Found a wedding dress but I can't find the designer. Can someone help?
Posted: Apr 24, 2010 12:11 PM

I found a great wedding dress on a website that sells them for cheap and from China. I don't want to order a dress I've never tried on! But I can't seem to figure out what dress they are making a reproduction of! I'm hoping someone might know who the actual designer is. I'm desperate even if the original is not identical to this one I want to try on something very close to the one on the web before I even begin thinking about ordering this one!
The dress is classified as Mermaid, v-neck, Empire waist with lace. I appreciate any help!

found the dress on helenebridal.com
I don't think this is a reproduction of another dress, simply one of the stores designers. I just sent a request asking what kind of fabric it was & if there are any sister locations here in the States. You can always find fabric similar to this dress & take it to a seamstress or tailor who would love to make the dress for you. That's kind of what I'm doing. I bought a dress at a store but the dress needs a lot of work so instead of paying an arm & a leg to have it fixed I took it to my tailor who is from Korea. I'll let you know what I get back from them, if anything. GL.

Hello,
I don't know if you need this information anymore, but my guess is it's a Maggie Sottero dress. The model looks like the one they use. If not her, then a sister company Sottero and Midgley. I loooved both company's dresses. They are notorious for the great fit because if the lace up corset structure of the bodice. Have fun!

I agree with PP... it looks like either Maggie Sottero or Sottero Midgely. Check out this one: http://www.maggiesottero.com/dress.aspx?style=J1242

It looks like a similar silhouette. It's not the same dress but you could at least get an idea of fit.

I agree with PPs, it's definitely a Maggie. It has the exact same background as this one: http://www.maggiesottero.com/dress.aspx?style=J1195LU

I did a search on their website and couldn't find it... it may be from an older collection. Maybe if you emailed them the picture someone could help you?

I think it's Maggie Sottero style, they have many lace designs...maybe you can not find the exactly design from their website, as sometime designer will make a little change according to different body shape, tone, etc...

You may also like this design, also from Maggie Sottero :-)
