Q. Where and when can I find sample sales?
A. The Fashion Center compiles a list of sample sales in the District on our website but this is by no means entirely comprehensive.

If you walk down Fashion Avenue, you are likely to learn about at least a few sample sales in the area vis-a-vis the fliers handed to you.

Q: Where can I buy the Fashion Center Source Book?

Of course, you can always download Source Book here on our website. Just be sure to contact the businesses before going as locations and hours are subject to change.
