Trunk Show.......... What do you thinK?

Recommended Posts

So I found out that many of the dresses I love (Essence of Australia and Ella Bridal) are having a trunk show in San Diego the very same weekend I will be there visiting a friend and her new baby that is due any day now.

 

I know nothing about Trunks shows, I dont even really know what they are. It is from 10-5. How much time should I plan on being there? Are new styles and old styles found at Trunk shows? Are the dresses all samples? Can you buy at the show? Thanks blush2.gif

I got my 2nd dress from the Watters trunk show. There was a 10 % discount. They had the fall 09 collection which hasn't hit the salons yet. I say GO! :) It was like a regular appointment with a representative of the designer there. They were not samples you could take with, I ordered mine. They even put a rush on it for me for no extra charge since it was my second dress and my wedding is in 3 months.

You may get to meet the designer, which is pretty cool. Most trunk shows will offer you a discount if you buy that day, so do your research, know what you want and how much you're willing to spend, and be prepared to maybe make a purchase that day! Very exciting!

I also loved Essense of Australia and found a trunk show happening in a town 5 hours away from me. The savings would have been worth the drive one time, but they told me I had to pick it up from their store once it came in. So, 20 hours of driving didn't end up being worth $175. The thing about it was that I loved an Essense dress that my local store didn't get in, and it was at that particular trunk show. I ended up paying $50 for their "loner" program. I guess the wind up is, you could save a good amount of money, and you'll be in town anyways. I would just make sure that they can send it to your house when it comes in.

I purchased my dress at a trunk show. For purchasing it, they gave me a 15% discount, free veil (that i can design myself), plus free bust to floor hem. Usually, during designer trunk shows, the designer will bring in the new-next-season dresses, even before it's out to the public.
