Simply, elegant & comfort

I was very pleased with the experience of working with Jan and the quality of the final product. Her house has a cozy frenchie feeling, very relaxing to get naked and Jan always offers her motherly care to calm new brides as they go through different dresses.
I tried on the dress and felt it was MY dress however had to shop around because you only get to do this once! I had to try on a few more to be sure. I went to David's Bridal, Anna's Bridal and Kleinfeld in Manhattan (NY) felt like I was at a bride factory. At Tres Fabu, you feel as if you're the only bride in the world that matters. I cannot say enough good things about her or the experience. Jan is knowledgeable and has an eye for elegance. The fact that she's so sweet is just a bonus!

She has a nice collection of dresses, which have their own unique styles from Spain, France and some vintage styles. Also she carries brands that you can't find easily and the collection she has makes it difficult to choose just one. Cost is quite reasonable, not the lowest in the area but she definitely offers high quality fabrics & lace . She is very honest with the original price and typically offers you significant % discounts.

my last advise I have is to use the tailor (Pauline) & dry cleaner that was recommended by her. They only know their fabrics and how to have especial care for them.

Phenomenal experience. Jan previously owned a large bridal salon in Portland. Since closing it, she sells gowns privately. I was so frustrated by my other shopping experiences, where I was met with pushy sales people, dresses that felt cheap and crowded stores. Jan helped me envision dresses I hadn't considered, made my Mom feel truly part of the experience and helped me afford a dress that would be well beyond my budget elsewhere.

I have mixed feelings about Tres Fabu. I found my beautiful dress, shoes and veil there, and my dress was a great deal- it looked much more expensive than what it was. But that's where the good stuff stops. The woman that helped me ordered my dress too short. Even after many conversations with her (before they went out of business), where I expressed my concern that the dress would be too short with the shoes that she helped me pick out, she still ordered the same length. Months later when it arrived (I guess I am one of the lucky ones), indeed, it was too short. Luckily I found a remarkable seamstress, Tatyana Bowman, who found satin to match my dress and totally re-worked it, even when other seamstresses told me that nothing could be done, and that I would have to wear flip-flops or ballet flats for my formal cathedral wedding. While Tres Fabu might be the devil, Tatyana was the angel that saved my wedding.

I got my dress from Tres Fabu. They were horrible! They didn't even bother telling me that they were going out of business. I came to pick up my dress on the day they told me when I first ordered it, and the only thing left in the store was a few empty racks. I had to call Spain and New York for 3 days in order to locate my dress and then pay for it all over again just to get it because I had no time to find another dress.

It took me two hours to find my dress. The girl that helped was awesome. She was really nice and very professional. I couldn't pay for the dress all at once and they gave me a choice of making payments. A couple weeks later I went there to get a purse and the owner was there. She was very rood. I have a two-year-old and he was running around the store. He wasn't touching anything or making a mess, but she yelled at him. She told me I have to keep my son somewhere where he can't move. What right does she have to tell me what to do with my son and where to keep him. She was a pretty grumpy lady. I will not refer anyone to go in there when she is there.

Excellent service! Before going to Tres Fabu, I had heard mixed feelings about their service...so my Mom and I decided to go see for ourselves. From day one, they were unbelieable! I tried on about twenty dresses and ended up ordering one to be made in NY. They treated me with respect and made my dress choosing the best experience ever!
I ordered my dress and it came about five months later (they told me six months). Since this was about six months before my wedding, they encouraged me to come and "visit" my dress as much as I wanted. And I did just that. I would visit it, bring friends in to try on dresses, and call up every so often to check in. Each time the girls were wonderful and eager to help. When the dress came I scheduled my fitting and alterations with Tres Fabu as well. AGAIN, EXCELLENT service thoughout. I would highly recommend this company to any bride looking to be SPOILED and treated like a PRINCESS.....They were unbelievable and awesome to work with.
If you are looking at reviews...please come in and see for yourself. Tres Fabu is amazing!!!

The minute I walked through the doors I was greeted with smiles and help when I needed it. Every dress I picked up and tried on didn't end up working but one of the ladies that helped me picked out a dress that I ended up wearing on my big day!! They called to remind me about payments, pick ups and just to check in! I bought the dress and even got in heirloomed with them :)

Tres Fabu (Jan Schumacher) is now operating out of her home but you can reach her via the number listed on her website. She has tons of GORGEOUS dresses at a fraction of the price due to a personal situation. Contact her...she got me into my dream dress for pennies on the dollar and met with me last minute when my other dress got damaged. Her passion for wedding dresses shines through and it's a treat to work with her.
