I went to the Vera Wang salon in NYC, and the saleslady told me that as long as the dress sells, they keep it in their collection.  That made a lot of sense to me, although I don’t know if all designers have this philosophy.


I think I tried that dress on also last year, and it is very pretty.  You may be able to find a used dress online.

I went into a store and found a Christina Wu Fall 2006 dress. I was also surprised like you. But apparently this is not abnormal. I didn’t buy it because it was too expensive.

It’s not abnormal at all. It’s not like the dress that you will have is from 2005, it’ll be made when you order it, since I’m guessing by the price it’s a made-to-order custom sized kinda thing. Lela Rose keeps dresses from past collections current, because the one I’m in love with is from 2007.

Even dresses that were not as popular can sometimes be re-cut for a fee.  Contact the designer or manufacturer directly and ask them if they still have the patterns and can re-cut it for you.  I found out about this when trying to locate a Jasmine ’07 dress that had been discontinued.
