Do you ever dream of getting a crack at Gilt Groupe's warehouse, a huge space in Brooklyn filled with all sorts of designer clothes, shoes, accessories and housewares? No, just us? Well, our (your?) daytime fantasy is about to come true. The flash sale site will be touching down in LA Saturday, April 28 for a huge warehouse sale. The event will be held in Hollywood's Siren Studios on Sunset, and entrance is only available to ticket holders. $15 will buy you first access to the merch (from 9:45am to noon), $10 passes get you in from noon to 2pm and $5 will let you shop from either 2 to 4pm or 4 to 6pm. Tickets are available right now through Gilt City.
The Gilt team is tight-lipped about what will be available, but we do know that there will be men's, women's and children's clothes, shoes, bags and accessories, plus home items, all at 80% off retail. And in the past, shoppers have scored items from Proenza Schouler, Splendid, Current/Elliott, Helmut Lang and Zac Posen. To speed your entry, don't bring a coat or large bag (they will have to be checked), and make sure to have a photo ID and a credit card handy, plus your printed-out ticket (the event is 21+ because they'll be serving cocktails). Eeeeh!
