Recently I have had many reports from extremley upset girls who haven’t had a good experience with ordering their dream high school formal dresses online coming from overseas.
Issues have been with their dresses not arriving in time before their ball regardless of ordering 3 to 4 months earlier and being guaranteed they might arrive in time. These delays may have been due to Chinese New Year with many businesses closing down for one or two weeks over this celebration period. Nonetheless they might have known this when they took the order but have not divulged the information.
Many reports have been criticising the poor expertise with girls reporting their ball gowns arriving with pulls in the fabric, severely puckered seams and even holes and stains in the fabric.
More alarmingly I’m hearing of Ball gowns arriving not looking anything like the photograph of what they believed they were ordering. It would appear many of those companies are using pictures of other designers gowns leading you to believe this is their design and the actual dress you are ordering. However , they are then trying to make a similar dress in similar fabric.
If you’re going to order online from overseas;
ask for references from prior shoppers
ask for photos of their work Not images of the ball dresses they’re going to try to make.
permit time for delivery
have a fallback plan
permit time for changes in case the gown does not fit correctly
take the photo of the dress you are wanting to order online to a local credible dressmaker, or one of the Perth ball gown shops who provide a individual design service and get prices – compare the prices, convenience, guarantees and craftsmanship
ordering from a business you know somebody has used and dress you have already seen
ask what guarantees they offer
ask what their return policy is
