Other Questions

What is a trunk show?

A trunk show is an in-store event by an individual designer, this usually takes place lasting one to three days, where you can view and buy from a designer’s latest collection long before they hit the stores here in Australia. When finding the dress of your dreams at a trunk show, it is always good to be prepared to make a decision that day, as gowns will not be in store once the trunk show is finished.
