Having only been offered the tradeshow platform in the past, LingerieFW™ is the first Fashion Week to emerge worldwide exclusively dedicated to intimate apparel. Lingerie Fashion Week offers both emerging & established brands ranging from lingerie, loungewear and sleepwear to shapewear, hosiery, lingerie accessories & men’s underwear the opportunity to come together as an industry, collectively showcasing new collections via the exciting, progressive and press-driven Fashion Week platform. Event branding is sleek, sophisticated, fashion forward and most importantly innovative, providing a compelling hub designed to propel the intimates industry forward, while giving brands a dynamic stage for maximum media exposure.

Why a Lingerie Fashion Week now? Once considered a niche category, intimate apparel has recently exploded into the forefront of consumerism, having seen a dynamic surge of recognition particularly within the past few years. The industry is now prevalent in just about every area of pop culture, while innerwear-as-outerwear has moved on from being marked a passing trend to an omnipresent, permanent fixture in fashion worldwide. The U.S. women’s intimates and hosiery market alone grew to $14 billion in 2011, up from $13 billion in 2010 (Source: Citi ), showing growth in the mid to high single digits per year versus low to mid single digits per year for women’s apparel overall. (Source: Citi ). Says LingerieFW™ Founder & Director Lauren Rich:

“It is safe to say intimate apparel has successfully staked its claim as a power player in the greater fashion industry, and as such deserves a high visibility, influential platform to collectively give its growing force of brands their due voice. The goal of LingerieFW™ is to give this voice to the hundreds of beautiful, innovative intimates designers & brands via a channel not only reaching industry but also the consumer – spotlighting & elevating the industry as a whole. Through LingerieFW™, we want to make lingerie & intimates designers household names just as their womenswear counterparts are.”

LingerieFW™ is open to both emerging & established brands worldwide within the following categories: lingerie, loungewear, sleepwear, shapewear, hosiery, lingerie solutions, lingerie accessories, men’s underwear, men’s sleepwear and men’s loungewear.
