The deep recession and retail woes did not appear to dampen enthusiasm or attendance at the CurveNY show last week.
Attendance was up 25 percent against a year ago, totaling 1,937 visitors, said Laurence Teinturier, executive vice president of CurveExpo Inc. The three-day fair in Manhattan, which closed Tuesday at The Galleria at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, featured 250 collections from the U.S., France, Italy, Brazil, the U.K. and Canada.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
