I’m no help because I don’t know where mine was made πŸ™‚ It’s already in its preservation box! …It was an Alfred Angelo πŸ™‚

Some designers with US/Canada workrooms:

Many of the most popular labels on this site come from China. Davids Bridal, Alfred Angelo, Maggie Sottero, Allure, Justin Alexander…all are made in China, from what I’ve read.

I wonder if Vera’s Davids Bridal line comes from China? That would be interesting…

Don’t have my dress in my posession, but its a maggie – so I’m assuming China. 

Which makes me feel so stupid – why did I pay 2500 for a Maggie china dress, when I could have paid 500 to jasmine’s bridal shop for the SAME DRESS?

@mink:  Vera White, like most of the DB gowns, are made in China. It’s one of the ways they keep the cost of the gowns down.

@mandypop:  I did work there until I moved back to MD in January–it was one of my favorite jobs πŸ™

 

Regular Vera’s are made in NYC, but the DB line is made in China, as are most mainstream gowns. It’s one of the ways that DB is able to keep their overhead low because they don’t have to pay American wages and they are able to mass produce the lace and beading which on a regular Vera is all done by hand. Some of the DB gowns like the famous flange skirt have over a mile of continuous material in them and they are able to put it together in just a few hours. In a handmade gown it could take days.

 

FWIW–My and FI’s gowns were made in China. Normally I’d feel ripped off, but we got them at a fabulous discount thanks to the As-Is rack and my employee discount.
