LAS VEGAS-Baci Lingerie is proud to announce $4,400 was raised for the Eileen Stein Jacoby Fund for breast cancer at Baci’s first annual charity dinner. The dinner was held in Las Vegas during Baci’s successful appearance at the 2012 International Lingerie Show (ILS).

Social consciousness and philanthropy are integral aspects of the Baci Lingerie company philosophy. In keeping with the spirit, Baci held its first annual charity dinner on Sept. 11 during ILS.
The dinner gave ILS attendees and Baci customers the opportunity to join Baci in supporting the Eileen Stein Jacoby Fund, a division of the Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia, while enjoying an evening of dinner and drinks at Gordon Biersch.
Baci donated $100 to the Eileen Stein Jacoby Fund on behalf of each dinner guest, and each donation was matched by the Koretsky Family Foundation. All guests received Baci swag bags and Baci breast cancer awareness pins.
The Eileen Stein Jacoby Fund founder Cheryl Stein said, “The Eileen Stein Jacoby Fund would like to thank Baci Lingerie and the Koretsky Family Foundation for their most generous donation of $4,400. Baci is a socially conscious company integrating philanthropy into its everyday business model.”
“We felt the dinner was a great way to combine our desire to fund breast cancer research with an opportunity to further cultivate relationships with retailers and buyers,” said Baci Lingerie Director of Sales and Operations Alicia Sinclair. “Over $4,000 is a great start, but we plan on doing so much more in the years to come.”
The Koretsky Family Foundation owner Frank Koretsky stated, “I was so happy to be a part of this first year event. It’s a great start to an annual fund raising event, which gets others around the U.S. involved with a fantastic charity. I was very proud to match the funds donated by Baci. Thank you to all who attended and the great staff at Baci Lingerie USA.”
Bookending Baci’s charity dinner was Baci’s exhibition at ILS. All three of Baci’s booths were constantly packed with lines of people interested in meeting with Baci’s sales team, all of who proudly wore breast cancer research pins throughout the event.
Baci’s Lash Bar also drew a huge crowd. The Lash Bar gave ILS attendees a chance to get glam’d up with Baci’s extensive collection of natural-look, glamour, and novelty Baci Eyelashes, providing “Glamour in the blink of an eye.” It was the perfect place to stop by before a night out in Las Vegas.
Alicia Sinclair said, “Regardless of which of our three booths I was at, there was always a mass of attendees gathered to see our newest styles and lines. Once again the Lash Bar was a hit, as our makeup artists were busy around the clock.
“Thank you to all who stopped by our booths,” continued Sinclair. “Orders are pouring in as a result of the show. We look forward to making sure everyone’s stores are stocked with the Baci styles their customers love.”
Premiering at ILS, Baci’s plus size lingerie collection brings the brand’s sense of obtainable luxury to women of all sizes. The new line will feature a variety of bras, panties, thongs, corsets, stockings, garters, teddies, and more, all designed to enhance the natural beauty of fuller-figured women and celebrate the sexy in every woman. Each item is photographed using plus size models in the true Baci style because beauty comes in all shapes and sizes.
ILS attendees were treated to a first look at Baci’s packaged men’s wear line, Envy. Envy’s striking styles include, briefs, thongs, boxer briefs, mesh briefs, tank tops, mesh tanks, and more.
The reaction to the Dreams collection was as equally strong as at the 2012 ANME Founders Show, where it debuted. The collection contains erotic bedroom costumes ranging from naughty maids to sexy schoolgirls. Featuring Baci’s renowned style and quality, the collection vitalizes the role-playing experience. Plus sizes and a costume hosiery selection were unveiled as part of Dreams’ new offerings at ILS.
Along with the Dreams and plus size collections, Baci Lingerie offers the high-end Black Label Collection, which contains more than 500 different styles of lingerie and accessories including satin gloves and lace garters. The recently expanded White Label appeals to the playful, erotic nature of those with seduction on their mind.
One of the world’s premiere fashion expos, ILS is the destination for retailers featuring sexy merchandise, from apparel and lingerie to jewelry, foot and headwear, and accessories.
