@love108: Here in Australia it is illegal to that. Clothing has to have a label including where it was made.
And that label is the reason I bought online direct from China because all the dresses I tried on in a salon where made in china with a few exceptions (some locally made dresses but those where extremely costly).
For me I couldn’t fathom spending that sort of money on dress (and dresses are expensive in Australia no $99 David’s bridal sales for us) especially givent hat they were made in China were labour costs are minimal. Especially since I was only going to wear it for max 8 hours.
But I agree it is all about the bride and what she wants to pay. This fact is also the reason why retailers are able to mark up dresses because people will pay for it. But the wedding dress industry isn’t the only one- we do it everyday if we buy designer/specific store or label products. This includes cosemtics, perfumes, clothes, furniture and household goods.
