Full Figured Fashion Week came to a close on Saturday with a fashion show and awards event at the Broad Street Ballroom in New York. As a celebration of women with curves, the finale show featured fall 13 styles from the country's leading plus-size retailers and boutiques, including Ashley Stewart, Curvy Couture, and Lane Bryant.

The plus-size industry is in an interesting place right now. Demand for larger sizes is growing in America, but consumers—and some industry leaders, like Project Runway's Tim Gunn—have been vocal about the lack-luster options for fashion-conscious women who wear anything higher than a size 12.

Before the show, we spoke with newly instated Lane Bryant CEO Linda Heasley about the state of the industry and her vision for the future of the company. Here's what she has to say about her new role, trend-driven fashion, and Michael Kors.—Christina Dun
