We are back from NY in April, where we debuted the Fall 2012 collection. Many in the industry call it Spring 2013, but the dresses will arrive in stores late summer, so I’m not sure why anyone wants to rush
time even faster than it is already spinning!!! Anyway, right before market, we decide which gowns will be discontinued. We generally keep about 40-50 gowns in production at any given time, and since I design about 30 new dresses every year, that means something’s gotta give!
Sooo, the tough choices have been made, and the great news for you, is we are having a fabulous SAMPLE SALE at our Flagship salon May 18-19th!
There is an assortment of mainly bridal size 10’s and size 4’s to choose from, and you might just score a great deal on a one-of-a-kind that never went into production, or the dress you’ve been dreaming of!
Sample gowns are sold as-is, so you will probably need to have a tailor make some adjustments so everything is just-so, but with savings from 25% to 75% off, you’ll still be way ahead! If you are a last minute bride (and by our standards, that means your wedding is less than 4-5 months from now) you may now be realizing it takes months to order a wedding gown. A sample sale is the only way to purchase a Claire Pettibone gown “off the rack” so you summer brides could still be in luck!
If, by chance there is a discontinued gown that you love, but the sample won’t do, there are some cases
where we have limited fabric for a few lucky brides. In that case, the gown will be regular price, but if
you’ve been waiting to order, now is the time!
With many beautiful styles to choose from, come see if “the one” is here for you!

What is it about the end of the year, that inspires us to clean, edit, reflect? I find myself wanting to start the New Year with everything in its place, and so in addition to shopping for loved ones this month, I’m doing a major cleansing at home, and taking a moment to appreciate and enjoy all the lovely gifts I am so fortunate to have in my own life…and maybe make a little room for just one or two more!
We’re doing the same thing here at our office, and as I have just designed 20 new gowns for 2011, it’s time to discontinue some of our old favorites to make room for the new. I’ll be sharing some photos and memories over the next few weeks as we say goodbye.
For any brides-to-be that have been dreaming of one of our discontinued gowns, we will take orders on a first come first served basis, and once we run out of fabric, we won’t be able to produce any more!
So…drum-roll…here’s the list:
Petals in the Wind
If your gown is on this list, don’t panic, take a breath, call us, and we’ll do everything in our power to make it happen for you! FYI our Flagship Salon in Beverly Hills is having a ONE DAY SAMPLE SALE THIS SATURDAY, so run, and you just might get a super great deal on a gorgeous gown!
