We are only days away from the next edition of the Lingerie Collective’s NYC show. The show runs from February 23 – 25, 2014 at Studio 320 (320 West 37th St 14th Floor) — a short walk from Jacob Javits Center.
The luxurious venue helps bring together brands and buyers in a very intimate setting. Cindy Hahn of Azaleas noted at the last show: “The airy space was nice and felt like a nice break from all the booths. Definitely a more designer feel and the collections flowed nicely from beginning to end.”

Madame SuperTrash is a luxe label for independent women with a great sense of style. The ST. woman stands for success, sophistication and attitude; she combines outspoken personality with effortless class, yet she is never too polished and her outfits always have a unique, edgy twist.
Timeless collections that fulfill all needs and desires: long-line, non-wire, full coverage bras, bikinis, high waisted briefs, hipsters, thongs, chemise, and garters. The pieces are designed using exquisite details, such as galloon lace inserts, luxurious stretch silk charmeuse, and hand-sewn beading.
NaïS [pronounced ‘nice’] is a new concept of urban crafted lingerie and loungewear. Supplied exclusively by American companies and manufactured in the state of New York ; this Brooklyn-based brand renders a fresh spirit that takes its inspiration from street art and retro culture, brought to life by hand with an intricate aesthetic. For each piece, we look to offer the best combination of style and comfort –exuding the exceptionally unconventional woman.
Darkest Star is run by the quirky design duo Sam and Andy D’Cruze. The two met while Sam was studying womenswear design at London’s Central St. Martins. After spending quite a bit time working in the fashion and photography industry, the two decided to combine their skills, passion for design, and eye for detail. The brand specializes in erotic accessories with a unique twist, aimed at the luxury end of the market. As they put it, “an unintimidating, chic alternative to light bondage.”
Dottie’s Delights strives to support female curves in all senses of the word by providing high-end lingerie that focuses on attractive design, fit, and function with an emphasis on the quality attention to detail and technique found in mid-century vintage foundations.
SALUA as a brand seeks to inspire romanticism and embody a sense of vintage glamour. We design in the forward leaning city of Seattle and manufacturer out of our own workshop in the Caribbean hometown of Santa Marta, Colombia.
