Virginia DeBerry & Donna Grant – From Plus Models to Authors   

Who Are They:  When I ventured into plus sized modeling for a second time in the late 90's, a beautiful plus sized model named Donna Grant was one of my early inspirations.  I passed her on Seventh Avenue as I was coming from a casting one afternoon.  I was pretty new on the scene and I didn't know her personally but I knew her name and just blurted it out to get her to stop and I began gushing with excitement at the thought of meeting her in the flesh. She looked at me like I was crazy for a brief second (lol) but she stopped and chatted with me for a few moments and I never forgot how kind and gracious she was to me that day. 

As New York City makes history with the first ever Full Figured Fashion Week, I thought it important that we pay homage to those who help lay the foundation years ago for such an event to take place now.  I had the pleasure of running into Donna Grant & Virginia DeBerry at an industry function a few years back and I knew immediately that as pioneers of Plus modeling; I needed to interview these women and give my readers a glimpse into how the plus modeling industry began.
