A Racked informant notes that sample sales fatigue has hit Soho: "The Temperley sale had soooooo many less customers than the one a year ago. Last summer's was relatively packed. I remember being one of about six people in the smaller fitting room, and everytime someone left, someone new came in. This time I had the larger fitting room to myself for a LONG period of time. And even later there were only 3 people in it. I didn't buy anything, and didn't see anyone else buy anything either. Obviously the economy is even affecting sample sales." [RackedWire; Previously]
