Ooohhh, Lingerie!!!! (September 15, 2022)

Comexposium USA is pleased to be hosting their first event in Montreal for 2 days on September 18-19th, 2022.

The tradeshow was originally planned in 2020, however due to the pandemic & travel restrictions it was postponed.

Curve Montreal is coinciding with Montreal Fashion week taking place Sept 19th to 25th.

“Mathieu St Arnaud president of MMode, an organization whose aim is to bring together players of Québec fashion industry to promote the industry’s know-how and innovative capability, and his team have been very supportive to bring a Curve event to Montreal.” says Raphael Camp, President of Curve. “Canada was on very strict lockdown, so this is the first time many of the retailers are traveling. Expectations are quite high as the Canadian lingerie community is looking forward to meet, network, & have a chance to preview collections more locally. We are bringing the curated Curve experience of the 50+ best intimate apparel & swim collections to Montreal with ample opportunities for discovering new designers, learning new business strategies, and networking. In particular we are excited to introduce brand MRKNTN, which was selected as one of the 10 talented designers for the prestigious Making the Cut reality tv fashion competition. Supporting new talent was an initiative we started in 2021 with the creation of the Lingerie Briefs Salon, our incubator program that gives space to new designers to showcase their products & Pitch Off, our online design competition. These programs along with new regional shows are important for the growth of our industry. We are listening to the demands of the market and pivoting to fulfill the needs of both brands & buyers.”

“Buying is always the main focus of the Curve shows, however post-Covid retailers are craving experiences. Consequently panels, discussions, & special networking events have become equally important.” says Kirsten Griffin, Communication and Visitor Promotion Director. “After 2 years of shutdown, buyers want to feel connected to the lingerie community, make some memories & have fun too. We worked hard to find a nice of balance at the upcoming Curve Montreal. The show will open with Keynote speaker Gilbert Russell of No Qualms Retail discussing Profitability & Growth for 2023 and in the afternoon Elomi, Freya, Goddess, & Fantasie will host a fit workshop. On Monday Sept 19th buyers are invited to kick off Montreal Fashion Week with a breakfast hosted by MMode and special panel on Diversity & Inclusivity moderated by Julie Buchinger – Director of publications, Clin d’œil & Espaces with speakers: Julie Artacho – Photographer & Anti-grossophobia activist, Mckenna Bisson – Designer & Owner / MAS Montréal, Marikym Hervieux – Co-founder, Personalities Agent & Producer /Humankind MGMT and Chloé Freslon – President /Urelles.

We hope with these new initiatives Curve Montreal will become the go-to destination for buyers & brands to create long lasting relationships both professionally & personally.”

Kevan Hall SS23 “HOTELITO” Collection at New York Fashion Week

Luxurious Stay

As a designer who is known for his lush inspirations and designing richly storied collections, Kevan Hall lives his life on a visual safari of sorts. For Spring 2023, the designer took his sketchbook south of the border to Todos Santos, Mexico, where he found himself enthralled by the burgeoning community of local artisans that call the region home. Hall’s inspiration took final form when he checked into Hotelito, where he was surrounded by a feast of vibrant colors, textures, and clean architectural lines that define the décor of the hotel. The saturated palette of persimmon, fuchsia, yellow, azure, and violet all of which are just a stone’s throw away from the crystal-clear turquoise ocean, are the final ingredients in the fashionable feast of the collection that was sent down the runway for the season.

Hall set out to create a collection that his customers can wear as they go about every aspect of their busy lives. “These are clothes that women can wear effortlessly for day…cotton embroidered dresses, neon brights, summer tweeds, graphic-printed georgettes are casual & chic,” says Kevan Hall. “There are also cocktail dresses and evening ensembles in textured jacquards, taffeta, silk organza, beaded laces and fringe that are at once sophisticated and sexy providing the perfect balance for the modern woman… the woman for whom I design.”

Spring 2023 also saw the launch of a capsule handbag and belt collection, all created in Italy with the interlocked “KH” monogram logo that will be a signature of the collection going forward. The bags are made of some of the finest Italian leathers on the market, some with perforated detailing. The belts are reversible in vibrant color combinations like chartreuse/turquoise, persimmon/yellow, pink/coral, and black/white for a graphic, more classic statement.

The collection all came together in a salon-style showing where models were encouraged to stop, turn, pivot, and pose at a less-than-standard runway pace. The effect was at once classic and “old school” in feel, and yet wholly modern with more than one in the audience smiling with delight as the models of all ages made their way through the breezy, white space that evoked a feeling that truly complemented the inspirational roots of the collection.

Ken Downing, Creative Director of Halston was on hand for the show and summed up his feelings about the collection as, “A shared love of femininity and sensuality, Halston alum Kevan Hall gives women a reason to get dressed up this coming Spring. Fresh florals and ribbon infused tweeds in saturated shades of pinks, coral, yellow, and more, will move effortlessly from day to evening. Graphic black and white brilliantly blocked to contrasting perfection or as an artisanal print came together with shocking pink belts.” Downing concludes, ”I’m in love with Kevan’s cargo pocket ball skirt in pink with a white eyelet blouse and equally as crazy about his candy rainbow beaded fringe on a lagoon blue column, both favorites! Can it be Spring tomorrow?”

Teri Agins, Author and iconic fashion writer, says, “I was just blown away! I’ve watched Kevan Hall since his Halston days. While he’s always been able to conquer the red carpet, which is no small feat, but what he’s also managed to capture with this collection is what today’s elegant, stylish consumer wants to wear in every aspect of her busy day. Kevan’s garments have something extra!” Agins continues, “In Kevan’s deft hands, normally heavy tweeds and weighty beads floated down the runway in springtime perfection – light as a feather. The eyelet was sensational! He has his own mastery of technique that so many others simply lack. Kevan Hall’s Spring 2023 was a tour de force of stylish realness and the casting and pace of the show was old-school cool.”

Broadcaster, Marina LaVoie, grabs the mike by Introducing ‘Luna by LaVoie’

A New Spotlight

The vision for Luna by LaVoie comes from the heart and hands of mother and founder Marina LaVoie, who held an illustrious 20-year career in national broadcast media while raising three young boys alongside her husband. As a modern professional career woman and mother, Marina wears all the hats, pants, coats and bags. She is every woman.

Courtesy: Luna by LaVoie

During her first pregnancy, search as she might, she could not find a bag, backpack or purse for taking care of newborns and young children that fit her fashion-forward style. Most of these bags are bulky, designed with only functionality in mind, not high fashion. Why should expecting mothers sacrifice practicality in the name of quality and style?

Courtesy: Luna by LaVoie

Marina’s search for design inspiration and materials led her to the small village of Sesto Fiorentino just outside Florence Italy. Here, she met a family of craftsmen and women, skilled in the art of Italian leather and able to utilize large swatches of the highest quality skins with care and attention to detail that she had never before seen. The result of this trip is a new lease on life and the beginning of a half-decade journey to create a line of bags and accessories that perfectly blend both fashion and function for the modern mother.

Courtesy: Luna by LaVoie

With this spark, the Luna by LaVoie collection is born. High fashion and uncompromising quality for all phases of a woman’s life. The Luna collection is designed from the start with mothers in mind, while stylish and practical enough to grace the shoulder of any professional, fashionista or world traveler. Every Luna bag features timeless design, ample storage space segmented for practicality, a striking blue-toned water-resistant liner, and sleek, sturdy hardware.

Women are strong, versatile, and beautiful – all qualities you’ll find in the bags of Luna by LaVoie. Today, Marina continues her dream of providing a luxury product for expecting and new mothers. In addition, she is also helping to raise awareness for peripartum and postpartum depression research by donating a portion of each sale to these causes.

In true Negris Lebrum fashion, this Houston, Texas native collection proudly proved why it’s walking at NYFW, going back to its roots starting from scratch, and emphasizing black in most of its dresses, sweaters, and pantsuits, but what Negris fell in love with this season is the color of red, which could be the new black in many respects, plus a multiple color palate in a few pieces that are psychedelic at first glance, but toned down for the mature and advancing 1960’s into into 2022.
