Usually those "personal designers" are supposed to be cheaper than the actual couture designer dresses!

While I haqven’t seen anything like this, could you describe it well enough to a seamstress to have her whip it up for you for like, $1,000? In white if that’s your wish?

Hmm.  If it only comes in ivory then maybe it was a silk dress?  If so, the price seems right.  The dress I ended up with was from a store that tells you everything about the designer, lets you take pictures, etc.  I STILL can’t find any evidence of my dress online.  I would suggest googling random terms like "dress silk sweetheart layered Swarovski" or some other combination of the descriptors you used.  You might get pucky!

I have heard of stores doing what you describe.  Hopefully someone local to the area may have some more info, like if the store is legit or not!  GL!

i would call the store with a sob story. tell them your mom said she will buy the dress for you but she has to see it first, or you want a picture so you can shouw your great aunt who is in the hospital and can’t make it to the wedding. If they can make up stories and lie, why shouldn’t you! Tell them how far away you are and how you are ready to buy the dress from them. And how you loved their store and how this dress is the one, you just NEED a picture. Who knows, some saleslady might cut you a break!
