The Bill Blass sample sale, which opens its doors to the public tomorrow at 10am on Seventh Avenue and 39th Street, held a preview today for editors, of which we were lucky enough to attend. We're going to get this out of the way right now: There is a $30 rack. That's right, gowns (some of which need a bit of hemming or altering), dresses and skirts for $30. Aside from that, the sale is filled with Peter Som's fitted, ladylike formalwear at massively reduced prices. Truly beautiful skirts, pants, sweaters and tops are priced from $100 to $300, with coats and some more formal cocktail dresses and gowns priced higher. If you need clothing for holiday parties, this sale should really be a priority.
