Wedding season is truly in full swing. I searched for “Trunk Shows” in Minneapolis and found a bunch coming up. Anne Barge, Watters & Watters, Reem Acra, Allure, Birnbaum & Bullock, Ramona Keveza, Elizabeth Fillmore, Christina Wu, Tony Federici and Vera Wang. All these trunk shows are happening within the next 6 weeks. Wow.
Now, I understand the draw of trunk shows, get in, check out dresses and get yours before they are typically available to the general public. But, as these are public shows, aren’t you “technically” the general public? If I were to attend a trunk show, I want an invitation-only event with champagne. Oh yes, if I get an invitation and its a private event, sign me up. If not? No thanks.
