Purple Talk Table “Living Your Best Life” Inspirational Speaker

So excited to have Hannah Schnabel as one of our Inspirational Speakers

Hannah Schnabel is a true Renaissance Woman: Owner and Designer for Belle Ampleur, a plus size luxury clothing company based in Seattle, WA, the Creator and Producer behind Curves in Bloom- a one day celebration of all bodies, a designer for stage and film, an actress, public speaker, home chef, and dog mom to her rescue pup, Beatrice! Hannah loves to create connections for humans of all backgrounds to have meaningful conversations around the intersections of art, body image, politics, and personal lived experiences.

The creation of her clothing line Belle Ampleur is a direct result of her 20 years of experience working in retail and the lack of options for the plus size consumer. She recognizes the sizeism that is inherent in fashion, and for years, empathized with her clients and wept with them in tiny fitting rooms surrounded by clothing that they could only look at, not wear. This frustration with sizeism led to a righteous anger, and catapulted her into a new career. Hannah went back to school at 30 years old –learned the trade of pattern making and garment construction– and then launched Belle Ampleur three years ago. Hannah continues the fight, one garment, one client at a time. Hannah longs to be an integral part of destroying sizeism in fashion and the erroneous notion that fat women don’t want high end fashion. Hannah Schnabel makes handmade clothing for women of beautiful scale. Luxury. Life sized.

It is with great pleasure to announce Ms. Monika C. Mathews as our Inspirational Speaker for our Purple Table Talks “Living Your Best Life!”

Monika has committed her life to empowering those around her to become their ideal selves by teaching how to step into greatness in all aspects of life, despite negative living environments that affect emotional health and growth. She is skilled in mentoring overlooked youth, conflict resolution, parental engagement, inspirational leadership and is an expert in serving African American youth in particular. She has been gifted with the ability to organize and mobilize individuals in the community, particularly youth, to work towards building safer and stronger networks. These gifts, talents, and experiences converge to create a unique experience for all with whom she comes in contact.
 
In 2003, Miss Mathews formed The Life Enrichment Group in response to a disproportionate number of students of color with a lack of cultural knowledge of themselves while failing in school. Ms. Mathews began developing mentoring programs that focused specifically on providing holistic experiences for young people including Young Queens of Seattle King County. Ms. Mathews states her philosophy, “The strongest piece of a good foundation is based on positive relationships that are nurtured, which has proven to be an effective intervention for overlooked youth to help shape/change attitudes associated with participating in destructive behavior. The overarching goal is to positively promote success in youth by raising their self and mental awareness of unique gifts and talents that they possess while they blossom towards their fullest potential!”

Thank You! 2018 Curves Beautifully Empowered Experience III & Full-Figured Fashion Experience Is Complete!

Thx post
 
WOW so happy, satisfied and content with Curves Beautifully Empowered Experience III and the launch of Full-Figured Fashion Experience Runway Show!
 
I believe I was born to inspire and empower. I believe I am to honor and uplift amazing people, especially women. I believe the only approval I need is to see a woman come and be moved, uplifted, inspired and transformed. Not because of me but because of the power of sharing our victories and sorrows that life can inflict upon us. The look when one’s words resonates with the heart of another. When a woman launches her business, writes that book, loses emotional & physical weight and with no apology declares that she is MORE than ENOUGH.
 
I am committed to transforming the lives of women and young girls by providing empowering and inspiring experiences through fashion and confidence-boosting events, vision workshops and sisterhood. My mission, our mission is to empower women and girls to embrace their curves; to see, to accept and soar into their personal awesomeness. She should look and feel good on the inside and out!
 
The vision is CLEAR to see every woman and girl with curves large and small to take the risks in life necessary to experience and achieve her dream.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. You’re playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
— Marianne Williamson
 
To ALL the amazing speakers who graced Curves Beautifully Empowered Experience III & Full-Figured Fashion Experience Runway Show THANK YOU FOR YOUR YES! We connected and elevated each other! I look forward to seeing how all of you connect and collaborate with each other. When one of us win, we ALL win.
