It’s that time again: Lingerie Fashion Week returns this week to preview the upcoming Fall/Winter 2014 collections! The fun begins tomorrow night with the opening runway show from Bradelis New York and continues through Saturday, with a closing runway show from Affinitas and Parfait. This season moves to a new venue and features more designers than ever, including some of my favorites like FYI by Dani Read and Nevaeh.
No rest for the wicked though: Sunday is the opening day of both Curve, the North American lingerie trade show, where hundreds of lingerie, loungewear, and swimwear brands preview their collections for retailers and press, and The Lingerie Collective, a curated showroom of luxury independent brands. It’s always a (somewhat exhausting) whirlwind, and a wonderful chance to see what new designs and trends are in store for us, to connect with designers from around the world, to discover new brands, and to catch up with some of my favorite fellow bloggers!
My calendar is booked solid, with visits to both firm favorites (big brands like Panache, Freya, Elomi, and Parfait, and indies like Dottie’s Delights and Angela Friedman) as well as some exciting new ones. I can’t wait to see Iris London and Layneau Collection at LingerieFW, Sunday Intimates and Flirty Pretty Things at Curve, and Harlow & Fox at their showroom!
Are you curious about what your favorite brands will have in store for the Fall and Winter? Let me know in the comments if there are any in particular you’d like to see, and I’ll do my best to get the scoop. I’ll be sharing live photos from all events on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, so please join me there for real-time updates. And of course, if you plan to attend any of the events, I hope to see you there!
