We covered the Marchesa sample sale this morning during VIP hours. The sample sale is hosted by Shelly & Renee and takes place in the Marchesa showroom on 38th st. There was a nice selection of dresses and gowns organized by color and then size.
Prices were all over the place (as with most Shelly & Renee sample sales). You could find Marchesa Notte dresses for as little as $295 or $395. The Marchesa gowns that were haute couture cost an arm and a leg – we found a gown we like for $2,200 and another one for $4,500.
Since a lot of people asked, we’re putting it out there – there were no bridal gowns at the sample sale. Like, not a single one. So if you are getting married any time soon, this is not where you go – this is where you send your bridesmaids.
All in all, the dresses were gorgeous. And if you like the Marchesa brand like the many women who were fighting each other at the sale to get ahold of a gown, then you should probably hit this sample sale up.
