House of Brides announces the date for the upcoming trunk show in November. The trunk show will showcase the designerâs 2011 wedding dress collection, which will be on display for customers to view and try on. Special incentives are often offered during trunk shows.
The Couture salon in Chicago will host the designer show exclusively. The Sophia Tolli Couture Trunk Show is Friday November 11th, Saturday November 12th and Sunday November 13th.
Designers and retailers use trunk shows to preview and feature a collection. The term âtrunk showâ was coined from designers transporting their bridal gown samples in steamer trunks to studios.
House of Brides Couture was originally located on Michigan Avenue in the popular shopping district. The salon later moved to its current location in River North. President Eva Buziecki said, âThe store moved so our customers could get an exclusive shopping experience. The River North neighborhood offers boutique shopping without the tourist attractions of Michigan Avenue.â
The salon is located at the corner of Franklin and Superior Avenues. As Brides enter the doors, they are presented with a vast showroom. The showroom has a loft feel with exposed brick and ductwork. The salon has a boutique feel with Gold tones and luxurious decor. Couture wedding dresses, jewelry and accessories are all on display with seating and staging areas on the perimeters of the showroom. A large bridesmaid and special occasion department is located at the back of the store.

They also bring the brides to the stage area to capitalize on the bridal experience.â
