Alice and Olivia Sample Sale: Ready-to-Wear, Handbags & Shoes

The Alice and Olivia sample sale kicked off this season at 260 Fifth Avenue and goes through this Sunday, June 17th.

édité Showroom Sample Sale

The showroom, édité, near FIT has been hosting a sample sale this week at its offices. We had not heard of the brands the showroom carries (chic French label Diega, Yeah Bunny, bags from Delage) so we stopped in after work yesterday (May 24) to check it out. We primarily focused on the pieces from French women's contemporary label, DIEGA. They offered both fall [...]

The Charlotte Olympia sample (blowout) sale kicks off to the public on Tuesday, May 22nd. The designs are  “inspired by a bygone era of old Hollywood glamour.” The footwear is handmade in Italy.

Slow Start to Edun Sample Sale; Mostly under $100

The sustainable fashion label EDUN is hosting a sample sale this week at its showroom on Grand Street in Soho. Today is the first day of the sale and a line had formed outside the sale room this morning just as they were opening. It was short compared to other sample sales. But the problem was they got a late start and were only letting in a couple of shoppers at a ti[...]

Her designs are bold and colorful that bring character to interiors. Her fans have counted on her hand-printed textiles, rugs, and vintage pieces. The sale offers plenty of coveted items.
