Plus Size Fashion tour - Join Teena Hughes in Paris

Hi! My name’s Teena and I LOVE PARIS, so  I’ve created a Plus Size Fashion Tour Adventure in Paris and I’d love it if you could join me!

I’m also creating a new Plus Size Fashion Tour in Australia, on the beautiful Gold Coast where it’s summer all year round – stay tuned! Sign up to be notified >>

Paris is one of the top fashion capitals of the world, and you may be surprised to find out there are some gorgeous plus size clothing stores to be found.

I have lived in Paris several times, and whilst there I learnt the amazing skill of handpainting onto white silk, to create gorgeous designs which I then turn into unique wearable art, (which you’ll find available on this website).

I now pop back to Paris whenever I can, at least once per year, to host a series of Adventures (or Workshops).

Plus size shopping? In Paris??!

In the last few years I’ve noticed some gorgeous plus-size stores popping up all over Paris, and I’d love to show them to you – I can even translate French if you need me to -  and we’ll basically enjoy days of adventures and fun with like-minded souls.

So – ready for a Gorgeous Goddess adventure?

Come join me on a Plus Size fashion extravaganza in Paris, France!
