Custom making ballroom dresses in China?

I know where Lewis Center is as I live in Columbus, but I am surprised that neither my studio, nor my shoe supplier has referenced this place as I was just looking for my first ballroom gown and could have easily driven up to discuss design, etc. You will have to let me know how you like your garments.

They say that it's always dark under the lamp. Mine is a pair of mens latin pants, which may be quite different from dresses.
 
True, but if this place does good work, then we dancers in Columbus would have been directed there, I'd think, even though pants are different from dresses.

But, I am only familiar with my studio and perhaps other studios in the area patronize this designer.

I am looking forward to hearing how they look!

Or it could be they have "exclusive" deals with different people that they recommend or there was some perceived slight on the part of one or the other. There's a lot of reasons a business might not suggest another business that have nothing to do with the quality of work or service.
 
Can anyone elaborate on the need for a double layer of material for the bodysuit? Wouldn't there be a layer for the body suit, underdress and overdress? That alone seems like a lot of layers. Do y'all add another layer to the bodysuit on top of all that? What about latin dresses that don't have an underdress?
Yes I think that it is enough layers - it depends on the design a bit. I have just had a ballroom and latin dress made by rainbow shiu and I am very happy - all her dresses have body suits and bra cups (which are essential) and I get the floats detachable because of New Vogue style dancing.

I am a dressmaker myself and I think her quality is excellent -the fabric is not hte most expensive but for 10% of the price of a custom made (the only size that will fit me) dress in Australia I am a happy repeat customer.

Remeber people choose hteir own design - and I agree that does make some of the dresses hideous - but you cant blame the maker for that !

I received my completed pair of Latin Pants from this vender, a week sooner than her promised delivery. I am highly satisfied with this product. The fit is perfect and the craftmanship is superb. From now on, I will use this vender for my future costume need.

Custom dresses

I found a dress company I have ordered from them, very nice, very reasonable. They will also custom make any design if you send a picture.

Don't know too many details, but from what I've heard locally in Hong Kong --
Given the option, you want to source the fabric OUTSIDE of China, to get a good high quality fabric, then get it put together in China for best results.

However I was doing this through uneven interpretation, as I speak only English, my friend is English/Cantonese with some Mandarin, and the person we were talking to was all Mandarin....
 
A friend of mine just bought tails in china for $250. I was impressed with the quality but they are definitely what you pay for..... perfect for silver, gold, and maybe pre-champ at collegiate competitions.
