WHAT IS A TRUNK SHOW?
A trunk show is an old term which manufacturers in the garment business used many years ago to ship their samples or actual inventory to the retailers in a "big trunk".
Today this tradition still continues to work for the retailer, manufacturer and the customer. These samples or actual inventory shipped to the retailer are the new-styles for the upcoming season, something only retailers see months before the season starts. These trunk shows give you the perfect opportunity to preview exactly what the buyers of Jan's Boutique preview in the New York, California and the European showrooms months beforehand.
You can sometimes purchase these trunk show dresses or special order them in the color and size of your choice at the trunk show. Trunk shows are a wonderful because it allows you to see more styles, enabling you to make an informed decision of which styles would look best on you. Jan's hosts over 50 trunkshows throughout the year. Reservations are only required for select couture and all bridal designers, look to see if you need to rsvp above.
