August is quite a big month in the lingerie world. Not only will New York City be hosting the Lingerie Americas trade show, but also National Underwear Day (more about that soon!) and the CILA (Contours International Lingerie Awards) Awards! And of course, we at TLP, will bring you all the important information and advancements in the world of lingerie.
On Monday, August 6th, Contours Magazine will present the 2nd annual CILA Awards at the exquisite Waldorf-Astoria in New York. Conceived by Ben Yedder, publisher of Contours, this event seeks to not only raise awareness of the role in which the ever-growing intimate apparel industry is playing on the fashion world but also celebrate the amazing talent of the designers bringing us those must have items! The event will begin with a cocktail party at 6:30 followed by dinner and a fashion show featuring the five finalists from each of the 16 categories including Best T-Shirt Bra, Best Nightwear Glamour, Best Bridal, Best Maternity, and more! Awards will be given to the winners of each category that evening as well. With brands such as Eberjey, Elle MacPherson, Panache, Simone Perele, and Chantelle being represented, it is sure to be a fantastic show.
