How to order a wedding gown from China (that isn't a trainwreck)

How to order a wedding gown from China (that isn't a trainwreck)

So I'm a gown designer-manufacturer. I'll share that disclaimer right up front, but this fact only serves to explain how I know what I'm about to tell you. I offer two services, on two ends of a spectrum. On one end, the way that's done locally, with a ton of fittings, a mockup dress, and an appropriate luxury price point. On the other end... a budget-friendly option made at our factories overseas. If I can do it, you can, too!  Right?  Well...Wrong, I'm sorry to tell you, because what happens if YOU order from them is not the same as when...

Bridal Extravaganza!  Winter Wrap-Up

Our gallery of fantastic is on Facebook, but here are some sneak peeks! We debuted a handful of new styles with more bling and soft florals.  Heard great reaction on our new look.  I credit it to the fancy sign hubs made.  Schnazzy! I can only ever take partial credit for how awesome these ladies look on runway.  They woke up gorgeous.  But then The Fairest One got ahold of them, and that magic sure didn't hurt either.   See something you love?  Drop me a line about a visit!

A Tale of Two Brands:  The Answers to your Curiosity

After a great weekend at Extravaganza (more on that soon!), we realized that our peers were wondering what brought about our new vision through Renegade.  I wanted to lay it all out, because it was a HUGE pivot for us, and not as simple as one lone reason.
