You know how there are buses of Asian tourists who only travel to the United States to shop at Woodbury Common? Well, what’s the chance that that would work the other way around?
The Chinese tourism board is hyping a mega Chinese sample sale dubbed, “Asia’s First Billion Brand Sale.” The event is located at the Venetian Macao-Resort-Hotel, “a luxury lifestyle, retail and entertainment complex” — we think it’s a mall on a touristy island.
The four-day sale, which starts on Feb. 19th, includes more than 150 designers at “prices worth fighting for.” Where have we heard this tag line before? Century 21, perhaps? They even seem to have captured their branding image.
Nonetheless, prices are up to 90% off and the resort’s store directory includes, M Missoni, Wolford, Vilebrequin and Fiorucci. We’re dying to find someone willing to fly to the other side of the world to check it out for us. We’ll pay the bus fare!
