Did you know? It is trunk show season here at Larrimor’s and we are in full swing. A typical trunk show is when the fashion designer or vendor brings their line to a boutique for a special in-shop showing for the store’s customers.
Generally, but not always, accessories vendors bring stock pieces they can sell during the event while clothing vendors bring samples, take orders, and ship the items later (usually 6-8 weeks out). A typical show is three days long, normally Thursday-Saturday, depending on the store, the designer, their wants and needs, and their relationship.
A trunk show is a special event not to be missed and offers customers a very exclusive and fun experience along with many benefits!
If you find yourself liking multiple styles from the same designer a trunk show is a wonderful opportunity to narrow down your search. Most likely some of the dresses you’ve been eying on the Internet or in magazines will be from the designer’s new collection, so a trunk show would be your chance to see them first and try them on. Representatives from the company are at a trunk show to offer their expert knowledge and answer any questions you may have about a style or custom changes.
