What makes this edition of TLS different from past shows? Why should buyers make the time to visit?
This season we’ve gone back to our roots and are doing an intimate season in our studio in the Garment District. We think buyers are going to love this relaxed format where they can sit back with a glass of champagne and see the latest from some of the most interesting designers around. Who wouldn’t like that?
Lingerie Selection = Something for Everyone!

This summer’s show has an impressive roster of brands. What categories are represented?
One of the great things is that we cover a large range of categories. We have brands who do incredibly luxe sleep and lounge, bridal, upscale basics, bedroom accessories like cuffs and eye masks, and, of course, simply stunning boudoir worthy lingerie. This season we also have several brands bringing beautiful resort and swim collections! There really is something for everyone.

Skarlett Blue is sponsoring this season’s cocktail hour. Could you tell us what this event is going to be like and what’s planned?
We always love to have an event where buyers and designers are able to mingle in a more casual environment. As usual, there will be drinks and some extra time to look through The Lingerie Selection’s brands.
Skarlett Blue will be bringing in some of their collection for the event as well. It’s such a great time for people to build relationships across the industry. We are so excited Skarlett Blue is sponsoring and are looking forward to checking out their latest collection ourselves!
Finally, how do you hope buyers feel when they leave the show?
I think buyers are really going to leave this show inspired about the state of the industry. Buyers are going to see lines that are driven by creativity and innovation in design as well as function. These are the brands that are pushing boundaries and shaping the future of lingerie.
