New Venue, New Stock, Low Prices
If you love designer labels without the designer price tag, then usually or the only hope would be to plough the charity shops in the hope of some good quality clothes. I have managed to pick up a few good items this way, such as a red Jerry Webber top with black leather lacing, but fortune like that does not come around very often.
But the second hand clothes are not your only option; it is possible to get low prices on new high end fashion. How, you ask? Rather the question is who? Designer Sales UK is a company that started in the 80s, with a goal of bringing trendy brands to the public at affordable prices. They stock stunning womenswear, gorgeous menswear, and accessories galore, all of which have a sought after designer label. You will find names such as Belstaff, who specialise in leather, the Italian designer, Valentino, and the leading international luxury shirt brand, Thomas Pink.
The best time to snatch a bargain is at one of the Sample Sales, which occur regularly throughout the year. The next Sample Sale is in celebration of the company's newest venue in Mayfair, at 56 Davies Street. Being just around the corner from Bond Street Tube Station, it is easy to get to. The sale will be held on 21st of March between 12pm - 7pm. There is a £3 entrance fee, but you'll make big savings once you get inside, with some items up to 90% the RRP.
If you are a super serious fashion freak, and want to beat the crowds, then you can buy VIP tickets for £30. The ticket gives you an hour's early entry, plus a glass of champagne, a goodie bag worth £75, and a £10 if you spend over £100.
