz2qa1xueY?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/shz2qa1xueY?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="690" height="423" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

Watch for her at 2:34. I love this hairstyle on her. The outfit shows off her flawless figure.

Here's a terrific treat from FFFWeek - the Lavender's Jungle showcase, with both Katherine Roll and Jenn Purviance participating.

Katherine walks the runway at 3:12, in a gorgeous outfit -- a short skirt, sleeveless top, and wearing a pretty bow. It's like the ensemble was tailor made to feature plus-size beauty. Katherine has legs for miles.

Jenn walks earlier, at 1:25, also in a short skirt.

<object width="690" height="423"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/us0qz27UC-I?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/us0qz27UC-I?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="690" height="423" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

As with the rest of the videos, embedding doesn't work, so just click the video screen to view it on YouTube.

The next FFFWeek video shows the wares of the Curvato label. This showcase features both Katherine and Jenn.

Katherine sashays onto the catwalk at 2:16, looking every bit the goddess. And Jenn makes her entrance at 0:44. Watch her movements at the end of the runway. These girls know just how stunning they are.

<object width="690" height="423"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/1x0NBPccerk?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/1x0NBPccerk?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="690" height="423" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

Oh, to have been there in person!

Here's a FFFWeek video I was really waiting for -- Youtheary Khmer.

This collection has Katherine in her most beautiful outfit of FFFWeek (apart from the wedding gown): that adorable pink skirt which bares her legs, and the fitted grey top that defines her buxom figure.

Katherine appears at 3:31 in the video. As with many of these vids, embedding doesn't work, so click the screen to watch it on YouTube.

<object width="690" height="388"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/TmmVby4jJxQ?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/TmmVby4jJxQ?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="690" height="388" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

The bouquet of flowers that Katherine holds completes the look. Enchanting.
