"I purchased a dress for $249.00 from them. They kept telling me it is custom made. After they received my money, and after three weeks on not hearing from them, I emailed them. They then emailed me it is not custom made and I must buy another dress or I will lose my money. I purchased another dress, and after months of trying to receive the dress, in July 2012 I received it, a size smaller than I ordered. They refused to refund my money. Emails were sent back and forth from April 2012 until July 2102. The problem was never solved. I lost out on my money. On live chat, you are placed on hold and then disconnected. The quality of the dress sent is very poor, with the stitching showing. The zipped does not run free, even when lying on a flat surface."
Wrong colour did not fit,couldn't get my arm down the sleeve I returned it at my own expense, with the correct colour and sizes they asked for, I tracked the delivery, they refused to accept delivery, didn't answer email.I Sent pictures of proof of complaint, I lost my money. I have seen the same model's, same dresses that belong to top English designers, I should have checked with sights like yours before parting with my cash. Thank you, I hope this helps other people.
