During three days of rainy July, Chelsea Old Town Hall walls hid lots of designer clothes. Those who knew that could really get good value for less money. Next chance comes in September!
During designer sale atmosphere of fashion is felt from the very entrance. Clothes rails with top designers' dresses, shoes, accessories, shirts and many more are welcoming both ladies and gentlemen. As they enter they can immediately duck into the rails and find some real jewels. "There was a client who got a Martin Margiela's t-shirt for ₤5 and was just so excited. On our sales you can find things like that – for as little as ₤5 or ₤10" – says Elaine Foster-Gandey, general manager of Designer Sales UK who organizes the event.
It's not only advertising claim but a reality. From the clothes which were displayed on the racks guests could have easily chose one or two looks for ₤50-₤100. "There are lovely purses for around ₤20 which with little dresses by China Doll for ₤35 can make fabulous look. The other option can be Vivienne Westwood pair of shorts for ₤39. You put them with the t-shirt and purse and another look is ready" – suggests Elaine. Some of ready to wear looks were shown on the mannequins but customers loved them so much they were sold in first minutes of the sale.
All of these is accompanied by great atmosphere created by staff and all of the customers. After all they all gather for one purpose – high fashion for low prices. From time to time real people catwalk accompanies the sale and that time clothes are being presented by people who don't have their legs to up to the neck but look like me and you. It's also a great chance to become a model yourself.
Such sales are becoming more popular but it's not always easy to find them. Therefore, it's good to know that Designer Sale UK takes place ten times a year. Next one is going to be on Wednesday 19th September in The Music Rooms in Mayfair. It'll be open between 12.00am and 7.00pm. Check the website for the dates of the following events which will be organized before Christmas.
