Vivienne Westwood & Malo Sample Sale

The same folks, IT USA, who organized the Galliano, Cavalli and Costume National sale in March are hosting this week's Vivienne Westwood and Malo sale in the Garment District.  Deals of 60 percent off retail can be had for Ms. Westwood's handbags, shoes and other accessories.
