shortCurvyFIERCE.com was founded by aspiring petite plus size model, Colleen Stovall, out of her frustration with the plus size model industry. An industry created to represent the everyday woman shunned her for being an average height. She strives to break through the barriers of height discrimination. This blog follows her journey of her struggle to represent the everyday woman and become a major player in the modeling industry. The span of the blog has grown, covering everything from plus size modeling, plus size fashion, and events geared to curvy consumers.
Along with gracing the runway in numerous fashion shows in the Tri-State area, Colleen has been a guest writer with Plus Model Magazine, PlusForUs.com and Full Figured News
