Trunk show TFS gathering, are you in?
I hope that it is the first thread for this topic.

We often times receive trunk show invitations and I wonder if people here are up for sharing trunk show information and even better, going together and have a good time!

*to the ones who do not know the term, trunk shows are generally held by boutiques or department stores to present and promote coming collections. They normally take pre-orders that often times require a deposit. *

i think it's a really nice idea and i have done this with luckyme
we went to the Dries trunk show together last season..

but to be honest...
i do not really care for trunk shows..
and i especially do not care for the customer service at Barney's trunk shows...

^ I don't care for Barney's customer service, period. But I've never been to a trunk show, Barney's or any other company, so I can't speak for that particular service.

I only go to Barneys for trunk shows to look at the clothes. I also had very bad experience with their pre-order system so I no longer bother. Yes I think that Bergdorf has better service, too.
The nice thing is that Bergdorf usually have trunk shows at lunch time, but Barneys' trunk shows are normally after work hours. It works better for me

Nothing happened, that's the problem. My mother and I were in the store for over 25 minutes, and not once did an employee come up and greet us or ask if we needed help. It's not like they were busy, either; most of them were just sitting around, watching us like hawks.

It doesn't sound very bad typed out, but really I just felt very unwelcome.

Well at Barneys at least they have models to show them. I found that nice. Also the crowd there is more fashion forward in general. I normally attend just to have a good time there. People watching is fun!

Their sales typically leave you alone. I actually like that. But you are right, some don't even seem to care about their jobs.

I find the SAs at Barneys either waaaay too oppressively attentive or completely ignore me with a 'better than thou' attitude. I'll ask if they have something left in another size and they'll say no, but then I'll find it in the changing room. Or I'll have hordes of them coming to me and introducing themselves and trying to coerce me into a changing room the second I touch an item of clothing.

I would go Caffiene, I like to go just to see what the new season will look and feel like up close so when I see it afar I have something to refer to. besides it is a fun day with friends...but I've learned not to place an order that day. I can't get to the city on tuesday, but as you hear about trunk shows please keep them posted here.
