    Beautiful Custom Dress

    I love my dress! I ordered a dress for my Tea Ceremony in Chicago. I loved the variety on the website and I especially loved how my dress turned out. The East Meets Dress team was easy to work with and very helpful. For such a reasonable cost, I was very impressed with the quality of my dress too. It was also very comfortable to wear throughout the hot summer day in Chicago.

    Love my Amelia dress

    As a Chinese American, I wanted my wedding dress to reflect my East meets West upbringing. I never grew up with red envelopes or even knew about the tea ceremony so a traditional qipao or qun kwa didn't seem appropriate. From the first time I heard about East Meets Dress, I was drawn to the Amelia dress. It's flowy, light, and comfortable and it incorporates the mandarin collar detail that I love.

    Working with EMD was easy. I took measurements at home with the help of my then-fiance. Although the first iteration of the dress wasn't perfect, we had great communication with EMD and I was able to send it back for round 2. The entire process from start to finish took less than 3 months and the final result was everything I had hoped for.

    For less than $500, where else can you get a custom-made dress that represents Asian American culture so well?

    Just the place to get traditional Chinese wedding clothing!

    Originally I was planning a trip to Hong Kong to purchase a qun kwa for my wedding, but wasn't able to fly due to COVID19. I found East Meets Dress and was nervous about the quality because I wasn't able to see the fabrics in person. I'm soo happy I ordered from them though! Even thought I didn't order a bespoke dress, they had me submit my measurements and made sure the size I ordered would fit me more accurately. My qun kwa came soon after and it's beautiful. The embroidery is intricate and the fabric is just as elegant. It doesn't feel cheap or tacky at all. Definitely would recommend!
