The Sachin & Babi – known for its special occasion dresses and gowns – is hosting a three-day sample sale this week. I checked it out a few minutes after they opened this morning and found the showroom filled with shoppers.

The customers were clearly fans of the brand. There were groups of mothers and daughters as well as friends all looking for a dress for the next formal occasion or party.

Pricing is similar to past sales. Samples are $75 for outerwear, leather and gowns and $40 for “others.”

Stock (size ranges from 2-12) are $200 (long dresses and gowns), $125 (short dresses, tea length dresses, ball skirts and jackets) all other stock items are $75.

Actual samples are along the far end of the space and were already going fast. There’s more stock and production pieces available. I saw plenty of cocktail dresses and gowns that were signature Sachin & Babi. In addition, I did see a few repeats from the past sale.

No dressing room, just mirrors. Many of the customers were trying pieces on the sales floor.
