I have found the perfect dress. for me it is ‘the one’! it has everything i envisioned in my wedding dress, and more. it is called Carmina by the Designer Rosa Clara. I have looked through her dresses and they are beautiful.
There is one problem, how can i get it? can you order it from the designers? and if anyone knows how much it will be?? I would appreciate any help on finding this dress.

I feel your pain.
So I’m on my phone and her website isn’t working well. Is this part of the “Rosa Clara” collection? Not Two, or Soft, just Rosa Clara? I went through the same thing with her dresses. I found one months ago that I fell in love with, so I went on the site to see if anyone in my area carries it. I called a ton of stores. I had one store tell me they would be getting a sample, but I couldn’t wait any longer so I went with a different designer/dress.
My suggestion to you is email the customer service found on the rosa clara website. Tell them where you live and they will send a list of places. It took them about a week to answer when I did this. Then just call every store you’d be willing to travel to and ask them to notify you if the dress comes in. They may even be able to borrow the sample from the designer.
I don’t know what your budget is, but I believe the rosa clara line is around 4000+. The dress I wanted was 4500. The two and soft collections are a bit less I believe. Her dresses are GORGEOUS, but just impossible to find. I was bummed outo that I didn’t even get to try it on. Good luck!

Thanks for replying. I had guessed it was expensive but to find out the exact price and see if i could afford it. Yes its from the Rosa Clara collection, it’s a shame they are so expensive as im sure they would fly off the shelf if they were more affordable.
I have asked a store in london which they said they were stockists but if they have that exact dress or not i don’t know. I just hope i get a reply!
They need to find more stockist and stores in the UK!!!

@chibibex: Hi chibibex, I don’t know if you found your gown or if you decided to go on another direction.
As far as I know, Rosa Clara (and it’s different collections: Rosa Clara, TWO, Soft…) don’t hold more dresses other than the samples. I mean, they don’t have “stock”. A store request a sample so their brides can try it on, and then, they proceed to order the dress on the size and style (if it’s from the Rosa Clará line) the bride wants. That’s why you won’t see Rosa Clará wedding gowns in outlets or discounted. (But that’s why you can order to have a dress from a previous season if you find a store that still holds the sample).
The Rosa Clará collection will be around 3000 euros (2500 pounds). The “Two” collection is a little less expensive, around 1750 euros (1500 pounds).
Having said this, if you find a retailer, and if it doesn’t have the sample of that dress, they may be able to “borrow” one from another store. Ask.
Here is a list of all the retailers in the UK that have the Rosa Clará collection. Hope it helps:
