The Curve NY Show for 2015 was held on August 2-4th at the Javits North Convention Center. There were over 300 brands being showcased at the show and including swimwear companies.
I attended the show on the final day because it is usually a quiet day and I would have a better opportunity to talk to some of the exhibitors and take the photos and videos you see here.
This year I wanted to simply spotlight some of the fashions being shown at the show and stopped at some of the companies that I knew from previous shows and those that would allow me to photograph their fashions and models. Fewer words this year and more photos and video which I hope my readers will like.
Since this is a trade only show meant for retailers of lingerie and swimwear, I made a decision to make this article shorter and include links to the specific companies I covered at this show. You can click the links below to visit their websites and see some of their fantastic fashions. Most will offer a list of retailers in your area that carry their brand.
I would like to thank the following companies for spending time with me and allowing me to photograph their models and garments.
- Affinitas Intimates
- Jane Woolrich Design
- Addiction Nouvelle Lingerie
- Edge O’ Beyond
- Fine Lines Australia
- Amourette by Triumph International
- Maison LeJaby Elixir
- Tia Lyn
- Candies Coutoures
