Curve New York launches Exposed in New York for the first time. Exposed is the alternative event originally starting in Paris that pulls together a selection of lingerie, swimwear, loungewear, activewear, accessories and beauty from mainline designers and emerging names.
Established brands and young designers have been picked selectively, creating an intimate setting. The show will feature just a few brands who have exhibited at our global shows and were tempted by the American adventure. An invitation to Exposed is really sought after, as they are known for pop-up shops in Galeries Lafayette in Paris, and they have an e-shop for brands that exhibit in this section, bridging the gap between event and online presence.
Learn more about the brands that have been selected to be apart of Exposed.
