Quality of Service

I cannot say enough nice things about Julius and Mimi. The dress that I wanted to purchase was about 10,000. I was so upset thinking that I would not find a beautiful dress for the right price, until I stumbled upon Julius Bridal in Oceanside. I was looking at photographers and happen to just see his store because there are a few vendors in the same building and I was amazed, blown away! He was able to make me my own custom gown and I was hesitant bc I figured it would cost thousands making a custom gown but I was wrong! Not only did I receive personal attention, but got the gown of my dreams, even a $10,000 gown cannot provide, bc I was able to tweak and play around with the style to finally create my own gown and it was thousands less! Thank you Julius Bridal!!

Custom-made dresses at off-the-rack prices

The business was started in an apartment in Jackson Heights, Queens, New York in 2004. Since we lived in a small one-bedroom apartment, we tried to reclaim our closet space by selling off unused items. My wife’s wedding dress was one of those items. It was a simple floor length ball gown that we paid no more than $100 back in Hong Kong. We thought we could sell it on eBay for around $50. To our surprise, we sold the dress for $150!

Obviously, it caught our attention. Buying wedding gowns online was a new trend in the bridal industry, so we became interested in doing just that. We started to do some research and realized that it was difficult to find high quality wedding dresses at a reasonable price. The dresses were either over-priced or they were inferior in quality. We also saw that the high alteration cost after purchasing the wedding dress. So, we set out to start a bridal apparel business to sell custom-sized high-quality wedding dresses at reasonable prices.

We started to experience with several different production studios. We contacted several studios that generate the most eBay dress sales. We found that the top eBay dressmakers did not produce gowns that met our expectations. Through some tough trials and errors, we finally narrowed down to a couple of production studios in China that were able to produce good quality dresses that we could sell at fair prices.

We then purchased used dresses by big designers’ labels and studied their production techniques. We passed on the knowledge to our production teams. The end result is high-quality dresses at reasonable prices since we sell our own line directly to the public. At the beginning, we did mostly inspired versions of other designers’ styles. Recently, however, we moved toward designing our own styles.

Presently, we sell directly to our customers at our new store in Long Island NY as well as on our online store. We also act as the production house for other designers' labels located in the US.
