Buyers working within the lingerie, nightwear and swimwear trades will have to find additional space in their diaries this coming autumn to accommodate a show new to the USA but likely to be influential on worldwide fashion trends. The event is in fact two fairs in one - Intima, which the organisers say will showcase lingerie, swimwear and nightwear, plus a companion trade fair called Intimatex "which will provide a platform for the manufacturers of fabrics, trimmings and accessories."
