This month we bring you a special kind of model icon! Plusforus.com was an official sponsor of New Jersey Full Figure Fashion Week (NJFFFW), and in doing so we had a massive ticket give-away. This gave us an opportunity to connect with our fans like never before and helped us discover Jessica Sanchez, an aspiring model from the windy city, Chicago, IL. We were very taken by her beauty and ambition as well as her determination to take the plus size world by storm. One thing we like to do at Plus For Us is to put on new undiscovered talent and Jessica embodies what a full figured model should be. At NJFFFW Jessica thought she was only going to watch the runway shows until she seized the moment and participated in the Runway Model Competition—taking 3rd out of over 50 aspiring models. This just goes to show you that there are amazing opportunities at every turn, and we are very proud to introduce Jessica Milagros Guzman Sanchez as our Model Icon for April 2012!
Check out Jessica taking the runway by storm at New Jersey Full Figured Fashion Week 2012.
We were lucky enough to capture Jessica at her finest in this fierce competition. You can see she was determined to hold her own and win the runway contest.
From all of us at Plusforus.com, we would like to congratulate Jessica as our first ever Model Icon Contest Winner!
