Henri Bendel Open See - April 11th!

NOTE: this was for 2006! Don't have the current date up, but read on for the experience of the Henri Bendel Open See...
Goodness gracious. I almost forgot to think about when the next Henri Bendel Open See might be!

An emerging designer must, here are the designer casting call details. I'm going to take a personal day that day, and go to bed super early in order to get to Bendels by 6 or 7am. I went two years ago to check it out, and the line outside Bendels was very long - and did not move quickly.

Here is casting call information from the Heni Bendel website:

When: Tuesday, April 11, 9:00am-12noon

Where: 712 Fifth Avenue (use 56th street entrance)

What: Bendel buyers will personally review merchandise in the following categories: women's apparel, fashion accessories, lingerie and loungewear, beauty, fragrance, gourmet edibles, and gifts.

Rules: First come, first seen - no appointments. For information call 212.904.7992

EDIT: I went to the April 11th, 2006 Henri Bendel Open See

Read about a Henri Bendel Open See success story in a FashionMista interview with Yasmena Bags. Here's a good article with buyer and designer feedback.

does anyone know what the markup is at Henri Bendel's?

From the design community, rumor has it that the Benels markup for a trunk show is 3.5% to 4.5%. You could try posting the question is this brooklyn indie designers forum and see what they say, if anyone has been to the Henri Bendels Open See...
