“I feel completely honored to have been chosen to open the show and to give a voice to all the beautiful curvy women out there,” remarked Roli Chauhan. “I almost didn’t believe it when Andres Aquino, the producer of New York Couture Fashion Week, asked me to walk. I decided to seize this opportunity and be the voice for all the beautiful curvy women out there in the world. Times have truly changed and we have broken the stereotype finally.”

We celebrate your inner Queen”… Hence the name ‘Sonsie Queens’.” “The dresses fit me like a glove and truly make me feel like a Queen,” exclaimed Roli Chauhan.
