Dedicated followers of local fashion will jump at the chance to pick up designer clothing at bargain prices this weekend.
Local designers Claire Brinsley (left) – behind fashion label Claire Bloom – and Francesca King – who produces Smith & Western – are among several well-known brands to sell their garments at discounted prices at Arrowtown Hall on Saturday.
Others include Kingston’s Jane Sutherland, 3 Bags Full, children’s label Scarlett & Victor, Red Design and Queenstown store Decode.
The popular annual sale, which has been running for more than five years, attracts many women eager for a deal. “It’s an opportunity for us to reward locals who have supported us throughout the year,” Brinsley says.
King adds: “There are plenty of popular styles and it’s a chance to preview new ranges.”
The sale runs from 9am to 6pm. A sneak-peak will also be held at the hall tomorrow from 5-7pm.
