CURVE’s New Account Program gives buyers another reason to open new accounts.
When a buyer opens a new account at a CURVE session, they are eligible to participate. When buyers open a new account with a brand, they can fill out an entry form with the brand representative and drop the form at a registration desk. This will enter them into the raffle for our grand prize!
The Grand Prize? A trip to visit UNIQUE by Mode City in Paris on July 6, 7 & 8, 2019.

CURVE LAS VEGAS, FEBRUARY 2019 WINNERS:
Tell us a little about your store. Where are you located? What are you excited about for the new season?
Nikki’s Beachhouse Boutique has been open since 2007, and we are located in Miami, Florida. Our first location is nestled in South Miami, and our second location, which opened up 4 years later, is located in Coconut Grove. Both boutiques are strategically located in high-end suburban areas with heavy foot traffic. We carry an array of brands in swimwear, clothing, jewelry and accessories. As a buyer, I get very excited every year about discovering new designers, brands, styles and innovative products that I can bring into our stores.
What was your reaction when you found out that you won the raffle?
At first I thought it was a joke- me, win a raffle? I don’t think so. Lol. It wasn’t until I got the email from Kris and confirmed that this in fact was actually true that I screamed for joy!! To be honest with you, the excitement hasn’t left! It is truly amazing to win this prize. Many, many thanks.
How are you going to take advantage of your prize?
I’ve been a buyer for 12 years now, and I’ve visited several trade shows in the United States. I cannot wait to see what European trade shows are all about (especially in Paris — the capital of fashion) and identify what new and exciting brands and products I can bring into the states, and be the first one to offer them to my customers.
What has been your favorite experience at CURVE?
I love the whole vibe — vendor’s setups, talking to people, connecting, and having the opportunity to see designers and brands that I haven’t seen in the other trade shows I’ve attended. For example, Othersea swim. I find that their designs, fabrics and creativity are very different. The show as a whole is just something I am very thankful I got to experience. I love my job!

Nikki’s Beachhouse opened a new account with:
Othersea consists of two girls passionate about art and commerce, but especially about BIKINIS. On one of their surfing treks through California, the girls realized their dream: to create trendy yet resistant swimwear that could stand the force of LA’s 6-foot-tall waves. In May 2016, Othersea released their first collection. Currently, Othersea consists of 2 owners, 4 seamstreses, and a wide range of stakeholders. Othersea’s greatest desire is to allow customers to live the Othersea adventure as they live it.
