It’s Not About Covering Your Body, It’s About Flattering Your Figure

Cynthia Guffey
Enjoy a style show of loose-fitting garments showing the dramatic difference between those that are simply large enough to cover, and those that fit well. The ease of wearing clothes cut for a more casual, unconstructed look isn’t about size – it’s about fitting key areas to achieve your most flattering silhouette, which creates the most comfortable wearing, too. See how Cynthia works with color to capitalize on the look, creating lively, fashion-forward looks with patterns that are easy to fit and truly wonderful to wear.  Saturday at 12:00pm on the Expo Stage
