Out and about in service of the curves crown- Boutique Prachtvoll

Dorothee Harries / Prachtvoll

Saturday, sunshine, warm temperatures. It’s time for an outing into the countryside, I’m going to the small town Syke close to Bremen, Germany. As part of a restaurant’s anniversary, Dorothee Harries of plus size boutique Prachtvoll, in cooperation with the store Frauenzimmer  (for small sizes) has organized a fashion-show. A good reason for me to wear something different than my obligatory black, I put on a summer outfit . . . Oh, nooo, no dress. Destroyed jeans and a thin flower-patterned  blouse will do.
From a distance I can hear loud music, because I am (again) a little late and the event is in full swing. I am pleasantly surprised, as it’s pretty crowded in the small square in front of the restaurant and the shops. A red carpet is rolled out for the models as a runway to present the latest trends. Left and right of it  table rows are put up,  all seats occupied.
I squeeze between a few elderly ladies  and get infected by the merriment. For the small town, this is a mega event and accordingly, the mood is exuberant. The Plus Size Models walk alternately with the skinny ones, thus the size range is broad.
While I take pictures, I strain my ears and look around in between. I want to find out people’s reaction to the plus size gals.
I see friendly faces and hear only positive comments, I feel very heart-warming. Bodyshaming obviously does not go on here.
After the show I walk into Prachtvoll. The shop is filled with customers, all clearly in a buying mood. I have the opportunity for some nice conversations, owner Dorothee Harries, despite the stress, has a little time for me.

For me, fashion is a minor object here. I want to find out how Plus Size is accepted, commented on and evaluated. I wanted to observe how far the acceptance for curvy women has developed.
I have looked in open faces, heard and seen cheers for the plus size models  and enjoyed a downright positive atmosphere. The luscious ladies in the audience have all been dressed nicely and smart and were a delight for the eye.

Not only because of that, I will come back soon, and tell you about the wonderful Boutique Prachtvoll  and its charming owner Dorothee.
