Designer days, what are they?


If you’ve ever noticed an ad on our facebook or instagram for a designer day or trunk show and thought, what the heck is that?, then this blog is for you!

Wendy loves to visit her stockists when she releases a new collection, and when she does, we call this a designer day. If you book in for a consultation on a designer day, you’ll be able to meet Wendy Makin and try on her latest collection, whether it be her Couture collection, her french collection or her Ready to Wear collection! Designer days are a lot of fun, and well worth the wait. (sometimes there’s even champagne!)

Our trunk shows on the other hand are simply a viewing of Wendy’s collections. Wendy does not accompany her collections on these occasions, but don’t let that put you off! They’re still a load of fun!

So why would you visit a designer day or trunk show at all? Well, apart for being able to meet Wendy at her designer days, and grabbing a sneaky discount if you order on the day, it is your chance to view a larger variety of dresses than you might be able to otherwise! While our stockists can request dresses especially for you to try on, this is the one time most of the collection is in the one place!

So if you’re dying to see a particular collection but it’s not in store at one of our stockists near you, keep an eye out on our Wendy Makin, BellaDonna and Watters facebook pages and instagram for a designer day or trunk show near you!
