Magic and Curve – The Ever Changing Shows
Have you ever wanted to be in the center of the underwear world and be able to ask brands any questions you wanted? Well that’s me at Magic/Curve. I get to sit down with a lot of the top names in the industry and talk shop. I will admit this week is one of the highlights of my year. I get to catch up with a lot of my underwear friends and see what new things are coming.
Each Magic I post Brief Distractions of previous years. I get to go through the pictures and remember some of the brands I got to see and the undies that were released. This trip marks my 10th trip to Vegas for the shows. It’s hard to believe I have been going this long!
The first time I went was Feb., 2010 and flew up for the day. You may say that is crazy but I flew out Wednesday night, spent all day at the show Thursday. Then took the Red Eye back home and was at a conference at 7 AM. Times have changed, now spend 3 days at the show meeting with everyone from 2(X)ist and Andrew Christian to new brands on the scene.
Looking through my pictures is always bitter sweet to me. I of course remember the good times and brands I plan to meet with at this next show. Then there are those brands that either no longer go to Magic or have gone out of business. Some of these I’m sad about because I got know them well and loved what they were doing. But it’s all part of business right?
This trip will be kind of special since it’s my 10th trip. Each time I go I get to catch up with people I haven’t seen since the last show. I also always get to meet new people and brands. Doing the blog for 6 years, you think I may know every brand out there but each day, at least, one new brand comes on the market. It’s hard to keep up.
I hope this trip I will have good internet like last trip. In previous years you couldn’t get text or cell service. They have upgraded the network and this last trip I could do things. If it’s the same I’m going to Tweet who I am meeting with and what’s happening while in Vegas and LA. So follow me on @unbtim on Twitter and interact with me!
