I would be very suspicious of a store that doesn’t have tags in their dresses and also wont tell you the designers name. Even if their computer system was down, someone in that store would have atleast known the designer!

It’s pretty common for them to take out the labels of dresses in boutiques I think, so you won’t just go google it and get it somewhere else.  But if you ask they should tell you who the designer is.  I guess their computer was down but can you call back the next day and find out who it is?  I never got the whole “not taking pictures” thing.  It made me scared to go in when I first started shopping!  It makes no sense, of course you want to remember what it looks like ON YOU.  Just seems pointless and unreasonable to ask people not to take pictures.

As pointed out by another bee: it’s illegal for them to withhold the manufacturer from you. threaten to report them if they don’t comply with the law.

Any violation of the Textile Act regulations or the Care Labeling Rule is considered an unfair and deceptive act or practice under the FTC Act.



They can be fined up to $11,000 PER violation… that means $11,000 for each and every dress that they don’t have labelled properly with all the required information.

If you love it that much then it won’t matter where it came from. It’s totally lovely and the only reason I care who made it is so I can google it and ogle it some more!

They cut the labels out? I dont understand why someone would do that?? I mean you are paying quite a bit for a dress and cant even know the designer?? Seems odd to me

It’s Casablance 1951, I think.  Very pretty dress!


I went to a very well-known salon in La, and there were no tags in their dresses either.  I wouldn’t worry too much about that.  I knew the salon I went to had a very good reputation (people from all over the US tend to order dresses from them), so I purchased my dress anyways.  They told me the designer, once I committed to the dress.
