The AEFFE showroom sale, featuring designers like Jean Paul Gaultier and Moschino for up to 80% off, started today at 10am. According to a tipster, the line outside isn't notably long—but it is notably fabulous: "About two dozen people in line, including a Gaultier fan in white fur, black lace, and crazy not-for-day boots. Also fur headband, false eyelashes." What, you don't put on your best Twiggy face for Wednesday morning sample shopping? [RackedWire; Dealfeed]
