Sample sales sound like the preserve of characters like Andy from The Devil Wears Prada, right? But no. There are some us mere mortals can go to. And trust us it's worth the humiliation of getting your clothes off/knarly toe nails out in front of people because there are some SERIOUS bargains to be had.

The even better news? Loads start next week. Here's what to diarise whilst you figure out a good excuse to skive off work. Or something.


Erdem Moralioğlu is the master of print and femininity. He's so posh the Duchess of Cambridge wears his stuff. But at this sale, prices start at just £20. Unmissable. (Especially if you're looking for a dress to wear to a wedding you won't worry about anyone else also being in.)

19th May - from 12 – 8pm

20th May - from 8am – 6 pm

White Space, 4 Great Newport Street, WC2H 7JB


One of the best in town, boutique store Joseph’s sample sales include pieces from the main line and their other stocked brands. Which means in the past you've been able to pick up stuff from Miu Miu there. Just sayin’…
