IT’S ALL ABOUT THE FOUNDATION: Gemini Magazine and Lane Bryant Team for Cacique Collection Preview and Bra Fitting Event


NEW YORK—June 11, 2010— Any woman knows, the key to looking chic in that new outfit starts with the proper “foundation.” The old saying, “you are only as strong as your foundation.” is a phrase that applies to almost anything in life and is also a key lesson in fashionable intimate apparel – the foundation to any great look! Gemini Magazine, an Atlanta-based “curve-friendly” publication, and full figured fashion retail giant, Lane Bryant, are hosting an afternoon of cocktails and “intimate” fashion chat featuring the newest collection of Cacique® lingerie at the store’s Herald Square (NYC) location on June 19th—dedicated to helping full figured women to create a sexier, more beautiful self.
“We are extremely excited to be working with Lane Bryant,” says Gemini Magazine Publisher Sommer Johnson. “For years, they have been showing the curvy community that it is what’s underneath that truly counts. And now, Gemini gets to be an integral part of showcasing that philosophy.”
Featuring a presentation from famed The Curvy Girl’s Guide to Style author, Chastity Garner, with the assistance of plus model and TV host, Asia Mone’t, guests will learn the secrets behind finding the perfect bra to create an exceptional look using the Spring/Summer collection from Lane Bryant’s Cacique line. After the chat, Cacique specialists will be on hand to assist attendees with fittings and building a beautiful fashion foundation.
To further the mission of the event of “creating a sexier you,” guests will receive a chick-friendly gift bag featuring new products from Braza Bras, Hark Designs, ChicBuds, Jane Carter Solution, Zestra, Chrystalyn Jewelry, Sleek MediSpa and more all while sampling Golden Star Tea’s White Jasmine Sparkling Tea and hors d’oeuvres by Dining with Grace.
