Milk Studios, NYC

Media previews by Levi's® -in the past-have been swanky parties or even a rtw runway show...but for this Fall's 2013 staging-things were a lot more low key---which means -more time to look at the clothes. Always a good thing.

 CURVE ID-when we wrote up the Curve ID launch-back in the day...the user stats for that blog post even astonished us-that is how big a demand there exists for that revolutionary way to buy jeans.

For Fall 2013=a new flattering /lifting/shaping fabric  new-Revel jeans-for that perfect fit to flatter---the only denim that works for us-straight outta the box -as the expression goes...FYI-different proportions for the different waist/hip ratios-assures the proper style  for the really curvy gals-or the more slim types.
