The uncertain economy, cautious retailers with slimmer budgets and two competing trade shows created an unsettling environment at last month's New York market.
The precarious climate permeated the month's activities that kicked off with the official Feb. 4 lingerie market at Madison Avenue showrooms, included the CurveNY trade fair at Penn Plaza Pavilion — organizers said the show pulled in 1,190 visitors — and culminated with the three-day Lingerie Americas New York show at the Metropolitan Pavilion and Altman Building, which closed last Tuesday. Lingerie Americas officials said attendance reached 2,415.
