Hosted by Anti Diet Riot Club, the first Fat Girl Clothing Festival will be held at Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen on 1 July with a variety of size-inclusive brands and a host of body-positive influencers.

Confirmed brands include Plus Equals, Gypsy East Collective, Venus Libido, Head Blush Glitta Bar, Miss Gloria Design, Pot Yer Tits Away Luv, Sweet Mother Fluffer, Milk & Moon, Bearded Broads Club, Naomi Hop and Anti Diet Riot Shop.

Founder of Anti Diet Riot Club Becky Young said: “If you’re plus size, and often even if you’re bigger than a size 14/L, then shopping can be a stressful and traumatic ordeal… with a lack of styles for bigger bodies, inconsistent sizing, cramped changing rooms with 360 mirrors, and if there are plus size ranges in high street shops then they’re squashed into a corner and might as well have a flashing ‘FATSO’ sign above it!”

The event will also host a clothing swap shop, cocktails and a series of empowering shops with influencers like Megan Jayne Crabbe, Lottie L’Amour and Love from Danica, as well as Orange Buffalo street food, photobooths and live DJ music.
