To celebrate the season, The Lingerie Alliance is hosting “A Festive Affair” Holiday Networking Social on Tuesday, December 18, 2012. The invitation-only affair will take place at Legends Bar (Loft Lounge) on 33rd Street (just below the famed Empire State Building) in midtown Manhattan, NYC.
Guests can expect VIP swag bags and lots of merriment as the festive networking event will feature an open bar from 6:30-8:30pm. Space is limited for this exclusive event so guests are encouraged to RSVP and purchase their tickets before Wednesday, December 12th. Tickets will not be available at the door. The cost is $35/ per person and includes a two-hour open bar. Tickets are available at: www.festiveaffair1.eventbrite.com
The highlight of the Intimate Affair will be the Ugly Sweater Contest which will be judged by 89-year old intimate apparel industry legend, Roslyn Harte. Harte has worked full-time in the industry for over 70 years and continues to work every day. She is a huge supporter of The Lingerie Alliance and is also very active in various other industry organizations including the non-profit Underfashion Club and the Intimate Apparel Square Club. The Ugly Sweater Contest prizes are being provided courtesy of the event’s key sponsor, LELO. LELO is the world’s leading designer brand for intimate lifestyle products. The Grand Prize basket alone is valued over $1000. This will certainly motivate guests to haul out their worst sweaters!
Luis Paredes, co-founder of The Lingerie Alliance said,“I can’t wait for the Ugly Sweater Contest. We’re a creative bunch, so I look forward to seeing what people come up with. And the prizes are awesome!”
The party is expected to attract retailers, buyers, prominent media/press, designers, suppliers and other industry professionals from independent, emerging companies and global brands and businesses alike. This unique event will provide an excellent opportunity for intimate apparel professionals to network with one another while celebrating the season in a laid-back environment.
Moira Nelson, co-founder of The Lingerie Alliance said, “We are very excited about this particular event because it is an opportunity for industry pros to really get to know one another. Other events such as seminars or workshops are centered on business, information or education. This event is just about having fun…..No strings attached! Collaboration is the essence of The Lingerie Alliance. This unique affair will undoubtedly promote collaboration among creative pros.”
The Loft Lounge at NYC’s Legends Bar is reminiscent of a centuries old private club replete with oversized, velvet club chairs and mahogany detailing. During the Holidays, Legends Bar is adorned with elaborate, traditional decorations including evergreen garland, ornaments, trimming and bows.
Sponsors of the Holiday Networking Social include LELO, the world’s leading designer brand for intimate lifestyle products and the upscale, online designer lingerie boutique, byChezBoutique.com.
