DRESS & TIMELINE:
How long does production take?
All our pieces are custom made and production lead time will vary depending on the complexity of any customization and the availability of fabrics associated with the order. Production usually takes between 4 – 12 weeks for an existing style shown online but a rush order option at a surcharge is also available. For any pieces that are custom made from scratch (ie. from design to sourcing fabrics to production to alteration), please allow 3 – 6 months.
What is the process for a custom made dress if I am based in Hong Kong?
Your initial appointment will include an hour session with our designer to understand your style requirements, occasion, budget etc. and for you to try on our collection and be measured. Prior to production, we will send through a design brief for you to confirm all details are correct. Fitting sessions will take place after your dress arrives where we include one free alteration. Any changes required beyond that as well as changes that need to be made to the silhouette (that differs to the original agreed design), will be at an additional cost.
What is the process for a custom made dress if I am not based in Hong Kong?
We highly advise you to email us so we can understand and better facilitate what you’re looking for in a dress. Once you’ve decided on the style, color and details let us know so we can then create a design brief for you to confirm all details. A measurement form will also be sent your way where you’ll be providing us with your measurements. Our measurement guide can be found here. If you do have any uncertainties on how to measure, we can also go on a video call to guide.
What is the price range of your dresses?
All our pieces are custom made and begin from HKD 3,300 for a simple cocktail dress. A more complicated and embellished piece will begin from HKD 5,000.
Do you provide rental services?
Unfortunately, we do not offer rental services on any of our products.
Where are you located?
We have a showroom located at H314, Block B, PMQ, 35 Aberdeen Street, Central,, Hong Kong.

What can I expect from an appointment?
Your appointment will typically last one hour.
Once you arrive at your appointment, we will first understand the basics: the purpose of the dress (tea ceremony, evening banquet, first dance, cocktail party), what style and color you’re looking for, and when you’ll be needing it for. We will them guide you through our gown collection to select pieces for you to try on.
Is there any appointment / trial fee?
First appointments are free of charge and we do not limit to the number of pieces you can try on as we truly believe your experience should be memorable and fun!
