The Seminaked Party was organised by Desigual, which promised the first 100 that they would be dressed for free.

Participants began queuing in Turin late last night for the 8am opening, according to local reports.

And those who arrived as late as 3am missed out on the free clothing.

To soften the blow, the store was selling a number of items at half price this morning.

The Seminaked Party came to London in 2011. Despite organising the event for a summer month, shoppers were still left drenched after queuing from 11pm in the rain and cold for a 9am opening.

The first 100 through the door got a free top and bottoms, but everyone else who turned up in their underwear got treated to 50 per cent off Desigual’s summer collection.

In the England capital, the half-naked shoppers were serenaded by Australian band Set Sail and treated to goodie bags as they queued.
