Vera Wang Sample Sale Review

17 July 2015

Vera Wang is nearly synonymous with celebrity weddings, but this week she brings her bridal gowns to the masses at the Soho locations of 260 Sample Sales. The merchandise is divided into three sections: ready-to-wear, samples, and bridal.

Ready-to-Wear items are priced individually, using the following rubric:

The majority of the Ready-to-Wear section consisted of cocktail dresses, most in the $150 to $350 range. The plainer the dress, the less expensive it was. Longer, more formal dresses were $300 to $400. Embellished tops were also abundant, with most styles landing between $100 and $150. Leather shirts are available for $250, and sweaters were around $100 to $150.

There were only two racks of bottoms, which included an assortment of $350 beaded shorts, $100 lace skirts, and $100 patterned pants. There is a full range of sizes, but size 4 and 6 have the widest selection.

A single rack of $20 samples had already been largely picked over, but there are still a handful of dresses in sizes 8 through 12.

The bridal selection was price-as-marked; while I spotted one $500 gown, expect to pay at least $1,000 for the princess dress of your dreams. The most expensive dress is $2,700. A few racks of cherry red, bordeaux, pink, navy and aubergine wedding dresses stand out among the clouds of white tulle. A small communal dressing room is available, but it is hard to imagine more than four wedding gowns squishing in there at a time.

The showroom will be restocked every day. The sale runs through Sunday, July 19th.
