I just saw that a boutique near me is having both Allure and Maggie Sottero trunk shows this fall. Is it worth attending? How do they work? Can you actually buy a gown at one or is it more of just a fashion show? Anybody attended one of these?

it’s basically just a bunch of dresses, mostly new and that aren’t necessarily always carried by that store. Yes, you can buy a dress there and there is usually a trunk show discount.
I didnt buy my dress at one, but Lazaro was having a trunk show a couple of weeks after I bought my dress and they said I could come back and meet him. So me, the lady like my mom and my DHs stepmom and little sister went back and they got to see my dress for the first time and we got to meet Lazaro and he did a sketch of my dress for me!

You can buy. There is usually a discount. Also, because they are limite time there is more of a pressure to purchase at that moment

They usually will bring in dresses for the particular designer that they may not usually carry. Sometimes the designer is there too. I got my dress at a trunk show and got a nice discount and added customizations for free. It was a very high end boutique so was very happy to save a bit. Very worth it!

Thanks all! I’ll definitely plan on attending, then! Especially the Maggie Sottero trunk show.
