The Rebecca Minkoff sample sale opens its doors in about a half hour at 260 Fifth Avenue, and by 11:15 this morning there was already a considerable mass of people forming outside. Our reporter tells us the line is split into two to keep the sidewalk open, and there doesn't appear to be a separate line for Gilt City's VIP express entry. Stay tuned for a full report from inside!
Update: At 11:35am, we heard: "It seems like they're letting in Gilt City members so the line has diminished a little in front. There are probably around 100 people in line now."
Update #2: Here's the full report from inside the sale.
