#7 Trunk Shows

Trunk shows are a major part of our industry, particularly for the designers themselves. These shows allows the designers to sit down and talk directly with their consumers to find out what they like and what they don't like. Stores also benefit from the trunk shows because they bring people into their stores but the stores themselves are not in charge of the merchandise presented at these shows.

A "trunk show" is a special sale in which vendors present merchandise directly to store personnel or select customers at a retail location or another unique venue.

Here is an article I found that tells a little more about the benefits of trunk shows.

I haven't attended any trunk shows myself, but hopefully in the near future I will.

Have you ever attended a trunk show?



  1. These events sound so fun and interesting! And I would feel so special to be invited to one, especially a Vera Wang show.

  2. I really like how you explained in depth the benefits of having a trunk show! I attended one before and I think they're really great it is much more of an intimate atmosphere and you get to see the clothing up close.

  3. Trunk shows are really such a great opportunity for designers to create that intimate setting with the consumer. I would love to attend on of these, and I hope to one day soon! great post!

  4. I definitely feel like this post was informative for anyone who didn't know what a trunk show was, or just the difference between a trunk show and a fashion show.

  5. I used to work in bridal at a designer Amsale and trunk shows were very exciting and crucial for brides and bridesmaids to see our dresses and how great they are :) Trunkshows are also a great place to spot sales and special deals!

  6. Love this, bridal is the trend this season, very gorgeous!
