I was in search of a "dream" dress with a wedding 6.5 months away so you'll understand why this was even more stressful than the norm. Wedding dress shopping was almost overwhelming. 'All these pretty dresses, which one to choose? Which is truly me?'

But what made Selia different was I walked into a vision. She crafted and basically transformed it into my gown. It's hard to put into words how beautiful the dress makes me feel - it's detailed yet simple, delicate yet modern. I just love, love, love it!
And to have a designer actually work with you every step along the way just gives you a sense of confidence and comfort. The icing on the cake was our conversations. I've had some of my heartiest laughs with her during the process! THAT is what you'll experience with Selia!

There really is no comparison...

I visited a number of other bridal boutiques before visiting Selia Yang, and at every one there was nothing that felt right. Sales clerks were pushy, dresses were "typical" or "expected" and nothing was made for petites. Essentially, I'd have to buy a dress I only kind of liked (for a lot of money), only to have to have it basically redone by a tailor (for more money).

The experience with Selia is the complete opposite. She has a strong creative POV and vision, amazing quality, great attention to detail and a beautiful selection (though, she probably will know which one you'll pick from the moment you walk in the door). The personal nature of the whole experience was what put it over the top for me.

I absolutely love(d) my dress, and received so many complements!

I love Selia! She creates one of a kind pieces. Walking into her studio, you immediately feel comfortable. Her energy is so great. Her dresses are beautiful and they are hand-made just for you. I felt so comfortable and beautiful on my wedding day in her dress.

My experience with Selia and the stunning wedding gown I bought from her was one of the highlights of my wedding planning experience, and my gown was one of the highlights of my wedding! Her gowns are beautifully designed and she does not skimp on value or cut corners. What you are getting at Selia Yang's is sadly a dying art form - custom made, high quality workmanship designed by a woman who actually cares about her artistry and about your satisfaction. She is a joy to deal with, and, in the best way possible, she is a perfectionist (there was a slight bump where the zipper ended and she wouldn't let me have the dress until she had fixed the problem that I barely saw! Of course, the changes to fix the bump were no extra charge and still well in time for my wedding) RUN to Selia if you want a stunning gown, if you want amazing, personalized and genuine customer service, if you want to deal with someone who truly knows what she is doing and who will stop at nothing to make your dress perfect for your special day. And trust her. Other stores tell you crazy time frames they need to get your dress done. Selia will tell you something different. Don't freak or doubt her. She knows what she's doing and she does it amazingly well. Treat yourself and enjoy not only a unique and special gown, but the wonderful experience of working with Selia. This time before your wedding can be awfully nerve wracking. With Selia, you can remove one thing from the 'panic list' and just know it's going to be done right and it's going to be wonderful.

I absolutely adored my wedding dress and Selia was so nice to work with (she gave me a big hug the day I came to pick up my dress and we even took a photo together). The price was also reasonable compared to other dresses I was considering. I had visited a bunch of wedding dress shops before my appointment with Selia and had found a couple of dresses I really liked, but it was clear once Selia put me in the Anika with a floral sash that it was "the" dress. I brought photos of various dresses with me to my appointment, but Selia suggested I try on the Anika first. The sash was her idea as well; I never would have thought to try it on because it seemed too busy for my taste. But Selia has a knack for knowing what will look good on different body types and the whole look was just perfect for me.

Selia works differently than the large wedding dress shops in terms of timing. I bought my dress in January but didn't do any of my actual fittings (3 in total) until a few weeks before the wedding. She never even took my measurements; she was able to tailor it perfectly simply by having me try it on. I lost a little weight (pre-wedding stress) a few days before the wedding and she was worried that the back of the dress might not be perfectly snug so she suggested I tape the back of the dress to the corset with fashion tape and that worked perfectly the day of the wedding. The bustle did come undone after my dress got trampled during the Hora, but a couple of safety pins did the trick and it wasn't a big deal at all.

I got endless compliments on my dress. One guest told me it was the prettiest wedding dress she'd ever seen, and several people commented on its "wow" factor. I felt truly amazing in it and am so sad that I'll never get to wear it again! I'm hoping I can find a reason to buy one of Selia's non-bridal gowns in the future - her stuff is simply gorgeous.

I had Selia make my wedding gown for my feb 2013 wedding. She is a small NY designer that makes custom gowns for we clients. If you are looking for the Kleinfelds sort of experience she is not your girl. She is a more intimate personal designer than the mass produced kleinfelds or other NY bridal boutiques. I feel like her showrooms is the type of place New York brides shop. The gown she made my was absolutely gorgeous! She can tweak any gown she has in her store so that you have everything you want in a wedding gown. I would highly recommend her to make your wedding gown

Selia was great to work with. She takes her time to make every detail perfect. I went to 7 fittings, but I knew that the end product would be exactly what I wanted. I bought a sample dress which Selia tailored herself to fit me perfectly. I highly recommend Selia!

I am getting married in May 2013 and decided to start my wedding gown search this past July. After a few months of looking for the right dress, I came across several posts regarding Selia Yang and her beautiful, simple aesthetic. After visiting her web site and viewing her collection, I knew I was extremely lucky and had stumbled upon a very special designer. My first appointment confirmed this - all of the Selia Yang dresses in person are gorgeous - beautiful dresses with stunning fabrications. I also love that despite being fancy, Selia's dresses have a relaxed, elegant feel to them. I had a very difficult time choosing a dress out of several that I fell in love with. I had to have my mom and sister fly in from TX and Chicago to help me make a final decision - my sister cried a few times when she saw the dresses on me. Selia Yang herself was there for my appointments and handled my fittings . She is such a warm person who really made the experience unforgettable. My family was so impressed with Selia and how she knew what would look best on me. Her salon is also impeccable, very serene, and a true artist/designer's atelier. If you are in search for unique dresses that STUN (without being over the top) and one-on-one attention/pampering, you MUST visit Selia Yang. I cannot wait to walk down the aisle in my dress!

I first just want to say Selia was a pleasure to work with and my dream designer for her creativity and attention to detail. My dress was just what I wanted and I wish I could wear it again. I felt so special and beautiful on my big day and I have to thank Selia for her wonderful design.
I flew my sister out to New York to look for wedding dresses. We did it all from small boutiques, chain stores to warehouse discount dresses. I found Selia from another reviewer’s recommendation and scheduled an appointment. She was so sweet and kind from the start. She offered a private one on one consultation and it was incredible because I was sitting with the designer and not just a salesperson. She offered me an already made dress or the option to design a brand new one. I had an idea in my head not lace but texture and Selia ran downstairs and brought up a new fabric she was excited to experiment with for her future lines. I loved the new fabric and decided to go with design your own option. She assessed my figure/personality and had me try on three different styles of dresses that none of the other shops attempted to do. She nailed it and we found the right fit and fabric on the first visit.
My wedding was in August and I did not have my first fitting until end of June. I was a bit nervous about this but when I sent an email expressing concern Selia called me right away to explain. She is always bride minded and always has time to explain and help the bride through this process. You can always tell her number one priority is making you look beautiful on your big day.
In the end my dress was affordable, it fit perfectly, the fabric was so soft, and I had too many compliments to count. Because of Selia’s incredible attention to detail and amazing designs I had the best dress for me on my wedding. It honestly came with little to no stress which I couldn’t say for the rest of the experience.
I have and will continue to recommend Selia to future brides
