I want a dress by a designer you carry but don’t have it in the store. Am I able to order that dress through you?

Yes, we can order for you any dresses carried by our designers.


Do you have samples available for sale?

We have couture samples available for sale in the store. Sizes and availability are limited and vary by designer. New samples are added every spring and fall.


Are sizes the same for all of your designers?

No. Each designer sizes they’re gowns differently. Please refer to the sizing charts on each designer’s page to guide you in choosing the right size for your measurements.
