CurveNY August 2014 Photo Recap
There’s something about the summer edition of CurveNY that makes it a treat to cover. Maybe it was the sunshine or the cool weather this season, or the variety of intimates, swimwear and accessories from 300+ exhibitors that made August a great show to attend.
This season, Curve unveiled a new, updated show directory and selection guide, and revamped booth structures. The show organizers reported 2,700 buyers at the show and boasted more than 200 connections between brands and retailers during the show made by its team. Also, over 1,000 appointments were created through the CURVEXPO website — more than ever for the show’s web platform.

“CurveNY was an eye opening experience! The incredible amount of buyers walking the show has confirmed to me of a vast opportunity for SAPPHIRE BLISS as a luxury lingerie and swim lifestyle brand,” said Stephanie Chen, of SAPPHIRE BLISS. “The positive interests received on my collection during the show was a satisfying affirmation as the founder and designer”
