ALL OF THE GOWNS IN THE GOWN SALE ARE NEW. Over 70% of the gowns in the sale this year have come straight from the designers and have never even been tried on!! The regular retail of these gowns are anywhere from $699-$2499, and will be priced from $299-$999 (there are only about 10-20 gowns that are $899 and $999, respectively, to be clear). The rest of the gowns are samples from the shop that have been tried on, some more than others. Of these, many are current gowns that can still be ordered, and some are older or discontinued gowns. A few may need a new zipper or need to be dry-cleaned, and are priced accordingly. There are seamstresses on-site to advise on alterations and any repairs. The regular retail of these shop dresses are $499-$2599, and most are priced $99-$799 (some are even less than $99). Most of the gowns in the fashion show will be available for sale after the show, but not as deeply discounted as those in the sale!
