I love your dress! I’m very interested in knowing who the designer is, too!

Gotcha. Yeah, I was just confused because my top two choices were presented as private labels, and then I found out from another Bee that my second choice was actually a brand I had heard of, so I thought maybe my actual dress might also be an advertised dress. But it doesn’t seem like it is.
Thanks for responding! They definitely look similar, probably the closest I’ve seen! The main difference is in the neckline I’ve found – by default this dress is like a scoop/semi-sweetheart, and most dresses I’ve seen that look similar in the skirt have full on sweethearts, so I haven’t found anything that matches up that way.
Aww, thank you! 😀
Yeah, unfortunately @MayaBean
is correct, that FTC rule is so broad it’s almost pointless. As long as the retail store places a tag with their name on it, it meets the distribution chain requirement. Now I didn’t pay much attention to the tagging when trying on dresses, so I’m not sure how/if they met the requirements for the care instructions, country of origin and fiber content. I figure I’ll just wait and see that stuff whenever my dress arrives…
Thanks! Yeah it definitely is a mystery, isn’t it! I’m not sure I’ll ever be totally sure.
Thank you! Definitely similar designs, first I’ve seen where the neckline is close in style! The lace pattern is a little more trailing on the front and back of my dress though, and one thing about mine is that there’s a very obvious seam where the top and skirt meet that has to be covered by that belt/sash that comes with it, or it looks weird. This dress doesn’t appear to have that issue.
Aww, thanks! So my understanding is that the dress is a legit private salon exclusive, that is from an umbrella of a design house supposedly on par quality-wise with Pronovias… The closest I’ve seen online, is San Patrick dresses, which I know they carry from their website and checking authorized retailers. So I think that’s my best guess for now!
