How much does a Shanna Melville gown cost?
Prices start from £2000 depending on the fabric and style. It is useful to advise us of your budget so we can guide you on what fabrics to use.
How much time do I need to have a dress made?
Creating a beautiful individual dress is different from buying off the rack. A toile is required to ensure the perfect fit before proceeding with the dress. At least 6 months is required for a made to measure gown and extra time is needed for a bespoke gown depending on the style of dress. Dresses can be made to tighter deadlines depending on the time of year.
Do you take after hours appointments?
Appointments are available upon request on Wednesday or Thursday evenings.
Should I bring anything to prepare for my appointment?
Any references and inspiration you may have collected is always useful. If you have ideas of necklines, designs and details you may like we can help you find a dress right for you.
May I bring friends and family along?
We acknowledge that clients like to bring the people they care about and opinions they trust to their fittings. Too many people can cause confusion so it is best to bring along a small number of people.
Once I have decided on what design I would like, what happens next?
A 50% deposit is required to secure the order. Your measurements are taken and then your fitting is scheduled in the diary.
What payment methods do you take?
We accept cards, cheque, bank transfer or cash.
