Designer Norma Kamali Allows Customers to Try Clothes Before They Buy

Norma Kamali Says Try Before You Buy . . .

Designer Norma Kamali is doing something other designers ought to copy: she's allowing her customers to try before they buy. Here's how it works: order items you like from the website, try them on in the comfort of your own home, then return the pieces you don't like within 48 hours (you are only charged for shipping).

What's more, Kamali has also introduced Try Before You Buy Parties, where essentially someone hosts a Norma Kamali shopping event at her home. If $10,000 or more is made, the host gets to buy the styles she sold at wholesale and sell them to clients at full price, making a 50 percent profit.

This is an awesome idea! the parties are with all of your friends and I read somewhere else they can be skyped in to shop along. That is a much better atmosphere than any department store!

Brilliant! If more designers or web stores offered this I'd shop online instead!!
