Intimate Insiders, Intimate Affairs and Upcoming Events

31 Jul

I don’t know about you guys… But I’m extremely busy for the next three weeks.  The wholesale market is underway…  I have dozens of appointments over the next three weeks and my evenings and weekends are booked solid with other lingerie related events and parties!  Here’s a quick rundown of the happenings in the biz….

Tonight, Fruit of the Loom is throwing a party to celebrate August Market and to unveil their new FOTL, Inc. showroom on Broadway in NYC.  Guests will be treated to cocktails, light fare, music and more.

The Intimate Apparel Council is gathering together for their next event at the Union League Club in NYC on Wednesday, August 1, 2012.  Marshal Cohen, Chief Industry Analyst of The NPD Group, will present “50 Shades of Intimates” as he discusses trends impacting our industry.  The event is free for members of the Intimate Apparel Council (and their employees.)  The Intimate Apparel Council is a division of the American Apparel and Footwear Association.

The Lingerie Alliance Launch Party and Lingerie Fashion Show is this Saturday, August 4th!  The Intimate Affair will introduce industry leaders, buyers, media and press to the online collaborative community of intimate apparel professionals created by me and my partner, Luis Paredes.  The Fashion Show will feature SS13 collections from Affinitas & Parfait as well as the imaginative designs of independent brands Angela Friedman, Clare Bare Eco Intimates, Dirty Dolls Lingerie, Nevaeh Intimates, Ombrato and With Love Lingerie.  Buyers and Media/Press are welcome to attend the Intimate Affair or they can register to view the designer collections during Market Week.  Affinitas & Parfait will be exhibiting at CurvExpo from August 5th through the 7th while the five emerging, independent labels will be showing their lines at the Lingerie Journal Designer Showcase from August 5th through August 8th at the AKA Hotel, Times Square, NYC.  The Showcase gives buyers the opportunity to meet one-on-one with designers in a relaxed setting.  Buyers looking for innovative, new collections can pre-register for the Designer Showcase at: http://lingeriedesignershowcase.com/attendee-registration/

The bi-annual Lingerie Trade Shows CURVENY and The Lingerie Journal Designer Showcase kick-off here in NYC on Sunday, August 5th.  And then, CURVELV takes place a few weeks later in Las Vegas. 

The Best of Intima’s Best Shop Awards will be held in the Penthouse at 230 Fifth Ave on August 5th

On Monday, August 6th, our very own Ellen Lewis (my mentor and founder of Lingerie Briefs) and none other than the fabulous Lingerie Goddess & Sensuality Stylist Margaret Shrum are primary speakers at an event being held at the CURVENY trade show…  The Event called “The Yin and Yang of Lingerie” is presented by LELO and focuses on the margin potential of merchandising pleasure objects in a specialty store setting.  With a strong emphasis on a woman’s confidence and mental and physical health, this seminar will demonstrate how LELO takes the business of pleasure from the back room to the bottom line with style and class within specialty shops.  

That same night, CURVENY presents The So Curve Fashion Show featuring dancers who have performed with the original Crazy Horse Paris dance ensemble.  Participating brands include Affinitas, Fantasie and Freya, Hanky Panky, LOU Paris, Simone Perele and Wacoal among others.  Individuals registered to attend CurvExpo in NYC can sign up for various events taking place during CURVENY at: http://www.curvexpo.com/new-york/events-to-attend

Intimate Insiders, Intimate Affairs and Upcoming Events

24 Jul

It’s a very busy time of year for the Lingerie biz.  We’ve hardly recovered from the jetlag resulting from trips to MODE CITY in Paris and other European buying trips earlier this month.  And now we’re headed straight into the busiest few weeks of the year. 

Speaking of Europe, I’ve had the privilege of seeing a few SS13 Trend Reports over the past few weeks.  Most of these reports are proprietary, but I’ve got two words for you—floral and coral!  Yes, Tangerine Tango is here to stay….at least for a little while longer.  Although, it looks like it will be used more as an accent color than a primary color.  And designers are playing with the intensity of the color a bit.  In general, the trends are ultra-feminine…. Simply, pretty!  The bold, bright floral prints coming in Spring are fabulous….

Next week is the wholesale Market Week here in New York City.  Buyers from major retailers come in from around the country to meet with their current vendors and to meet-and-greet with potential new vendors.  The focus will be on wrapping up SS13 buys and previewing Back-to-School and Fall 13 assortments.  That is followed by the bi-annual Lingerie Trade Shows CURVENY and The Lingerie Journal Designer Showcase here in NYC.  And then, CURVELV takes place a few weeks later in Las Vegas.  In addition to the Market appointments, buyers and brands are busy attending various other industry related events such as The Best of Intima’s Best Shop Awards on August 5th

And of course, no one wants to miss The Lingerie Alliance Launch Party and Lingerie Fashion Show on Saturday, August 4th!  The Intimate Affair will introduce industry leaders, buyers, media and press to the online collaborative community of intimate apparel professionals created by me and my partner, Luis Paredes.  The Fashion Show will feature SS13 collections from Affinitas & Parfait as well as the imaginative designs of independent brands Angela Friedman, Clare Bare Eco Intimates, Dirty Dolls Lingerie, Nevaeh Intimates, Ombrato Lingerie & Sleepwear and With Love Lingerie.  Buyers and Media/Press are welcome to attend the Intimate Affair or they can register to view the designer collections during Market Week.  Affinitas & Parfait will be exhibiting at CurvExpo from August 5th through the 7th while the six emerging, independent labels will be showing their lines at the Lingerie Journal Designer Showcase from August 5th through August 8th at the AKA Hotel, Times Square, NYC.  The Showcase gives buyers the opportunity to meet one-on-one with designers in a relaxed setting.  Buyers looking for innovative, new collections can pre-register for the Designer Showcase at: http://lingeriedesignershowcase.com/attendee-registration/

REMINDER- The Intimate Apparel Square Club is having their annual Christmas in July Party at the RUSK Institute on 34th Street and First Ave in NYC this Wednesday, July 25th.   Members of the Club and other supporters of IASC and RUSK come together to visit with the children who are suffering from life-altering illnesses or disabilities to spread some “holiday” cheer.  The festive Intimate Affair brings joy to the children and warms the hearts of all those who attend.  If you are interested in attending this special event or want to learn more about how you can get involved in the IASC, feel free to reach out to me. 

The Intimate Apparel Council is gathering together for their next event at the Union League Club in NYC on Wednesday, August 1, 2012.  Marshal Cohen, Chief Industry Analyst of The NPD Group, will present “50 Shades of Intimates” as he discusses trends impacting our industry.  The event is free for members of the Intimate Apparel Council (and their employees.)  The Intimate Apparel Council is a division of the American Apparel and Footwear Association.

Intimate Insiders, Intimate Affairs and Upcoming Events

10 Jul

“I Love Paris in the Summer when it Sizzles…”  I can’t think of a more appropriate song lyric to sum up the essence of the annual Salon International du Swimwear and de la Lingerie and Interfiliere held in Paris each July.  The famous trade shows which feature the latest lingerie and swimwear designs from brands around the world as well raw materials such as fabric, embroidery, lace and trims, are wrapping up as we speak….  Although I didn’t attend this year, I can assure you that these shows are “sizzling.”  I look forward to reading (and seeing) the trend reports from my colleagues in the coming weeks.  These shows (which take place concurrently) inspire intimate apparel professionals to do what they do….  To bring you the latest and greatest lingerie and swimwear designs conceivable!

A few Intimate Insights for the week….

There seems to be a new trend in Intimate Apparel Retailing….  I recently introduced you to the ecom site, True & Co.  True & Co. claims to solve our bra fit problems with a proprietary online fit process (sans measuring tape.)  Unfortunately, when I filled out their “simple quiz,” the results revealed that they had no matches for me.  Since then, I’ve discovered two more websites offering intimate apparel in a members-only environment.  Both sites create a customized showroom for members based on your preferences (another “simple quiz.”)  Each site varies slightly.  But the overall concept seems to be the same. 

Social commerce company BeachMint  launched their latest site, intiMINT, on May 30th.  They partnered with Dancing with the Stars host, Brooke Burke-Charvet to create the brand.  Available exclusively at intimint.com, the collection includes intimate apparel, loungewear, and sleepwear.

Brooke Burke-Charvet

intiMINT’s launch collection ranges in price from twenty dollars for two pairs of panties to eighty dollars for more substantial pieces.  intiMINT’s monthly membership (twenty dollars) is applied as a credit towards any purchase and is only charged when a member makes her first purchase.  As with BeachMint’s other brands, members receive personalized selections each month matched to their Style Profile with the option to choose items they love or skip the month for no charge.  Members also receive exclusive behind the scenes content and how-to styling tips.

 

The website AdoreMe.com claims to be the world’s first online lingerie personalized club providing the convenience and luxury of a personal shopping experience.  Upon entering the website, Adore Me members fill out a free lingerie consultation (AKA the “simple quiz”) indicating preferences in color, size, shape, and fit.  Additionally, fun questions such as, “Which Gossip Girl style best fits you?” provides additional insight into each member’s individual tastes.  Based on this style profile, a private showroom is handpicked.  Then, members receive one-on-one attention from lingerie experts who create a new showroom for them each month.  Monthly membership is just $39.95 and includes one set, free shipping and free exchange!  Adore Me offers bras, panties, boy shorts, bathing suits, stockings, leggings, chemises, baby doll, and more!

How do you feel about this type of online retailing?  Do you trust a computer quiz to “match” you with your perfect bra even if an intimate apparel expert had a hand in selecting it for you?  Heck…  If we can trust a “simple quiz” on Match.com or eHarmony to match us with our perfect mate, why not bras?  But I’m beginning to think it’s easier to find the perfect life partner than it is to find the perfect bra!  Thoughts? 

Another designer has been added to the line-up of the next edition of the Lingerie Journal Designer Showcase.  I’m excited to report that Angela Friedman will be showing her Versailles Collection alongside independent brands With Love Lingerie, Nevaeh Intimates, Dirty Dolls Lingerie and Clare Bare Eco-Friendly Intimate Apparel.  This season’s show runs from Sunday, August 5th through August 8th at the AKA Hotel on West 44th Street, NYC.  The Lingerie Designer Showcase had an incredibly successful show last February with several independent designers showing their lines and a sold out Brand Affair Seminar and Lingerie Exhibition that drew in close to 200 guests including buyers, lingerie retail store owners, independent lingerie designers, wholesale manufacturers, influential lingerie bloggers, and other intimate apparel professionals.  Buyers are welcome to pre-register here:  www.LingerieDesignerShowcase.com/attendee-registration/

OK….. I may have lied (not intentionally, of course.)  Web development is running a few days behind schedule (to be expected.)  Soooo….  We’re not quite ready for our big announcement.  But I promise it will happen this week.  Follow Bra La Mode & The Lingerie Journal (I’m thinking Wednesday or Thursday latest) to hear about my latest endeavor with Luis Paredes, publisher of The Lingerie Journal.  I’m really excited about this project and can’t wait to share it with the entire lingerie community. It will align all facets of our industry in very unique ways.

Buyers are welcome to register for the upcoming CurvExpo at www.CurvExpo.com.  The Designer Lingerie and Swim Show is being held in NYC from August 5th through August 7th and in Las Vegas from August 21st through the 23rd.

“Hot town, summer in the city…..Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty.”  Happy 4th of July.  I have fabulous memories of watching the fireworks over the Navesink River in my hometown of Red Bank, New Jersey as a kid.  But it’s the food that really sticks in my mind…. There’s nothing better than my Mom’s homemade Potato Salad alongside a few slices of tender London Broil and corn on the cob.  I wish you all a safe holiday with friends and family.  Create some great memories that you’ll cherish for years to come. 

Here are a few Intimate Insights for this holiday week….

Congrats to my friend Ann Deal at Fashion Forms!  I’m excited to hear that you’re opening an East Coast Showroom at 183 Madison.  The showroom will be built out just in time for the Wholesale Market Week- July 30th through August 3rd.  We’ll be neighbors!  Best Wishes!

Jockey is launching an Intimate Apparel collection endorsed by celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe.  The collection will be available in Jockey stores and on Jockey.com this month and will be rolled out in major retailers starting October.  I’m anxious to see the line!

Who’s excited that Nordstrom is coming to the Big Apple?  Nordstrom has excellent customer service (and actual bra fitters) in their Intimates Dept, so I’m excited about the news.  I’m grateful to Nordstrom for introducing me to one of my all-time favorite bras- the Freya Deco Plunge!  Of course, they’re projecting the store won’t open until year 2018.  Hmmmm…. I wonder what bras will look like in 2018?  Interesting thought, huh?

Intimate Insiders, Intimate Affairs and Upcoming Events

19 Jun

I found myself wandering around the West Village on Sunday afternoon, popping in and out of specialty boutiques. I have always appreciated small, independently owned businesses. I admire their entrepreneurial spirit and their passion for taking risks on lesser known designers and brands. One of my stops was the lingerie boutique Marc and Max on Bleecker Street. I was thrilled to see that they are now carrying my favorite lingerie brand, Ann Vogue, as well as other emerging brands such as Claudette, Brulee, CLO Intimo, Tatu Couture, Addiction Nouvelle Lingerie and the exquisite LOU Paris. Next time you’re in the neighborhood, take a few minutes to admire their carefully curated selection of fine lingerie.

Last week I introduced you to the very talented Angela Friedman and her debut intimate apparel collection, the Versailles Collection. To get a look at her impeccable designs, stop into La Petite Coquette on University Place, NYC. Selected pieces from her collection are displayed in the front window. And more pieces from her range will be in store in August.

The Underfashion Club held a members-only networking event on Tuesday, June 12th. The exclusive Intimate Affair was a wine and cheese tasting event at Murray’s Cheese on Bleecker Street in the Village. Murray’s Cheese has been a neighborhood landmark in Greenwich Village since 1940. I have purchased some of the finest cheeses from Murray’s over the years and have attended some of their other tasting events and classes. Can ya tell that cheese ranks as one of my “favorite things” right behind lingerie?

In the market for some new lingerie or sleepwear at fabulous prices? KOMAR and Carole Hochman Design Group (a KOMAR company) are having their annual Sleepwear and Lingerie Sample Sale on Wednesday June 20th & Thursday June 21st. The sale is being held at 135 Madison Avenue, 4th Floor, NYC (between 31st & 32nd Streets) and will feature lingerie and sleepwear from brands including Betsey Johnson, Anne Klein, Donna Karan Collection, Company by Ellen Tracy, Nicole Miller and more.

Mode City PARIS is only a few weeks away. Be sure to register online for your badge at www.mode-city.com.  The famous Salon International du Swimwear and de la Lingerie and Interfiliere are being held from July 7th through July 9th at the Paris Expo, Porte de Versailles, Pavilion #1.

Attention Lingerie Designers! The next edition of the Lingerie Journal Designer Showcase is opening its doors this summer. They had an incredibly successful show this past February with 10 independent designers showing their lines and a sold out Brand Affair Seminar and Lingerie Exhibition that drew in close to 200 guests including buyers, lingerie retail store owners, independent lingerie designers, wholesale manufacturers, influential lingerie bloggers, and other intimate apparel professionals. Designers interested in exhibiting at this summer’s show should contact info@lingeriedesignershowcase.com to request an application. Space is very limited, so be sure to register quickly.

Intimate Affair: The Underfashion Club’s Annual Holiday Party

12 Dec

The Underfashion Club held their annual Holiday Party at the National Arts Club on NYC’s Gramercy Park on Tuesday, December 6, 2011.  The annual Intimate Affair brings together professionals in the intimate apparel industry and related fields for a festive holiday event replete with cocktails, dinner and dancing.  The event included a “whimsical” holiday-themed design contest.  And guests were invited to bring gifts of clothing or toys for children (from infant to teen) which were then donated to the non-profit New York Foundling Home, an organization dedicated to supporting abandoned and neglected children. 

Walter Costello, president of The Underfashion Club

The Intimate Affair began with a lively cocktail hour which allowed guests the opportunity to mingle and network with fellow club members.  Club president Walter Costello then welcomed guests and made a few remarks including an announcement of the 2012 Femmy Gala Award honorees– Century 21 Department Stores, Fruit of the Loom and Top Form Brassiere Manufacturing Company, Ltd.  The Innovation Award will be presented to Penn Asia Company Limited and the Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented to longtime Underfashion Club member Victor Vega of Wacoal America.  The 2012 Femmy Gala will be held at Cipriani on 42nd Street on Tuesday, January 31, 2012.

After Walter made his remarks, club board member and co-chairman of the charity committee, Michael Floru, announced that the club would be making donations to New York City’s Meals on Wheels, St. Francis Friends of the Poor and the New York Foundling Home.  It has become a tradition for the club to disperse funds to three designated charities at the annual holiday soiree. 

Andrea Greer from Maidenform with her Winners

At this year’s event, the design contest received an assortment of unusual entries!  The contest judges Ellen Lewis of Lingerie Briefs and Colette Wong, chair of fashion design at NYC’s Fashion Institute of Technology, selected two entries as first and second prize winners.  The first prize was awarded to Andrea Greer of Maidenform for her Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer Bra which earned her a free ticket to the 2012 Femmy Gala.  And, the second prize was also awarded to Andrea Greer for her red and white Snowflake Bra.  This entry earned her a year’s membership in the Underfashion Club.  Congrats Andrea!  What a surprise to have the top two entries submitted by the same person!

The highlight of the Intimate Affair was the raffle prize.  All guests received a raffle ticket upon entrance to the event.  The guests gathered in anticipation of winning the grand prize- a trip to Paris in July including round-trip airfare, three nights hotel stay and entrance into the Mode City and Interfiliere trade shows.  This prize was generously donated to the club by Eurovet, the international organizer of trade shows for the intimate apparel and swimwear industries.  The lucky winner was intimate apparel industry professional Vanessa Martin.

Guests at last week’s Holiday Intimate Affair included club president Walter Costello and board members Roslyn Harte, Victor Vega, Deborah Long-Gedney, Karen Bromley, Steve Chernoff, Gary Hughes, Kenneth Natori, Lance Whitaker, Michael Floru among others.  Numerous other professionals attended the event such as Tim Regan, Don Allen, Richard Murray, Alice Paparatto, Stacey Siokas, Michael Drescher, Heidi Lehmann, Peter Coppola, Tyler Lee, Lisa Alvarez, Lysa Villeneuve, Susan Buchanan Malinowski, Mimi Patel, Colette Wong, Laurence Teinturier, Jean-Luc Teinturier, Lindsay Petersen, Ellen Lewis and dozens more.  Media professionals included Karyn Monget from WWD, Mozz Manzoor and Libby Dowd from The Lingerie Journal and Ted Vayos from Body Magazine.

About the Underfashion Club

It is the mission of the Underfashion Club to raise funds and expend energy to safeguard the present and future health of the intimate apparel industry by supporting education of new talent, attracting this talent to careers in Intimate Apparel and to act as good citizens in the local community within which the industry exists. 

The club’s Femmy Award Gala is the most prestigious event of the Intimate Apparel Industry.  The annual Femmy Gala is held in recognition of outstanding executives for exceptional achievements.  Proceeds from this event provide the primary funding for the Club’s extensive scholarship, awards, internship and grants (SAIG) programs.  The SAIG Committee interacts with and monitors the progress of scholarship recipients, coordinates industry participation in educational seminars for students, supports intimate apparel education on the high school and college levels, and actively pursues an intimate apparel internship program in the New York area. 

The Program Committee develops informative seminars featuring guest speakers and panelists from the industry and related fields.  Held at frequent intervals, these meetings are designed to stimulate and entertain, as well as provide opportunities for career networking.  The committee also offers fun get-togethers such as the annual Holiday Party where, in the spirit of the season, clothes and toys are generously donated to the New York Foundling Home. 

Through the Charity Committee, meaningful cash donations are made in support of many worthy causes that are industry-related and/or humanitarian in nature.
