Below are a few of our favorite vendors! While online searches can be a useful tool, nothing can compare to seeing the beautiful designs in person, feeling the luxurious fabrications, touching the design details, and then viewing the fit on your body! That’s why a formalwear shopping experience can only be done in person! And why you should NEVER trust a formalwear buying experience to only an online retailer! Come in and let us show you all the beautiful pieces from these fabulous designers!
