Yes. In the USA, we require annual minimum quantity of 60~80pcs each collection, including sample orders and special orders, to offer 40~60miles territory protection according to the population density. In the UK, we require annual minimum purchase of 50~60pcs each collection, including sample orders and reorders of brides, to offer approximately 20~30miles territory protection according to the population density. For the customers beside USA and UK, pls contact us for details.

We only offer territory protection to those customers who meet our minimum requirement. If you can not meet our minimum, we can still sell dresses to you without a territory protection. But if any other potential customer in your area is interested to take the exclusivity of our lines, we will stop selling new gowns to you, but the styles you already stocked are still reorderable until they discontinue. If a customer could not meet the regulated quantity within the year, we would decide whether to give a grace period of 6months or not according to the sales volume in the past before we stop selling new styles from the following year after that. But the styles your already have in your store are still protected and reorderable until they discontinue.

Yes, we prefer standard orders, but we do offer small change service to help our customers increase sales. One dress is only allowed to make 1~2 small changes. We offer 10~30USD for the change. We can also include extra fabrics and laces with the order, so that our customers could make the changes by their own. Here is a list of changes we can make:

Customize the measurements;

Line the bodice front or fully lined;

Add buttons till end of the train;

Deepen or increase the neckline;

Shorten or lengthen the train if the skirt is made of pure chiffon, Mikado, crepe, satin,

Add spaghetti straps;

Others you may inquire before you order.

 

We don’t make any changes for the first store samples. As we don’t keep records for any changes that we make. So all changes are just done by one-and-for-all.

No change could be made for dresses made by embroidery, like S21655, LA010, B170, AZ18015. Because these styles are drawn by hand as a whole piece.
