Trunk Shows

The Wardrobe becomes more service-oriented every month & every year:

Style coaching, free events of all types and great trunk shows from our designers!

Our shoppers know that a trunk show allows you to have it your way, putting looks together in a way that makes you successfully and impressively attired. They allow you to ‘be the buyer’, focusing on colors that work for you and sizing that is just right.

Some additional benefits of our trunk shows:

  • Free gift with purchase
  • Occasional gift card drawing
  • Refreshments
  • Informal modeling
  • Free shipping on all orders
  • EDUCATION: “Style is an on-going journey that allows us to know ourselves and learn how to express ourselves through color and head-to-toe authentic apparel and accessories.” – Heather Caswell

Joseph Ribkoff Trunk Show Event Graphic at The Wardrobe in Davis, California


One women’s apparel designer has created a winter 2017 line that can fill
a closet with such diversity that it looks like the wardrobes of ten or more great designers.   This line is coming to Davis on Saturday, November 4th from noon to 5PM. Wardrobe’s owner and stylist Heather Caswell introduces her Joseph Ribkoff Trunk Show.

“Fashion trends from around the world, fitting the needs and desires of today’s multi-tasking women of all ages, are all brought together by this very popular north American designer,” says Caswell.  The most desirable fall and winter colors will be featured in everything from cover-ups, tops and tunics to dresses, coats and pants.  The fabrics, textures and weights will vary to suit our climate and those of our guests who travel for business and pleasure.

Caswell says each year her designer trunk shows give guests a chance to see a large range of options and then to order their own sizes and select the jewelry, shoes and other accessories to complete their wardrobes.  She is proud of the fact that her store supports and features designers and manufacturers in the United States and neighboring countries in the north and south American continents.   Her collections are chosen to enhance a variety of body sizes to create a “stylish and exciting” look for everyone.

The Wardrobe, a 29-year-old merchant in Downtown Davis, has guests from all over the state and western states and has been a Best of Sacramento winner, as well as the 2017 Best of Yolo County Reader’s Choice award recipient.

Special gift-with-purchase on Ribkoff items as well as a chance to win a $300 Joseph Ribkoff gift card.

Thursday, September 28 – Monday, October 2nd

Sympli Art Couture Fashion Show kicks off the event:
Thursday, September 28th from 5-8pm
Limited Seating! RSVP only:
Fashion Show starts at 5:30pm // Special orders available until 8pm

Friday, September 29th through Monday, October 2nd: Sympli Trunk Show continues (Sizes 2-22 in 27 colors!)

“Women love who they are and want clothes that suit their character…
and to feel confident” — that’s the culture behind Canadian manufacturer Sympli which launches its Fall 2017 line at The Wardrobe in Davis with a fashion show Thursday, September 28 leading into a 5-day trunk show through Monday, October 2nd. There will be a free gift offered with every Sympli purchase during the event week.

Local Wardrobe shopper Laurie Treacher tells friends that this line of “wrinkle free and machine washable fashions” has catapulted many women to “best dressed in the room” because every style and most of their colors are  designed to mix and match.  Sympli solves the problem  of having a wardrobe  made up of a “string of exciting garments that irresistibly crossed your path over time but left you with nothing to wear!”

Style coach and Wardrobe owner Heather Caswell notes that Sympli has just added five new colors to its 22 regular options.  Since she can’t stock every top, bottom and dress in every color and size, she organizes two Sympli trunk shows each year “to allow shoppers to have it their way — by custom ordering looks in sizes from 2 to 22 and then accessorizing with The Wardrobe’s fabulous shoes, accessories and jewelry options.”

Refreshments and personal styling assistance from her knowledgeable associates will be available throughout the five days and Caswell says there will be other surprises for her visitors.

Pamona Purdy's Jewelry Trunk Show Debut Graphic June 17th

Join The Wardrobe for a “Pamona Purdy Trunk Show” this Saturday, June 17 from 12-5 pm.

This is a debut event for Pamona Purdy who is known for her one-of-a kind distinctive earring and necklace designs handcrafted with gemstones such as labradorite and lapis and crystals in the Sacramento Valley. Her passion is to design beautiful handcrafted jewelry that has a charisma all its own. Like the women that wear Pamona’s Jewelry, the collection possesses that x-factor quality and a “je ne sais quoi” that is the finishing touch on getting dressed for the day.

“In a world where we are bombarded by the mainstream and mass produced, Pamona’s designs celebrate the women who choose to stand boldly outside the box and be genuinely individualistic in their style choices.” says stylist and owner Heather Caswell.

The Wardrobe is currently celebrating its 29th year in Downtown Davis
as a women’s fashion store and community leader. The store is known for its varied events including trunk shows, health related sponsorships and author’s talks.

This event is free and open to the public from 12 to 5 p.m.

March 3-7


Sympli’s Spring 2017 women’s fashion collection will be featured in a special trunk show Friday, March 3rd through Tuesday, March 7 at The Wardrobe. This first trunk show of the year was set by owner, Heather Caswell, because of the line’s “impeccably flattering and comfortable fit… perfect for Spring!”

The body-friendly, soft flowing silhouettes in this line will be revealed in 30 or more colors, and all garments are made in Canada from start to finish. Caswell is known for her strong alliance with U.S. and North American designers and manufacturers.

Designs shared during the trunk show will be available from size 2 to 22. Sympli’s popularity comes from the designers who literally, “shape each garment on multiple women (because) flattering fit is an evolution and we don’t cut corners.”

Refreshments and personal styling will be going on throughout the five-day event and there will be a gift with every Sympli purchase.








April 8

Spring women’s fashions sewn and dyed to order in San Francisco at the Cut Loose
factory will be featured during the Saturday, April 8 spring/summer trunk show event at The Wardrobe.

“Nineteen flattering spring color options in their famous easy-care fabrics and flattering
implied shape fit makes this an exciting show,” explains Heather Caswell, owner and
style coach at The Wardrobe.

Even the history of the Cut Loose San Francisco factory is interesting — the company started in the late 1970s as a street vendor of T-shirts and drawstring pants on Fisherman’s Wharf.  At the time, they were dying their own colors in a claw footed bath tub.  The line is “known for fun dressing in a relaxed style…clothes that are simple to launder and easy to pack, unpack and wear.”
