Our mission is to empower women and girls to embrace their curves; to see, to accept and soar into their personal awesomeness.

Curves Beautifully Empowered (CBE) was founded in 2015 with the launch of the signature event Curves Beautifully Empowered Experience with 40 women in attendance. Shortly after, vision workshops were launched helping women reach their goal achievement. Each year this organization has strives to increase connection to women in King County. In 2016 CBE launched Girls Beautifully Empowered in a middle school in the Kent School District in partnership with a out of school time program.

In spring of 2017 Curves Beautifully Empowered applied for its 501©3 status and received it in November 2017. In 2018 the signature event has increased and CBE Fashion Experience was launched causing a ripple in the local landscape of fashion and definitions of beauty pertaining to bodies of color, of size and difference in Washington State.

All of this has been done through social capital in monetary donations and in-kind donations. CBE is forever grateful to our supporters. We are moving full speed to make 2019 even more impactful!

Curves Beautifully Empowered Fashion Experience EMCEE

We are excited to have the beautiful Ashleigh Elizabeth join us as our 2019 CBE Fashion Experience EMCEE! With her amazing style and flare we are bound to have an amazing time all night!

Ashleigh E. CW born in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Raised in Portland Oregon. She graduated top of her class at Jefferson High School and continued her education at the University of Oregon. Where she received her psychology degree, then to Warner Pacific to receive her human development. In April of 2018, she graduated at Concordia with her Masters of Business administration, with the accent of Project Management and Marketing.

Throughout Ashleigh’s journey she has always had a heart for fashion and modeling. Yet her lack of confidence detoured her from entering the industry earlier. Until, the year of 2010 where she met Becky Jarvis CEO of Curvy Chic. Becky reintroduced Ashleigh to her beauty within by encouragement, knowledge, and network within the fashion industry. From there Ashleigh has been molded by many hands in the fashion industry from participation or observation. She was one of the first plus African American’s model to walk in Elizabeth Mollo Fade to light production for Portland’s own Altar designs. The first plus model to walk for Colty in Fashionxt. Walked for Ashley Stewart, Fitplus, Lane Bryant and more at New York full figure fashion shows. Ashleigh has also had magazine experience, Fashion Plus, Mercury, Plus fashion Magazine, and cover model for Colette clothing design. Besides fashion accolades she has had the opportunity to have multiple inspiration speaking engagement, motivating women to find the perfect them within all their flaws.

Next year Ashleigh and her team will be launching a marketing and consulting firm November 11th, 2019 in Portland, Oregon.

Ashleigh would not be able to do anything if it wasn’t for the favor of God, her family, and Kingdom sound ministries.

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.
 
I am so very grateful for an amazing support system. And I thank GOD for each and every one of them! I want to shout out these very amazing people for helping me make Curves Beautifully Empowered Experience III and our first Full-Figured Fashion Experience Runway Show. We are going to celebrate next month but until then know that I appreciate every hour, service, dollar and action you have made on my behalf. Call me when you need me and I will be there.

“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.
