I do know that they take a substancial time off to celbrate, but I have no idea about a whole month.  They may just want the sale by the end of the year for whaetever fiscal stuff they do.

I’m pretty sure that’s true. I have a friend who worked in the fashion industry and she said the factories in China basically shut down for all of February. She spent a lot of time in January scrambling to get things done before the holiday.

It’s true. It’s the one time they get a vacation.

I think it’s 3 weeks, but it’s generally true. Chinese people all get the same holidays every year, a week in October, a week in May, and 3 weeks for Chinese new year, probably all of the seamstresses will be going to their tiny towns in the countryside to see their families. 🙁 

 

That said, you SHOULD be able to get your dresses in time if you order them in January…? Don’t quote me on that, though, since every place takes a different amount of time

@giru618:  Why the sad face? Isn’t spending time with friends and family a good thing?

I would think thats true.  I work in engineering with some plants in China, and it is VERY difficult to get anything done in that month.  Even if they don’t do a full shutdown most people will take vacation.

It’s Chinese New Year.  When I ordered my dress, the salon told me to not even count February as a month because they almost never get dresses out – and this was through a salon, not Jamines or Dressily Me that make the dresses to order.

I worked for a formal wear store. It is true. Ready to wear designers rush to have inventory in January so they have something to sell in Febuary- it is possible to do with prom gowns, not so much with wedding gowns that are made to order. If your dress isn’t does before Febuary or the order isn’t placed, expect a month added to your delivery time.

@Hyperventilate:  Oh that was sympathy for the bride to be! ABSOLUTELY spending time with friends and family is a good thing! 

Forgive my misplaced frowny face! >_<

@giru618:  I think the context was pretty obvious in your comment  🙂

@rcorral:  No kidding. Everyone goes on and on about how financially driven the country is, but they get more vacation than I do by quite a margin. (Even counting federal holidays!)
