Trunk Shows! Same Sky Jewelry!

Fashion shows are all about glitz and glamour but what about a trunk show? Often, trunk shows find themselves below the radar. I find this strange because they are definitely more accessible to the general public! At a fashion show, one cannot simply buy a garment right off the runway. However, a trunk show is an event in which the vendor presents the merchandise directly to the store and a customer, at a select location. Well-known designers such as, Marc Jacobs, Chanel, Armani- they all have fashion shows AND trunk shows. However, there are some brands who participate in trunk shows that are not so well known. While doing a little research, I came across: Same Sky Jewelry. This past week, on March 22, 2012, The Saks Fifth Avenue store in Beverly Hills showcased a trunk show for Same Sky. The show featured fabric wrap bracelets, prosperity seed bead bracelets, signature hand-blown glass beaded bracelets and necklaces, new Hope necklaces, and hand-crocheted Unity bracelets. Stars such as Maria Bello and Sela Ward were there, supporting the brand and the cause they stand for. The team working for Same Sky, here in America, has hosted a plethora of trunk shows- at homes, venues, stores, etc. In fact, YOU can host a trunk show. Find out more details here and please check out this amazing jewelry, made by amazing people, promoting an amazing cause.

  1. Great post! It is so awesome to see that trunk shows are also being hosted by lesser known designers and for such a great cause. I would love to see more pieces from this show, I bet they were really cool.
