Designer trunk shows can be a fantastic way to update a wardrobe with some of the hottest trends in fashion. These trunk shows can feature everything from formal wear and bridal fashions, to casual wear and pieces that encompass upcoming fashion trends. Generally at a trunk show, you are able to purchase the fabulous items on display, or pre-order them for later production or delivery.
Designer trunk shows are typically held at department stores, galleries, and boutiques, and are much more prevalent in larger cities. Because designer trunk shows require a great deal of work, they are generally presented in areas where they will have the biggest, fashion-oriented audience.
Some famous designers have pre-season trunk shows to see the reaction they receive of a new line before production begins. This can also be a great way for a new designer to get some attention brought to their line. And a fabulous resource, for designers that offer custom-made apparel.
For consumers, designer trunk shows are a great way to see new and upcoming fashions, purchase or pre-order them, and sometimes try them on. Drinks and appetizers are typically served as well, and many require dressy-casual to formal dress.
Some trunk shows are private and by invite-only, and may require a connection with either the boutique or store it is being held in or by the designer themselves. Often times, once you attend and purchase from a designer trunk show, you will be invited to future shows. Being included in a preferred customer list or VIP list, is another way people can be invited. Other shows may be open to the public, and are some times the public’s only opportunity to purchase exclusive lines that are normally not marketed to the public.
The best way to find a designer trunk show in your area is usually online. Searching “Designer Trunk Shows” by using your search engine, or following fashion blogs, are a great way to find out about designer trunk shows. If you are looking to see a particular designer, visit their website and browse their event calendar, or add yourself to their mailing list. You can also follow your favorite designers and department stores on social networks such as Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date.
Designer trunk shows can be great window-shopping opportunities for those who like to keep up on the latest fashion trends. And it is a great way for designers to showcase their newest fashions. Attending a designer trunk show is really an amazing one-of-a-kind experience.
