ALL Prom Dress Customers are different – so, do not panic!
Firstly, we know that our prom dress customers are all completely different. Some of you may be absolutely giddy for prom and want a dress that it is completely ‘all singing, all dancing, out-of-this world, stand-out amazing!’ For others, we know that prom can be a total nightmare and you want something super simple, this is not a problem! We understand not everyone loves dresses and that can make it extra stressful for you when you start thinking about prom – but trust us, this does not have to be a concern for you.
Whichever type of prom girl you are, do not worry! Our team are specially trained and have years of experience helping prom customers find their perfect prom dress. Our store has every type of dress imaginable and we are confident that we will be able to help you.
All price points covered
Whether you are looking for a prom dress or evening dress for a black-tie event, we are confident that we will be able to help! We are proud to offer long dresses at all price points, starting from £55.
The Dress Studio recognises that everyone has different budgets for their dresses and we strive to accommodate this. Please, do not worry about visiting our store if you are concerned that everything may be out of your price range – we really do have a large selection and this will not be the case!
When should I start looking for a prom dress?
We always suggest to prom girls to start looking for their prom dresses as soon as possible. We suggest that from September is the best time to start looking for dresses. You may think that is too early but we started getting our prom collections from September. Prom dress shopping is very competitive and so once the new styles are gone, they are then fully sold out so we suggest you start the hunt early.
We do not sell the same dress to the same high school so, the sooner you come in and choose your dress the better as no one will then be able to have the same dress from our store!
Our busiest month is January and the store can become quite crowded at this time. In the months before Christmas, the shop is completely quiet and we have the same stock in that we would in January – so, we advise you to make the most of this peaceful time and look at prom dresses before Christmas.
Do I need to make an appointment?
At The Dress Studio, we have over 30 luxury, fitting rooms and so, you do not need to make an appointment.
During peak prom season (January), the busiest time to visit out store is between 12pm and 3.30pm. To enhance your shopping experience, we recommend on a Saturday that you arrive as early as possible.
What makes The Dress Studio so special?
The Dress Studio was created because we recognised how few options there were when searching for a ball dress, prom dress or evening gown. In the UK, there was nowhere to go to find a long dress! Boutiques, high-street shops and even department stores, would perhaps have one or two long dress options but that was it. You could not go into a shop and try several dresses to find the perfect style… that choice was not available. We also noticed that these dresses were not cheap, with them normally being a few hundred pounds and so, if you needed a long dress, you would perhaps have to pay a lot of money and not even love it, or you wouldn’t have even had the opportunity to try on lots of dresses to know you had found one that you absolutely loved!
The Dress Studio changed this! We created a beautiful store, filled with hundreds of dresses – prom dresses, pageant dresses, evening dresses, ball dress… every type of long dress imaginable! This meant, rather than having to visit store after store, trying on one dress here and there, you could simply drive to one location and know that you would not have to go anywhere else. We also chose to ensure that we would include a huge variety in price points and so, our long dresses start from £55.
Bringing you the very best dresses and designers….
The Dress Studio are dedicated to bringing you the very best selection of dresses. Every year, our team travel the world to preview the evening wear and prom dress collections from the leading designers, to ensure that we are continuing to offer the very best styles in our superstore.
We spend days & hours watching countless fashion shows from many designers and if we don’t think the dresses are perfect enough for our customers, they don’t make the cut into our store! We are approved stockists of Sherri Hill, Jovani, JVN, Mac Duggal , Forever Unique, Tarik Ediz, Terani Couture and more.
Aside from international designers, we also consider it important to support British designers and businesses. We are proud stockists of British brands including Honor Gold and Pia Michi.
How it works when you make your special visit The Dress Studio
When you arrive at our store, you will be greeted by a friendly member of our team, who will explain all about the store layout, different dresses, styles and sizes. We can answer any initial questions that you may have and then, the fun begins!
We are happy to give you your own space as you look round our beautiful store, or we can aid your dress selection and pick ideas for you. For anything that catches your eye, you simply take it off the rail and someone from our team will come to take it off you straight away. If it is for a prom, we will double check that no one else has selected the same style from your school. We then whisk the dress to our deluxe fitting rooms and create an area especially for you, with any dresses that you select! This means that when you have finished browsing, all of the styles that you have liked will be ready & waiting for you to try on.
If after trying you have not found the perfect style, our team can look for further suggestions based on what you have liked & preferred!
Is there anything I need to bring with me when I am prom dress shopping?
There is nothing that you need to bring but we really do advise to bring a pair of high heels with you to try on with the dresses to give you a more realistic view of what the dress is going to look like on the day of your prom. It will also help to see if you need any alterations to the dress length.
Who can I bring with me when I am looking for a prom dress?
You are welcome to bring friends & family with you but we do suggest to try and limit the amount of people. Sometimes, too many opinions make it difficult to focus on yourself and how you feel in a dress! Plus, at peak times, it can get very busy in the shop and there will be limited space at the changing rooms. We do advise to bring someone with you as it always helps to get a second opinion! If you are under 18 we do ask that you bring a parent/guardian with you when trying on the dresses.
Do you order in dresses?
The great news with The Dress Studio is that the dresses that you see are the ones that you purchase. This means that there is no waiting for your dress and, if you have left it a bit last-minute, it is not a problem! At The Dress Studio we prefer to have the dresses here in stock ready for you to try on and ready for you to take home straight away!
Do you do payment plans?
Yes, we offer payment plans! We ask for an initial deposit on the dress and then you can pay the rest of the balance at a later time. All we request is that a payment is made every 28 days. We keep the dress in the store until it is fully paid for.
How will I know what style is right for me?
At the store, we have hundreds of different styles and colours so we advise for you to try all different dresses on until you have found the perfect one for you.
We have an excellent customer service team in the store to help you find the right dress. It may take longer than you anticipate to choose the perfect one but do not worry, we are exceptionally patient and will always try our best to make sure you leave the store with a dress in hand!
Should I take my makeup off?
We would appreciate it if when you come to the store you are not wearing any makeup or fake tan. The dresses are very expensive and we would hate for them to get stained with any marks!
I don’t want anyone to know what prom dress I have. Is this a problem?
This is not a problem at all. We keep a record of every prom dress that we sell and so, we will not sell the same dress to the same school.
We also will not tell anyone what prom dress you have chosen, we keep this top secret!
