Fashion Sample Sale

Meet Val: Your Sample Sale Guide

Meet Val, your new guide to shopping sample sales. Val was raised watching fashion shows with her mother, who was a designer herself. She would often model the clothing her mother would make, and she jokes that she was a fashion model before she even knew it herself. Over time, Val became very passionate about fashion and design, and always thought she would become a designer herself one day. Last week we hit up the Desigual sample sale at Clothing Line, styled our looks. We received early admission and were able to hit the streets to take these amazing shots! Shout out to to our amazing photographer Ghila

Modeling was something that came naturally to Val. If, like us, you ever get the chance to see her in a photo shoot, that itself becomes apparent. At 17, she was discovered by a modeling recruiter and semi-reluctantly agreed to enter the world of modeling. Val proved to be a success – winning 30 national and international beauty pageants. In 2011, Val one the prize of Miss Universe Germany and was sent to Miss Universe. The entire time, Val continued sewing and creating her own unique designs.

“While I was competing in beauty pageants, I designed and sewed evening gowns for the shows. It was important for me to be able to represent myself, and with the help of my mother, I was successful at creating my own original gowns.”

Val was raised in Germany, and that is what makes her a true New York City girl at heart. After visiting NYC in 2013 for the first time, she packed her bags and walked off the runway straight into one of the fashion capitals of the world. Val loves walking NYC streets. Every day is a new experience for her, shopping, reading and working out. Something unique to New York that Europe certainly doesn’t have in such a quantity is sample sales:

“Sample sales are the greatest thing on earth! You get designer, high quality clothing for discount prices. It’s just awesome!! In my previous job- I would receive samples from work. I knew that designers and stores have sample sales, but I had no idea they could be open to the public- I always thought it was just for press, friends and family. I discovered sample sales in the first week I spent in NYC, which resulted in two extra suitcases to bring back with me.”
