Recap: theCURVYcon 2018
That’s a wrap on theCURVYcon 2018! And what a year. Thank you to everyone who visited the ELOQUII booth this year—we loved meeting you and had a blast shopping! Have theCURVYcon FOMO? We missed you! But never fear - we’ve recapped all the exciting moments that happened over the weekend!
Celebrating our all who descended on the Big Apple for theCURVYcon and NYFW, our booth’s theme, “I #XOQ NYC” showcased the fabulous personality of the city that never sleeps. Our picture-perfect backdrop included a 3D model of the New York skyline sketched out in featured ELOQUII fall prints. What’s not to love about a houndstooth skyscraper? And of course, theCURVYcon experience isn’t complete without shopping! In true ELOQUII style (and substance 😉), we showcased two of our newest fall collections for on-trend showroom shopping.
Our friends and customers took #XOQs in new styles or their #OOTDs in front of our skyline and added themselves to our Polaroid #XOQ wall, which quickly became a weekend “Hall of Fame” as the number of autographed #XOQs grew over the two day shopping period. We loved seeing all our friends, teammates, and customers add themselves. A highlight of the weekend, the #XOQ wall now sits proudly in our NYC conference room as a fond memento from the conference.
In our booth, we debuted new styles from our “Check Please” and “Power Play” fall collections. The definitely winners were our Tie Neck Ruffled Hem Mini Dress, Boucle Teddy Coat, and Print Block Coat — a fan and Polaroid wall favorite! All customers who shopped also received a custom I #XOQ NYC branded Pocket Scoop Neck Tee with their purchase for immediate wear. And to top it off, all who visited received a customer NYC pin designed by our customer Amanda Stilwell of Last Craft Designs. ELOQUII super fans will remember the lovely pink #XOQ hearts Amanda designed for last year’s event—so nice we had to do it twice!
The weekend saw much joy, laughter, and dancing, both from our customers and team members alike. Described as “alumni reunions,” “prom,” and “homecoming” all in one, theCURVYcon 2018 was definitely a weekend we’ll never forget! Thanks again to everyone who visited! Have ideas for 2019?
