I love this Pnina Tornai gown,
it is just gorgeous, however I want it made in burgandy and not champagne, and I have a dress budget of around $400…….
Has anyone else had a replica made of this gown? I would love to see pictures if possible and also stories on your experiences including which dressmaker you used and how much they charged. I am in Australia.

Im now thinking I may source an original quinceanera gown instead in burgundy, they shapes are similar and the dresses are cheaper for the originals. The only worry is whether I can get one in Melbourne Australia?

A replica comapany I am really considering , recommended by bee USAandKSA, is Shades of Pale. They are now on facebook and I have been emailing the spokesperson Amalia and have had very good responses. Their replicas are beautiful, some of the best I have seen. The dress u have the picture of is on their facebook site and they show a copy of one they did, looks almost exact. Hopes this helps! 😀

That gown was used to create a gown that is for sale at a very special bridal store that sells samples from Kleinfeld’s. On the 2nd page, I posted the email address of the manager, so you can try to get in touch with her for some info.
Regardless, the store has real Pnina dresses (samples, cancelled orders) and they sell them for $400-$500. I saw them with my own eyes. I know it’s too good to be true, but check out the thread I posted about the shop:
The dress you posted was used as a jumping off point (I believe) for the dress with the red flowers on it (see the thread).
Again, the manager’s email address is on the 2nd page of the thread. She’s happy to ship.

well, a long time later update…… I ended up having a local dressmaker make my dress with the pnina gown as inspiration but several differences, not the least the colour. I love the final dress though I had several stresses with the dressmaker as she left everything way too late and made some pretty serious mistakes on the final dress. She made it too long over the crinoline, it had straps that didnt fit and as she didnt finish my dress untill the night before the wedding there was no time for a final fitting EEEKKKK
I do love it though, and I felt like a princess in it which i guess is the idea 🙂
