“As the US intimate apparel industry will generate more than $15 billion annually by 2021, we are seeing the rise of intimates as key drivers of fashion trends.” – Raphael Camp, Eurovet America CEO.
This August the largest trade show in the US dedicated exclusively to lingerie, intimates, loungewear and swimwear returns to New York with over 300 of the leading intimate apparel brands in the world. CURVE, produced by Eurovet Americas, includes numerous special events such as fitting workshops, zeitgeist-altering panels, their signature fashion presentation & the hot ticket industry cocktail party.
“As the US intimate apparel industry will generate more than $15 billion annually by 2021, we are seeing the rise of intimates as key drivers of fashion trends,” says Eurovet America’s CEO Raphael Camp. “Top celebrities and influencers are seen on social media outlets in intimates and swimwear just as much as outerwear – we are seeing the line being blurred between intimates and ready to wear, fashion is evolving in favor of our industry. More than ever lingerie and hybrid items such as bodysuits, longline bras and bustiers are incorporated into ensembles worn on runways and city streets alike. Major industry gatherings like Curve are vital to understand the industry as a whole.”
