So, here’s my story: I went dress shopping at the beginning of December to a shop about 3 hours from me, because I had my heart set on a GORGEOUS Maggie gown, and put it on and, let me just say–not for me. I ended up walking out of that same shop though, putting a deposit down on a Mori Lee gown, that I liked–not loved, but liked. The other night, I was looking for pictures of the dress online, and came across a website that says, that particular gown was discontinued by the designer on September 29, 2010!! It’s not even on the Mori Lee website!! I know that you can’t believe everything that you read on the internet, and considering I made this revelation at 10PM last night, I sent an e-mail to the bridal shop where I made the deposit…I didn’t have a chance to follow up with them today, and they still haven’t gotten back to me. But, is there like a grace period if the gown really was discontinued in September? Has anyone ever heard of this before? I’m def. going to call them first thing tomorrow morning–

hmm…I don’t know but would it be possible for you to purchase the sample you tried on if it is discontinued and your not able to order it?

I was told before that shops get discontinued lists in advance of production stopping. The dress is then still sold for x amount of time. It apparently helps the shops decide what to put in the sale etc. Maybe they mean it was put on the list but not actually discontinued/ production stopped yet. Hope this helps.

Mine was discontinued on October 15th, I tried it on November 5th and THEN found out it was going away! So I called around to locate it, no such luck, but one shop called Maggie Sottero and they told them that there were 4 left and in what sizes/colors. I think when they stop production they really stop and just sell off what’s left.
I’d call around, try to find a place that will contact your designer, and try the place you tried on the dress. My store sold me the Maggie dress at half price since I’d only be able to buy the sample!
