Hello bees. I’m wondering if someone familiar with Pronovias can help me. The stores near me that carry Pronovias are telling me that they cannot order specific styles as samples from Pronovias. Is that true? The styles I like are not already in store. Thanks!!

Teanhoney: I’m afraid I don’t know for certain – the store I bought my dress from didn’t have a sample of the dress I was thinking of getting, and unlike other stores when I enquired about dresses they didn’t hold samples of for other designers, they didn’t mention that they could order it in for a fee. I could have ordered the dress through them, but they didn’t bring up the option of paying to bring in a sample from Pronovias!
Sorry! I hope you manage to find your answer!

In my case, i wanted a dress that the local flagship pronovias store did not stock a sample of. They told me that if they get the dress, i will have to take it whether i like it or not Or else i would lose the deposit. I do not know how much the deposit was and if it was worth risking it. I went to another store and found The sample dress at one of the largest flagship stores in europe. I do not know if the transport ticket was more expensive than the deposit i was to leave with them. so i think that it is because they do not want to get the dress. the reason the local pronovias store gave me was that the area i live in is too small to stock everything and they select what to stock and up to a certain price range, coz its like a franchise….every shop has its own owner and maybe buys sample dresses at its own risk…if they dont sell, they just get stuck with buying a sample dress, losing on the sample dress and not making any profit. That is what i think….but i could be totally wrong. They could not get a sample dress from another shop (even transferring stock between the flagship stores) voz they are all different owners.
