Spirits are Rising
I am not much of a gambler, but having visited the CurveNV Lingerie show held at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas last week, and based on the feedback I received, I would bet that business is beginning to stabilize.
The Las Vegas vibe has never been my cup of tea. I would rather spend my time horseback riding in the open air. But now and then, bright lights and a great show are a welcome change of pace. The CurveNV exhibition did not disappoint. Increased attendance by both buyers and exhibitors contributed to the positive energy. But the highlight of the three day event was definitely the standing room only So Curve fashion runway spectacle showcasing lingerie designers from around the globe. Also, the champagne cocktails preceding the event didn’t hurt the upbeat mood!
CurveNV is a different show than CurveNY. It is absolutely a West Coast dynamic, laid back and informal. But there was no doubt that the mood was just as resilient as its more intense NY counterpart. The message was clear.
