What Is a Trunk Show?

October 9, 2019 Published by Leave your thoughts

Trunk shows are the best way to get a chance to meet up-and-coming clothing and accessory designers, see their styles and get a unique haute couture look. Typically, designers will partner with shops and boutiques to bring a limited supply of inventory. Clothing trunk shows usually offer sample sizes and allow you to order from the line, then ship later. Accessory trunk shows are more likely to have inventory that you can purchase the same day, such as the best eyewear in New Orleans, LA.

This can vary by store and designer, so come prepared to shop and potentially wait for your new fashion. (We know it’s hard!)

Why trunk shows are great for designers

Designers—especially hot, up-and-coming designers looking to establish their brand—can use trunk shows to meet new clientele and develop personal relationships with stores and their customers. You’ll get to meet the people who love and will wear your designs. That personal connection keeps clients coming back for more, and your relationship with the store can lead to them carrying your line. When you promote and stock your trunk show well, you can create promotional buzz and even test drive new lines or designs to see how the public responds to them.

Why trunk shows are great for shoppers

The fashion-conscious shoppers at Art & Eyes know the value of finding unique accessories. Trunk shows attract customers who know the value of independent design and unusual styles—many customers are especially excited to support small or local designers. They also jump at the chance to inspect and purchase limited-edition styles. Although it’s never fun to have to wait for your items to ship, you’ll be happy knowing that you’re sporting the latest styles, designed and created just for clients like you. (It also significantly lessens the chance of couture copycats. If they miss the show, they can’t ape your look!)
