NYC is the home to the ultimate sample sale experience. Unfortunately no one really has a say on when, where, and how often there will be a great sample sale that you can make it to. And for those of you that don’t live in New York, well for years you have been out of luck. Gilt.com is all about changing that experience and bringing great sample sales to those who are really interested in getting the best in designer fashions.
The dress sample sale is historically the most common type of sample sale. With the advent of new technologies, it is much easier for designers to now enter full collections, spare pieces, and one offs into their sales so that dresses no longer completely dominate the sales. That is not to say however that dress sample sales aren’t critical to the designer business or to those who love dresses.
For those who love dresses and want the best in designer fashions then the sample sale is the ultimate solution. Gilt is able to sell designer fashions at up to 70% off of retail through their strong relationships with designers who need to move seasonal fashions out of inventory and into the hands of the public.
Dresses, skirts, blouses and all of the accessories you could possibly want will appear in sample sale collections. And the men are never forgotten. Man can use the site to shop for their wives or girlfriends, or shop for themselves. Pants, shoes, shirts and terrific designer accessories go up for sale on Gilt Man regularly and allow for comparable experiences for the guys in your life.
