What is a Trunkshow?

A Trunk Show can be the exclusive opportunity to try on the full collection from a bridal boutique’s roster of designers. Often, there will be unseen looks from their latest collections in addition to the core lines, which will be on site to try on for a limited time frame. In many instances, it may also be the first time a designer has shown at that boutique. Booking is essential.

A Trunk Show is a rare and exciting opportunity to meet the designer or a brand representative in person, who will be at your side throughout a personalised appointment to help you choose the dress of your dreams and answer any questions as well as make bespoke alterations or special additions to your look.
