It’s that time of year again! The Fall/Winter collections we saw back in February are just beginning to ship to retailers, and now it’s time to preview the Spring/Summer collections for next year! Please tell me I’m not the only one who gets bewildered by talking about Fall/Winter styles, in August, as being “last season.” I’m not alone, right?
Curvexpo is one of the major lingerie industry trade shows in North America, held twice a year in both New York City and Las Vegas. This year’s NYC show runs from August 3-5.
I’m really thankful that I live in New York City, because I love getting the chance to check in with my favorite brands, discover new ones, and try to get a sense of trends, both in terms of the industry and in terms of the fashions. I’ve made appointments with some of the top full-bust brands like Panache, Freya, and Curvy Kate, hot indies like Claudette, Fleur of England, and Dollhouse Bettie, brands that are fairly new to me (though they have incredible history) like Empreinte and Maison Lejaby, and brands that are making their first trip to Curve, like Miss Mandalay and Tutti Rouge. I can’t wait to see the new collections– any brand in particular you’re eager to hear about?
