What’s a Sample Sale? Que Es Un Sample Sale?

How do we get high-end clothes and accessories at low-end prices? The answer is in many cases a Sample Sale.

But what is exactly a Sample Sale?. Sample Sales regularly are organised few times a year by a brand or designer, whenever they have items from excess stock or just to get rid of “samples” (a preliminar idea of their final creation) used for photo shoots or runway shows.

Many of them are organised at warehouses, stores or showrooms, and discounts represent up to 70% of retail prices. These sales are promoted through exclusive mailing lists (PR, stylists, fashion blogs), newspapers or magazines, at times works with RSVP to enter and sometimes you have to pay a small fee which will be destined to charity. Some of them will offer a bar with drinks, so you can unwind at the beats of a DJ while browsing around chic items. I have to warn you: be ready to battle over bargains, as these events sometimes last only a few hours so becomes race against the clock!.

Check out a few pics from a recent Mulberry Sample Sale I attended to investigate from the inside, organized in the exclusive neighbourhood of Mayfair in London.

¿Cómo conseguimos la ropa de alta calidad y accesorios con descuentos increíbles?. La respuesta es en muchos casos una venta de muestras.

Pero, ¿qué es exactamente una venta de muestras?. Las “Sample Sales” se organizan varias veces al año por una marca o diseñador, para deshacerse de exceso de stock o de “muestras” (prototipos de una creación definitiva) usados para campañas fotográficas o pasarelas. 

Muchos de ellos se organizan en depósitos, tiendas o showrooms, y los descuentos representan hasta el 70 % de los precios al por menor. Estas ventas se promocionan a través de listas de correo electrónico (RRPP, estilistas, blogs de moda), periódicos o revistas, a veces hay que enviar un RSVP para entrar y otras se paga una pequeña suma que será destinada a caridad. Algunos de ellos ofrecen barra con bebidas, por lo que puedes relajarte al ritmo de un DJ, mientras revisas los percheros. Debo advertirte: prepárate para pelear por las gangas, ya que estos eventos a veces duran sólo unas pocas horas por lo que se convierte en carrera contra el reloj!.
