It looks like it says it right there in the photo – Magda Alessio by Moda Sposa? I Googled and it looks like an Italian brand. There’s not too much about it on any English-language sites.

ETA: Oh, I guess “moda sposa” just means bridal gown in Italian. I think the post above me found it, though.

Oh, it’s okay; I’ve started photo threads and forgot the photo multiple times. 🙂

I would ask the eBay seller just to be 100% sure. Most of them are excellent at getting back to potential bidders because they want to make an awesome sale!

From what I was able to tell, it’s a knock off of a Pnina Tornai design.

This is the exact dress I found and im in love with it. The only thing I can find on it is that it is a China made dress and I cant find it in any bridal web sites.

@Ember78: I think you are correct. It is very similar to this Pnina- no model name of number attached unfortunately.

 

 

But for the OP if this is the style you like, you can look for Pnina Tornai dresses.

Be aware that the original designer’s dresses are VERY expensive.

i fell in love with the Pnina $24k dress on “Say Yes to the Dress” so i “thought” about purchasing the gown – thankfully i only paid $80 to see what the knockoff place would make (i only had to pay $80 for deposit so i just lose that money)

pretty darn close, but you can tell it’s not as nice as the “original” $24k dress.  i guess i had too high of an expectation.

@FinallyGettingMarried, whether a knockoff looks similar to a designer dress or not depends on the seamstress’s abilities. Some look stunning (local professional seamstresses that you can find through a fabric store) and some don’t resemble the dress at all (typical of Chinese knockoff companies). Don’t assume that all copies are bad when that may not be true at all.
