HOW TO CONSIGN:
Gowns are just like cars, they have a "style year," and they depreciate the moment they come out of the showroom where they were purchased.
We accept formals manufactured in 2021, 2022 and 2023.
Dress must be professionally dry cleaned.
No tears, stains or missing sequins.
** We NO longer consign Bridesmaid dresses or Bridal Gowns with long trains or heavy satin fabrics
We cannot Consign any dress that is older than 2 years. We DO not buy dresses.
