I come to you AGAIN for help… Did you get your dress from an authorized retailer of the specific brand of dress?
Would anyone have any idea of how I could check that my Enzoani dress is authentic?
My dilemma is that I went to this shop listed on the Enzoani site.. only I didn’t read the little detail that said that some shops are authorized for enzoani blue, versus, love, versus the ‘couture’ brand. I didn’t know there was a difference!
Anyway, I went to the shop and ordered the dress. And so far, all was good in my world 🙂
That was until I contacted Enzoani directly about a question about their sizing chart and they told me the shop I got it from was not an authorized retailer for the type of dress I bought (it was one of their ‘Enzoani’ couture ones)!
They told me (enzoani) that they then don’t know where they got the dress form and it could be counterfit!
I don’t know how to address this with the shop as I’m worried they’ll hate me and give me terrible service because they’ll be offended.
They’ve been in business for 30 years so I can’t believe they’d sell counterfit dresses.. but at the same time, when you spend so much money, you also want to be sure…
I think they have enough connections that they could’ve bought it from another shop, but now I have this niggling worry…
Would anyone have any thoughts/advice?
Thanks so much!

@MrsWright: I didn’t check if it was “authorized” but it was on the designer’s website… If the business was listed on the site, I’m sure it’s fine. Maybe discuss it with the store, ask “out of curiosity” how their buyer works, who their supplier is, etc.
I know with electronics, you wanna go to a place that’s authorized, otherwise the warranty is void. But I dunno what the benefit is of getting a dress from an authorized place? I dunno, I was very lax about my wedding dress and just wanted to find one that was the designer I wanted, that fit well and looked good on me. If I paid $500 for a fake dress, it still looked damn good on me and it fooled me!

@ChuckNorris: Thanks for the reply (love your username btw, hahahha). I felt the same as you… I wasn’t really worried when Enzoani told me it wasn’t authorized. I was like, so what, I don’t care where it’s from. But they scared me by saying ” well, if it’s not authorized, it could be counter fit.” Like you, if I did find out it was but it looked damned good, I’d still want it.. but then I guess I just wouldn’t want to pay the designer price to be fooled..
It’s an awkward situation bc I already had some trouble with the shop bc they spooked me last week about the dress size they order risking it being too small! So after that drama was over, that’s when I foudn this out..
So the situation is a bit shaky at the moment which is why I’m so hesitant to ask them directly… I don’t want them to hate me or be offended and the fitting/experience with them turn out to be a nightmare!
