International Lingerie Show April 2013
In less than two weeks, the Lingerie Journal team touches down in Las Vegas for the International Lingerie Show. Held at the Rio hotel from April 8 – 10, 2013, ILS’s vendors showcase a wide spectrum of lingerie, sleepwear, dancewear, fetish, and pleasure products amongst other categories.
Visiting buyers can expect to see a great selection of lingerie from brands as varied as Baci, Dreamgirl, Fantasy, Lola Haze, Tia Lyn, Lulu & Kath and more.
In addition to intimates, ILS is also a great opportunity for buyers to visit with vendors from the growing (and profitable) Pleasure Product category.
Recently, we reported on the upcoming release of the official Fifty Shades of Grey Official Pleasure Collection. The range has been developed by adult retailer and manufacturer Lovehoney, in association with the trilogy’s author E L James.
“This is an incredible opportunity for retailers to really make the most of the Fifty Shades of Grey phenomenon,” says Elliott. “The Fifty Shades of Grey Official Pleasure Collection is the only range that allows stores to feature the iconic branding seen by tens of millions of American women. It’s the biggest brand our industry has ever seen.” says Lovehoney co-founder Neal Slateford. The LoveHoney team will be at ILS to showcase the entire Fifty Shades of Grey Official Pleasure Collection.
Another toy brand with a focus on helping retailers debuting at ILS is the Glas Collection. The Glas collection is a 24-piece value-priced assortment of hand-crafted borosilicate (pyrex) glass pleasure products featuring artistic shapes and eye-catching colors.

Back to the subject of lingerie, the TLJ team is excited and looking forward to Patrice Catanzaro’s latest collection of lingerie. At the previous ILS, we reported on his latest fetish collection. The preview’s the Catanzaro team has been posting on Facebook are amazing and we can’t wait to show our readers what we’ll see in Vegas.
Fresh from their debut in New York, the Lulu and Kath team are also exhibiting for the first time at ILS. This brand combines shapewear technology with the romance and glamour of boudoir intimates to create their line of vintage-inspired lingerie.

Lola Haze also makes a comeback to ILS with her new Lola by Lola Haze collection. Lola by Lola Haze is an attainable aspiration for all women who want a sexy, glamorous transformation.
Says designer Laura Mehlinger, “I had so many requests from women who loved the Lola Haze look, but wanted more attainability. They wanted sexy, interestingly-designed lingerie that was interpreted for their lifestyle and needs. Lola by Lola Haze is my answer! The assortment has a clear point of view and can easily be merchandised into any store. Lola Haze is known for innovative and comfortable chemises and teddies, so I’m thrilled to introduce a selection that any woman can want…and have.”
Lola by Lola Haze debuts with four teddies and four chemises (The Glamour Girl group, The Perfect Package Group, the Golden Goddess Group, and the Embrace Group), and focuses on sexy, easy to wear fabrics: black stretch lace, gold mesh, and ivory charmeuse.
The International Intimates team will showcase new additions to their Pink Lipstick and Rene Rofe lines: Pink Lipstick Loungewear and Showgirl by René Rofé.

Showgirl by René Rofé Lingerie is inspired by the timeless allure, “of the spotlight, the new Showgirl panty line from René Rofé is made for the girl who feels most at home in center stage, for the sizzling superstar who brightens any room she enters.” Adorned with shining sequins, glittering foil, and sparkling rhinestones, our Showgirl panties were created for the performer who needs her wardrobe to flash as much as she does.
