OneStopPlus.com is set to stage the first-ever plus-size-only runway show during New York Fall Fashion Week. Although the event won't be held in conjunction with IMG Fashion Week, it will take place right next door at The Atrium in Lincoln Center's Frederick P. Rose Hall on September 15, 2010. Brands to be shown include Avenue, Jessica London, Women Within, Ellos and La Redoute. Eighteen different models will hit the runway, among them Lizzie Miller and Tocarra Jones. Emme will host the red carpet.

VP of Design of OneStopPlus.com Zahir Babvani said in a press release, "This show is a collaborative effort to provide the extraordinary community of plus-size American women with the uncompromising style that they have always deserved but never received. It's about inclusion and fashion democracy: fashion risk-taking and empowerment. No more seeing what you can't have; this is a fashion party that invites and inspires everyone."
