The term "trunk show" may have began in the days when a traveling peddler would ride into town on his horse with a wagon full of wares to sell. In more recent times, the fashion industry has borrowed the term and designers have use it to describe an event in which they preview their new clothing designs prior to release on the runway to selected customers. This more intimate setting gives the designer a chance to get feedback from their target customers and make adjustments on the new styles before committing to the expense of producing the whole line. It is also a way to thank and recognize loyal customers for their business by giving them the first look at the new styles. All the same with Decorating Trunk Shows.
