Ava Clara, maybe? 

Edit: I Googled Ava Claire and got Ava Clara as a suggested search. So I did. When I clicked the link, it brought me to Google.com. Tried again, same. Typed in “avaclara.com” and was brought to “avaclarabridal.com”. Super weird.

Edit #2: No idea. At all. I’m probably the least helpful person, ever.

I couldn’t find anything by the dude who designed my dress, either. I called the shop, they told me the designer (Andrew Adela) and then told me that the dress doesn’t have a name or number, just a description. Well, tons of Googling later, I found out that 1) Andrew Adela designs bridesmaid dresses and 2) he doesn’t provide pictures of his dresses to prevent copying. I found my dress buried in a sea of unrelated Google Image results, listed, yes, as a bridesmaid dress. It was weird. But I got my dress and it’s solid and not flimsy or anything, so I know there’s nothing wrong with it. But I admit that it would have been nice to have some pictures to stare at while I was waiting for it to come in, since I only had two pictures of me in it.

@RHAM88:  I don’t buy it AT ALL. did you confront her about the casablanca dress in the other thread i posted? Apparently it was another “Ava Claire”, then it turned out it looks EXACTLY like a casablanca dress. I wouldn’t trust them. I would demand to know where i can contact this “designer label.”However what’s important is that you love your dress.

@RHAM88:  Am I being duped into paying way too much for a dress that shouldn’t be anywhere near that price?

Ultimately, you’re buying the dress and not the label, right? So you have to decide if what you paid for the dress is worth it to you.

I keep getting attack messages from my antivirus when I visit the Ava Clara bridal website. It may be that the entire site is fake but it also may be that a genuine business was hacked and now used as a proxy for malicious cookies
