Let's be real, there's no shortage of trunk shows at Neiman Marcus. The store boasts an impressive schedule of shows and designer appearances, but while we're all for a little luxury now and then, sometimes the couture being featured can be a bit inaccessible.
August's trunk show lineup is something of an exception. While the designers that take the forefront at Michigan Avenue's store next month aren't exactly affordable, they certainly are household names—at least, assuming your household sometimes tunes in to E!'s red carpet coverage.
Dolce and Gabbana is up first. The new collection will preview at the store's Designer Sportswear section on August 23 from 10 am to 4 pm. Valentino is up next, stopping by the store's Couture Salon August 27 and 28 from 10 am to 4 pm.
Not up to dropping a huge wad of cash on any of the items? You don't have to. Simply stop by, check out some incredible goods and maybe even pick out the gown you'd wear if you ever had the chance to attend the Oscars.
