Designer Sales UK

Heard the words ‘recession’, ‘frugality’ and ‘credit crunch’ to the point of breaking?

Already maxed out your credit cards?

On the verge of attending the next shopaholics anonymous meeting, but still can’t stop thinking about shopping?

Maybe the events cunningly provided by Designer Sales UK  are the solution for you.

April’s sales session took place at the Old Truman Brewery in Brick Lane, east London, and there’s more to come in May’s forthcoming fix in west London. But don’t expect a cosy, romantic, barocco vintage sample sale atmosphere. Think big warehouse-style, no frills shopping, with over 100 rails of designer clothes at a fraction of the price.

Designer royalty Vivienne Westwood, John Galliano and Roberto Cavalli are all featured along with up-and-coming names like Yuchi, English Eccentrics, East by East West and You Are The Brand.

Don’t miss the Maison Martin Margiela rail (my favourite designer) as the ’90s minimalist trend makes a come back this season with clean cuts, plain white and black clothing. And ladies, don’t be afraid to drag your other halves along, as there will be men’s fashion galore. From gorgeous D-Squared suits down from £1,900 to £500, and cool T-shirts from the Yes No Maybe label.

Check out the extreme make-up demonstrations as London Fashion Week make up artist Pamela Cochrane works her magic on real people. You can even sign up to model for the next catwalk show that will take place in October.

Elaine Foster Gandey, a fashion veteran who used to work with Jasper Conran and John Galliano, and the woman at the helm of Designer Sales UK, runs around 10 events a year, mainly in London. If you missed April’s, prepare yourself for the next one-day sale on Saturday 8 May in Notthing Hill’s trendy new venue the Supper Club.

Designer Sales UK is on Saturday 8 May, 12pm-4pm at:

Supper Club
12 Acklam Road
Notting Hill
W10 5QZ
