Christian Cota Sample Sale at Ideeli Features One-of-a-Kind Items

For all the talk about online sample sales, it's rare to find a true sample sale online—one that doesn't simply redistribute overstock, but sells one-of-a-kind designer samples. Today's Christian Cota sample sale at Ideeli appears to be a true sample sale. Among the collection of separates and evening dresses (killer cocktail dresses, really), there are a handful of one-of-a-kind studio pieces. They're stunning—and Cota is certainly a hot designer, one to definitely watch.
