Sure sounds sketchy to me. I’d contact the Better Business Bureau or similar organization to ask/alert them to this practice.

EDIT: It isn’t so much that the dress was Made in China, it is a question of misrepresentation and whether or not the shop is being upfront with you on them making it themselves or, as you suggest, just buying a bunch of dresses elsewhere and marking up the price.

A lot of dresses from well known designers are made in China. Heck my Calvin Klein coat I’m wearing right now (which cost a fortune) was made in China.

That being said I think it would be best to post a photo of your dress as bees are quick at identifying the designer of any dress.

If you love the dress and think you paid a fair price, then I wouldn’t worry about it. I would tell people that you bought a custom made one of a kind gown and got a great deal.

Wow, that does have the potential to be sketchy….but like @Treejewel19: said, a lot of things are made in China.  Do you have a pic on hand?

I douuuuubt they designed it themselves…  but…  it may not be “super cheap” – a lot of well known designers have their dresses made in China, it could just be a perfectly good but no-name brand and they’d rather have you think its “special”  🙂     As long as you love it, thats what counts!

Alot of designer dresses are made in china and alot of their dresses are not online.  I have a tea length designer dress that was never even photographed for a catalog.  I even called the company to make sure, and yup, it was theirs just one they only do special order on. 

Maybe you can post a picture of it and another Bee will know it or be able to track it down, some of these ladies are google geniuses.

@johanna42: I’m very curious to see the dress. You can remove the photo on your photo upload page I’m pretty sure.

Most designer dresses are in fact made in China.  The big problem people have with ordering dresses from China online is that without a designer to monitor the quality of the dresses (in order to protect its own trademark), there can be no guarantees about the quality.  However, if you saw and tried on the dress before buying it, that’s not an issue.
