We love lingerie trade shows and we love Las Vegas. When you put these two together with over 200 amazing lingerie, accessory and pleasure product brands you get an amazing experience — the International Lingerie Show.

The Lingerie Journal team wrapped up covering the last edition of ILS at the end of September. Over three days, we met with brands and buyers, discovered some amazing products and took hundreds of photos.

Accessories on Display
Liquid Nymph offers retailers and consumers fetish-inspired accessories with a softer, more feminine touch. Founded by designer Kristy Hatton, Liquid Nymph showed off a beautiful collection of hand-crafted collars, cuffs, locks, leashes and more with touches of lace, satin and feathers at the show.

Baci Lingerie is also expanding into the accessories market with their collaboration with Luna Veneziana. The Italian-based brand is producing a signature collection of high-end Venetian masks for Baci.
From a visual merchandising perspective, the masks are a gorgeous addition to any lingerie boutique and inspire some creative displays for the upcoming holidays including Valentine’s. Email Baci here for details.
Baci also debuted its new Corset Collection at ILS offering retailers at the show a selection of high-quality and competitively priced corsets for their stores and eBoutiques.
