SAMPLE SALE FAQ
HOW DO I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?
Please click the button above to make your Melbourne Sample Sale appointment online. So we can ensure we have appropriate samples ready for your appointment, please be sure to let us know your usual dress size (and if possible, measurements), budget, wedding date and whether you love any particular Anna Campbell styles.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO MY SAMPLE SALE APPOINTMENT?
Please bring a pair of heels, and wear only minimal makeup, fake tan and perfume to preserve the quality of the samples. In case you find "The One", we also recommend you bring a Visa or Mastercard with you as we cannot accept cash, and cannot hold your dress without a deposit being paid. We recommend you check your credit card payment limit before your appointment!
WHICH DRESSES WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE SALE?
The sample sale collection is made up from:
o Ex sample dresses that may have toured the world on a trunk show, been used in our own boutique, or as a media sample.
o Designer samples that we experimented with when designing new collections. Some pieces will look very similar to pieces that eventually made it into our collection, other pieces will be vastly different to anything else you have ever seen at AC!
o Dresses made in discontinued colours or styles
We cannot guarantee that any particular style will still be part of the sale at the time of your appointment, and we cannot place holds on any styles pre-sale. We recommend making the earliest appointment you can to make sure you have the best selection available!
HOW DO I PURCHASE MY DRESS AT THE SALE?
We accept payments via credit card or EFTPOS, excluding AMEX. We do not accept cash or cheque. If you find "The Dress", you can make it yours by paying at least a 50% non-refundable deposit, and we will store your dress in our studio for pick up or alterations. Alternatively, you can pay for your dress in full and take it with you that very day!
WILL ANNA CAMPBELL DO ALTERATIONS ON MY SAMPLE DRESS?
Yes! Please just speak with your stylist for a quote and timeframe for in-studio alterations. See below "Alterations and Repairs" for further details.
HAVE THE DRESSES ALL BEEN DRY-CLEANED?
No. As these sample dresses are all heavily discounted, it will be up to you to have your dress dry cleaned. Because these dresses have been used as samples, we suggest you have your dress dry cleaned before you wedding, however we cannot guarantee this will remove all marks in all cases.
If you would like recommendations as to a dry cleaner, please speak with your stylist and in some cases we can offer an exclusive Anna Campbell ethical dry-cleaning voucher!
