It’s probably a knock off, but if it’s a great deal and seems to be good quality I’d go for it, who cares who drew the original picture?

I posted a blog here asking the ladies to help me find a look alike to the Sottero and Midgley “Adorae”.  I had tried the dress on and fell in lust with it but coudnt love it bc of the price.  One of the ladies told me about Davinci 50024 and I loved it.  I bought it and was STUNNING on my wedding day.  See?

Sorry post is so messy and choppy.  But to answer your question, my Davinci gown had tags and labels on it.

Another bee recently posted the link to an old but interesting thread about removing the tags:

Bridal shops who cut out tags

I would not buy from that shop.  It is actually illegal to take out the labels and hide the designer from the customer and you should report to BBB.  So you can tell them that next time.  Stores do this to jack up the price and force you to buy it from there because they think the internet doesn’t exist and you won’t be able to find the designer basically not knowing where else to go for the dress but to them.

Davinci dresses are not that expensive, and I think that’s some major price jacking.

If you’re sold on the dress I totally reccomend getting it from netbride.com, email them for a quote I’m sure the price won’t even be half of $750.  Don’t buy the sample buy a new one.  Their customer service is great.  I got my dress from them and I really can’t say anything but praise.

@Usuki:

I was going to mention that law, yes it is completely illegal and totally shady for a store to rip tags and refuse to give the customer the information. If you like the dress and its a good price I would say go for it, DaVinci is about the same as Davids for quality and pricing.

I agree with Atalanta that you should not buy from that shop. I just looked up the dress at bestbridalprices.com ( it’s a legit online shop) and they sell it for $351. The original price is listed as $507.

Sounds like the bridal salon is trying to sell the dress for much more than what it’s worth, and that’s probably the reason why the tag is removed.

She doesn’t even know that it’s actually a DaVinci dress. It doesn’t have tags and they told her it was their private label. Just because it looks like the Da Vinci dress doesn’t mean the shop is necessarily trying to scam her.

I totally agree that if she can get it new online for cheaper then she she go for it, but I think it’s kind of getting ahead of yourself to talk about contacting the BBB when you have so little information.

If OP really thinks that’s what’s going on I’d go into the shop with a picture of the da Vinci, tell them the price you can get it for new online and see if they’ll reduce the price even more. You may be able to get it for much less if they really are jacking it up.

@kala_way:

Withholding that information from the customers is illegal. If it is a privite lable it still has a name and product info.

Any buisness that will not tell you the info should be reported.

@Atalanta: What information are they withholding though? She asked who it’s by and they said it was their private label, by them. It’s probably a copy but ruffles and satin isn’t copyrighted.

@kala_way: Privite labels still have a brand…
