Today's New York Sample Sales

New York's sample sale scene is second-to-none, making it the best city on earth to find a fashion bargain. Read more >

What is a sample sale?

The seasonal and constantly changing world of fashion means that brands often have items left over from past seasons, runway shows or the design and production process that they've collected in their offices or warehouses. Sample sales are sales events - often held in dedicated showrooms or event spaces - where you can buy these items at a significant discount on their normal retail value. Many sample sales discount between 70% to even 90% off.

Sample sales are often an experience in themselves - popular sales will frequently have queues to enter, you might have to store your coat or bag in a cloakroom, and you will often be competing with other shoppers to find and buy the items you want before others do. You you'll often find samples come in limited sizes, and you shouldn't expect the perks of proper luxury clothes shopping - many places don't have changing rooms and you're not likely to get a personal shopper!

Items bought in a sample sale are usually sold as is, and you won't be able to return them. Many sample sales accept cash and card, but check before you go, as some will be cash only or card only.

What brands have sample sales in New York?

New York has one of the worlds most vibrant and eclectic fashion communities, and the sample sales match! You'll find sales ranging from luxury brands and high street labels through to independent and emerging brands. The sample sales for luxury and high street brands are often quite practical affairs where you are there to grab a bargain as quickly as possible - but the independent and emerging events can be a great way to discover a brand's clothes, meet the designers, and sometimes enjoy entertainment or drinks alongside the sales.

Along with sample sales organised by the brands themselves, there's also a rich calendar of sample sales organised by third parties or collectives. For example Shelly & Renee organise New York sample sales on behalf of many luxury brands and European labels, and companies like Soiffer Haskin and Clothingline host sample sales in their spaces all year round as well.

When is New York's sample sale season?

Because the fashion scene in NYC is so big, you'll find sample sales all year round - but the most common periods, or "sample sale seasons", are when the fashion seasons come to an end. Spring Summer sample sales often happen between April to June, and Autumn Winter sample sales happen October to December. These are the times that you really want to keep an eye on the sample sale calendar, and make sure you don't miss your favourite brands!

The Chicmi Team Say

Now that President's Day weekend is coming to a close, what does this week hold for us? Well, there's a whole raft of New York sample sales to enjoy, from a great range of high profile brands too - so plenty of opportunity for bargain hunters to delight!

Starting on Monday then, and we've got a bunch of three New York sample sales continuing on from the weekend - there's the Sweet William childrenswear sample sale in Brooklyn; the multibrand SWORDS-SMITH sample sale, also in Brooklyn and featuring brands like Creatures of Comfort, M.PATMOS, Eleven Six and Assembly New York; and finally, the recently extended Sock Hop sample sale which includes apparel and accessories from a selection of brands. All three of those end on Monday so get them while you can! Also on Monday you've got the last week of the CREMIEUX menswear New York sample sale at their showroom on Mercer Street.

Tuesday is where all of the new action kicks in though, with four new top brand New York sample sales to spend your well-earned dollars on! First up is the Derek Lam sample sale at Clothingline, open for three days and featuring women's ready-to-wear in all sizes. Then you've got The Arrivals' New York sample sale at their pop-up on Crosby Street, which will have a limited selection of archive pieces available at bargain prices. Or if you'd prefer, there's the Roberta Roller Rabbit sample sale with nightwear and accessories at up to 70% off. That's on for five days at 260 Sample Sale on Fifth Avenue. And last but not least, there's the Gerard Darel and Figue sample sale happening at 260 Sample Sale's Greene Street location in SoHo, also open for five days!

Once those four open, that's pretty much the game plan for most of the week, with only one new New York sample sale to announce on Saturday, featuring luxury fine jewelry from Kwiat and Fred Leighton, and happening at Soiffer Haskin for four days through to the end of the month.

And that leads on nicely to the shocking fact that we're on to the last week of February next week, and the New York sample sale calendar is heating up quickly - with brands like Tory Burch Sport, Wolford, Eileen Fisher, Desigual and more already firmly in the diary. Make sure to follow us on social media and sign up to our mailing lists, because we're sure to be adding many many more in the weeks to come!
