Dressmaker in LA

I am in love with a Monique Lhuillier dress that is way over my budget. I am looking for recommendations for a great dressmaker in the LA area that could copy the dress. Any help would be much appreciated!

I wonder if you wait for a sample sale? I think Monique usually has a sample sale in December. When are you getting married?

Disregard the previous recommendation as I just saw in her vendor review that she moved to N. Cal. :(

I made an appointment with Shin Bu Bridal in Koreatown but then found my dress the day before. The dresses in his window look absolutely amazing and very designer quality. I'm not sure how he is to work with but he was featured on Daily Candy. I think he's affordable too. Good luck! Meg

you are SOOOOO lucky bc i have the answer to your prayers. Shin Bu in Koreatown, located at 3872 W. 6th St., Los Angeles, CA 90020; 213 382-5480 is owned by a GREAT WONDERFUL AMAZING couple with the wife as the business partner and the husband as the designer. He used to design for Jenny Lee, yes THE Jenny Lee. I'm having my first fitting tomorrow, and my dress is going to be AMAZING. when you step into the store, u can just see the quality of the dresses - the material, the handywork - he does it all. And he will custom make your dress if you bring him a design to work off of. If you are concerned with the price, he'll even let you RENT it, and he'll use it as a sample, so you get it for about a 1/3 of the price for a custom made dress. HE IS AMAZING. I REALLY recommend that you check out his bridal salon, you'll know instantly what I'm talking about. Good luck!
