The Alexander McQueen sample sale is one of the most popular London sample sales and rightly so as there are true bargains to be had. It’s restocked daily so definitely worth a visit.
But, and here it comes, even with the below invite it might be that you can’t attend the sample sale as you might need to be on a list. In the past people got a personal invite by sending a polite email to Alexander McQueen customer services. So either try to get by showing up or send an email and hope to get a personal invite. Good luck!
On 31 May – 2 June (10am-9pm) and 3 June (10am-6pm) at Shoreditch Town Hall, Assembly Hall, 380 Old Street, London, EC1V 9LT.
