ball dress shops perth

Are you an online only ball dress shop in Perth?

Envious Fashions serves both online and in store customers. If you are located in Perth, you can visit our shop at 377 Fitzgerald Street, North Perth to view our formal dresses. If you are not located in Perth, you can order online at our website and we will post the dress out to you.

Do I need to make an appointment to come see the ball dresses?

No. You can visit our shop anytime during business hours; Monday to Friday from 10.00am – 5.00pm.

Do you open on the weekends; can I make an appointment for a viewing on the weekend?

Sorry, we are not. We no longer accept appointments for weekend viewings due to too many no show and last minute cancellations.

Do you ship Australia wide?

Yes we do!

How long will it take for my dress to arrive if I order online?

We process and dispatch your order within 48 hours and use Australia Post to ship. For regular post, it will take between 2-3 business days if you are located in Perth. For orders sent within Australia it will approximately take 3-5 business days to arrive. We provide a tracking number on all orders so you can keep track of where your parcel is. We also offer express shipping if you need your dress urgently.

 What size ball dresses do you stock?

Currently, our in stock ball dresses range we have sizes 6-12 available in some styles. We also have a pre-order range of evening dresses and gowns that accommodate plus sizes.

Do you have a ball dress registrar to make sure another person will not be wearing the same dress as me?

If you purchase a formal dress from our in stock formal and evening gowns range, you are guaranteed no one else will have the same dress as you as these dresses are available exclusively to Envious Fashions. Furthermore, there is only one available in each style so once you buy the dress, it will remain exclusively and unique to you.

Can I hire your ball dresses?

Sorry, currently we do not offer hire services for our evening and formal dresses.

What is your returns policy?

Due to the nature of our ball dresses, we do not accept returns or exchanges if you change your mind or made a mistake in choosing a size or style. If you are ordering online, we understand the issues with sizing so we are here to offer as much help as you need about sizing and fit. Just drop us a line via email or give us a call and we can help you further.

Are all the dresses listed on your website available for immediate purchase?

Unfortunately, not all our formal dresses are available on hand, but rather pre-order. This means that we do not have the stock on hand at our store and order in for you from our showroom in Los Angeles.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes, Envious Fashions ships all over the world. Shipping prices are quoted on our website when you hit checkout. If your country is not listed please contact us for international shipping cost.

If you have any other questions which we did not answer here, please email us here and our customer service will be happy to assist.

PROM DRESSES FABRIC BASICS: CHIFFON

Formal, prom and ball dresses come in a range of different designs and fabrics with some styles being more suited to certain materials. With the variety of fabrics it can make prom and ball dress shopping confusing.

Chiffon is a popular fabric type widely used for evening dresses, formal gowns, bridal gowns and bridesmaids dresses for it’s delicate look and feel, giving off an elegant, soft, floaty and feminine look to the dress. Chiffon evening dresses are very elegant, delicate and beautiful for any formal occasion, making it a real formal wear gem.

Chiffon is a light and sheer fabric so often used as an overlay on top of a satin or sateen material for formal dresses. There are 2 types of chiffon material (1) nylon (polyester) chiffon and (2) silk chiffon.

(1) Nylon chiffon is the cheaper of the two chiffon materials and is made from a synthetic material such as polyester.

(2) Silk chiffon is the premium chiffon type and obviously, costs more due to the overall higher quality and durability of the fabric.

How to hand wash chiffon formal dresses:

Be extra careful if your chiffon formal dress has moderate to heavy embellishments such as beads, sequins, rhinestones, appliques or other delicate detailing.

  • Fill a large laundry basis/sink or bathtub with cold water. NB: Ensure that the water is cold and not warm as warm water can damage the delicate chiffon fibers. Also, the sink or basin should be large enough to fit your evening dress comfortably.
  • Add a small amount of mild laundry detergent and stir to mix in with the water until well combined.
  • Submerge the chiffon formal dress in the water and soap and gently stir to dampen the entire dress to loosen any dirt.
  • Let the chiffon dress sit and soak for 20-30 minutes.
  • If you have any stains remaining after this time, add a small amount of mild liquid detergent to the stain and rub very gently over the area with your finger or a soft sponge. Then allow to sit for a further 15 minutes.
  • Drain the soapy water and then refill with cold clean water. Gently stir the chiffon evening dress to remove any residual soap and repeat process until water is clear and dress is clear of any soap residue.

Remember:

  • Don’t be alarmed if your chiffon dress bleeds dye the first time you wash your dress.
  • Embellishments can get caught and tangled with the delicate chiffon material during handwash so it is best to not stir the dress around too vigorously or too much.
  • Long or chipped fingernails can get caught on the chiffon material and snag, so take extra care when washing. You can wear gloves to prevent this from happening.
  • Chiffon is very sheer, light and delicate so take care with the material to avoid any tears, shrinkage to the dress. Do not scrub or wring the chiffon dress.

Drying chiffon formal dresses:

The best way to dry chiffon formal dresses is to let it air dry naturally. Some tips with drying your chiffon dress;

  • Do not dry chiffon dresses with a hair dryer as the harsh heat will damage the delicate fibers of the material.
  • Do not wring your chiffon dress! This will deform the chiffon fibers and the embellishments may get tangled and catch on the material.
  • Ensure all the zips are zipped up so it doesn’t get caught on the dress or on any embellishments.
  • Air dry the dress in a shaded area out of direct sunlight to prevent fabric colour fading.
  • If possible, allow your chiffon dress to lay flat to dry to prevent the water weight stretch and pull the dress.

BUYERS BEWARE! CHECK SCAM PROM/FORMAL WEBSITES

Formal dresses for school balls and proms can be expensive which is why shopping online for discounted and “cheap” formal dresses is usually a good idea but unfortunately there are also fake and counterfeit formal dresses websites that spoil the online shopping experience for shoppers. There are plenty of horror stories of girls finding their dream prom dress online, order it and when their dress arrives (in some cases, it doesn’t arrive at all!) it is a complete mess. The dress received is nothing like what the actual dress that was shown on the website. Furthermore, there is no way to return the dress or get a refund!

These fake websites often claim they sell DESIGNER formal dresses, prom gowns, bridesmaid dresses and wedding gowns at 80% off retail price. They display stunning and beautiful shots of the dresses on their websites and the prices are only a fraction of what the RRP is. How good is that! It just sounds too good to be true, and in actuality, it is. These websites do a fantastic job at luring customers in to buy with the attractive design and layout of their websites, stolen dress shots from the actual brand/designer and too good to be true prices. These fake formal dresses usually are made in China with exceptionally bad craftsmanship.

The deep discounts are a huge bait to get people to make a purchase but don’t be fooled. The people behind these websites know the prices are almost irresistible and take full advantage by advertising site-wide of all the special prices, discounts and savings you get by purchasing a dress from their company. Trying to save some money isn’t worth getting scammed by these counterfeit websites!

In short, our best piece of advice for buyers looking to buy online is enter the URL of the website you are intending to purchase off at http://www.scamadviser.com

This is a very helpful website that provides information on the website and also provides an analysis of whether the website is deemed a risk website that has either been reported as a scam website.

Here we run an example of our website www.enviousfashions.com.au

We ran a scan on another website which many buyers have questioned the authenticity of the website and also many online reviews that this website have left many buyers disappointed and angry.
