(Filed Under wholesale Lingerie News). The International Lingerie Show (ILS), which concluded at the start of April, “was a very good show for us” according to French fetish designer Patrice Catanzaro.
“We had a lot of very interesting contacts. And especially thanks to our collaboration with BODY Magazine, we met a sales agent Mark Rosenfeld (email@example.com, 609-273-3442), who is going to become our representative for the United States. It is going to facilitate the communication with our customers, improve our understanding of the market and to allow the development of our brand.”
Catanzaro said he was “delighted” with the response at the recent ILS, adding, “Our market gets bigger. We now have customers in states and cities where we had nobody.” He listed, as examples of recent additions, Naughty in New Jersey, Spice of Life in Florida, Pretty Kitty in San Francisco, Purple Passion in New York and G Shop in Chicago. The designer said his business in the U.S. is evolving “in the right direction.” The growing number stores here “provides proof that our market is expanding” and represents “moreover our best advertising.” He added that current customers “speaks about our brand to the other shops,” praising “the quality, the finish and designs of our collections. Furthermore we have so many contacts, thanks to BODY Magazine, who see our collections and want to discover us.”
Some of the U.S. retailers who have already done well with the many Catanzaro collections include Wicked Temptations, Pure Delish, Pleasure Chest, Bondesque, Fetish Factory, Blue Shop, Dislocates Lingerie, Gothic Revival, Trystology, Camouflage, Tea Coils Blind, Susie’s Delight, Delicate Illusion and Night Flower.
Upcoming shows for the designer include the ILS in August and Fetish week in Montreal. The show attracts “many American customers,.”
In other news, Catanzaro revealed that he is providing some of his fashions to dress actors in a new movie created by film director Robert E. Ball.
