Kati Stern, a European-born-and-bred designer, is having her first-ever sample sale. Stern first showed here in the States at Seventh on Sixth in 2004 and has been a hit ever since, a choice of cutting-edge fashionistas.
The sale will feature separates, dresses, cocktail/eveningwear, some fancy-schmancy gowns (her after-eight attire is really va-va-va-voom!), shearling vests, and more…all one-of-a-kind! Prices start at $175 and represent a significant savings off retail, not to mention off wholesale! No charge cards accepted, cash ONLY. Tuesday the 12th and Wednesday the 13th, both days, noon to 5pm at Stern’s showroom, Venexiana, 521 W. 26th St., fourth floor, (between 10th and 11th Aves.); 212-629-6868; www.venexiana.us
