Tonia Minor

Tonia Renee Minor is the founder and CEO of Virginia Full Figured Fashion Week (VF3W). Ms. Minor-White along with her business partner, April S. Minor-White, founded the company on June 24, 2012 after attending several fashion weeks and noticing that there was a lack of women over size 6 on the runway. Ms. Minor-White, a full figured woman herself, desires to bring the full-figured fashion movement to Virginia. Since the company started, Ms. Minor-White and her team have accumulated 125 full figured models, 25 designers and boutiques, 30 hairstylists and make-up artists, and four photographers. The company also has a community outreach unit, which strives to make a positive impact on the lives of children and families. In addition to serving as the CEO of Virginia Full Figured Fashion Week (VF3W), Ms. Minor-White is a full-time educator who works with special needs high school students in the Newport News Public School system. She also initiated Denbigh High School’s modeling club and currently serves as a junior class advisor. When Ms. Minor is not wearing her CEO or teacher’s hat, she enjoys quiet evenings at home and spending time with her friends and family.
