The second edition of the Lingerie Designer Showcase is returning to New York from February 21 to 23.
Newcomers to the Designer Showcase, which will be hosted at the AKA Hotel Residences, include Priscilla Jade Lingerie by Priscilla Codinach; Toad Lillie, a handcrafted lingerie collection by Laurie Shapiro; Dottie’s Delights by Stephanie Kuhr and the luxury Sleepwear brand Ann Vogue by NYC-based designer Asi Efros.
Also, returning to the show is Ombrato Sleepwear by Masako Shirokawa.
“We’re incredibly thrilled to have all of our new and returning exhibitors,” said Luis Paredes, the show’s organiser. “Buyers will absolutely love the designers we have on board and they will have the chance to really get to know them and their collections through the Lingerie Journal in the next two months and finally at the show.”
The Lingerie Designer Showcase is a new lingerie trade show, designed to give independent designers and emerging brands the opportunity to meet and do business with buyers in an intimate setting. The show is free for buyers to attend.
“It’s rare in the tradeshow world to get the opportunity to really get to speak directly to designers in such an intimate setting. Some of our newest products are from two of the companies we met at the Showcase and it is absolutely at the top of our ‘must attend’ list for 2012,” added Nicole Cordova of online boutique GiseleLima.com
The show will also feature a seminar for buyers and a networking social to bring together designers and brands.
Buyers interested in attending can stop in any day of the show or schedule an appointment on the show’s site.
The Show is being sponsored by Eucalan Lingerie Wash; the online lingerie directory, Directory-Sexy.com and Love Me Sugar, a line of vintage inspired sleep masks and accessories.
