I travelled from Sydney to Melbourne for the day so I could visit Ever Elegant and I was not disappointed. My daughter is getting married and I wanted something special to wear to the church service. Firstly the range of clothes for mother of the bride is incredible. The outfits are unique, beautiful fabrics and only 1 of every size, making them quite exclusive. After exploring the website, I emailed the store with my measurements and what I liked. When I arrived for my appointment, Marie had outfits out which I had asked about and also outfits which she thought would suit me. The service here was fantastic. Marie had a good eye with what suited me, she was attentive during my visit and nothing was too hard. She definitely went over and beyond with assisting me. I purchased a stunning Veni Infantino dress and matching fascinator. My son is getting married next year and I will definitely return to Ever Elegant again for this special occasion. Thank you Marie and Helene MD

After searching all over Sydney for a dress for my 84 year old mother for my daughters wedding I came across Ever Elegant, not only were their dresses beautiful I finally found an age appropriate dress with matching jacket for the Grandmother of the bride. Marie & Helena were so helpful from the moment I phoned with measurements & the most professional service I have ever experienced. I ordered the dress Tuesday and received it from Melbourne to Sydney Thursday morning. The dress was packaged beautifully and securely in a box. The quality of the fabric is beautiful. I am happy to say the dress fits my mother perfectly, she looks elegant and polished. I highly recommend Ever Elegant Mother of the Bride Boutique, not only do they provide for Mothers/Grandmothers of the Bride their beautiful dresses are for young ladies also who may be attending a wedding, Christening, or a day at the races. Ladies please don't be afraid to order from interstate or overseas I can assure, you can trust this Boutique the quality & service is very high. I am very grateful to have found Ever Elegant Mother of the Bride Boutique Helena Sydney Australia

I have bought both outfits for our children's wedding from Ever Elegant, started off by browsing, but quickly knew, THIS is the place I've been searching for. One designed by Zeila, the other was Veni Infantino. From style to service (especially from Maria & Helena) they would always be so welcoming and helpful. Helena has actually made my dress fit much better, all so effortlessly. I still have people coming to me when they're looking for an outfit, to ask where i got mine from. I don't hesitate to let them know! Thank you for helping me look like a swan rather than a ugly duckling!

I found the perfect outfit here and Helena made it stress free. I’m a larger person and was treated with disdain elsewhere but Helena was absolutely professional and completely present and available for me. She was able to show me a large range of beautiful outfits in my size and I was thrilled with the one I chose. I highly recommend Ever Elegant for the special occasion.

Helena was so cooperative when I phoned from Sydney to select a dress for my wedding. The one I chose was beautifully made and arrived within a few days by Express Post I was informed that I could exchange or get my money back if I didn’t like it. Fortunately I did!!! I rang Helena a second time and bought another beautiful dress which unfortunately wasn’t a perfect fit as the first one so sent it back by Express Post, and within 2 days my money was back in my account. That, I believe is the way to run a good business and automatically you give good feedback to others. I would highly recommend Ever Elegant and Helena to anyone looking for something stylish and beautiful to wear for any occasion. Margaret from Sydney

I was desperate to find a mother of the bride outfit- nothing in stores. I was given a link to Ever Elegant and liked what I saw. Rang them, so helpful over the phone- had the perfect outfit delivered within three days. So happy with outfit and Ever Elegant.

I attended to salon in April with the intention of buying an outfit for my son and his lovely fiancee's wedding later this year. The attention and honest feedback that I received from Helena and staff members was wonderful. I had all my needs catered to and all questions were answered. I decided on and payed for an elegant Lewis Henry silk outfit. Helena expertise in dressmaking suggested two minor alterations. The attention that I received when I collected my dress was amazing. I was not hurried or considered a 'done deal' and I enjoyed the interaction and professionalism shown by Helena and Catherine. Wonderful experience. I would recommend to all women wishing to look elegant for that special occasion to call into Ever Elegant Richmond.

Some 6 years ago I flew to Melbourne from WA for a concert, I had a day to find an outfit for my sons wedding the next week. Did my online research before leaving country WA and found Ever Elegant, the in store experience on the day was fantastic, Helene went out of her way to help me. I purchased two outfits and have never been happier. Since this first in store experience being top class, I check out the new arrivals every time an email arrives. I have purchased many outfits since, ordering via email. The service externally is as impeccable as in store. Thank you Helene & Jacqui for providing an exceptional choice of fabulous outfits. Lord help us all should you decide to retire.

Hi my name is Jacqui! I was beside myself trying to find just the right outfit for my son’s wedding. I googled and found Ever Elegant emailed Helena for a booking/fitting. Flew down from Sydney with my friend. The boutique is easy to get to we arrived and tried on the most beautiful dresses with Maree’s help. I could not find anything close to them in Sydney. I loved one dress it needed to be altered slightly for that perfect fit which Helena did very promptly. I went back in two weeks and the dress was perfect so comfortable and gorgeous. The whole experience was effortless Helena and Marie are so professional and helpful. They genuinely care about each of their customers. Thank you so much for your wonderful boutique!

We have been looking for a mother of the bride outfit for my mum for a LONG time now!! We appreciated the choices that were available at Ever Elegant. More than that, we want to thank you Maree and Helena for being so warm and welcoming. You were informative without being overly pushy. We appreciated your suggestions and the space you gave use to make our choice. We were visiting Melbourne anyway but I am certain we would have made the trip from interstate anyway!! Thank you again!!
24 Aug 2018
All the outfits are beautiful - and all handmade. My son is getting married and i was told this months ago. I started to look for the best outfit and found it - nothing came closer than an outfit frm Ever Elegant. I booked to go in w Helena last Friday and met Marie on Saturday who was wonderful and very helpful. I tried on the outfit w matching shoes, hat and bag. Fabulous!! I paid my deposit and was out on 30mins.
16 Aug 2018
Google led me to Ever Elegant, I flew from Brisbane to Melbourne to find a dress to wear to my son's wedding. Maree was amazing, she listened to my needs and helped me pick the dress that made me feel comfortable. She is an asset to Ever Elegant. Thank you for helping me through a very difficult decision.

Thank you to Maree and Helena for caring for me and fitting me with a lovely outfit for my daughters wedding. I was impressed with their attention to detail and care. Originally, Ever Elegant was discovered on line and then contact by email. When we arrived at the shop Maree was prepared for us and with Helena's attention I left fitted with a becoming outfit. I recommend "Ever Elegant" to any person looking for a special event outfit. Thank you Elizabeth

narisam from Port Hacking
I flew down from Sydney yesterday with a friend specifically to go to Ever Elegant Boutique. I originally found them on the net and emailed and spoke with Helena prior to my visit. I had picked a dress and coat combination online but decided that it would be best to visit the shop in person for a fitting. Helena was extremely helpful and accommodating and very prompt to respond to my enquiries. In store I was attended my Maree who was also so lovely and helpful and made the whole experience special. The quality of the garments and the attentiveness of the staff were both top notch and I couldn't recommend them highly enough. The boutique has moved to East Richmond and coming from Sydney this could not have been easier to get to. We flew down with Jetstar and caught the Skybus into Southern Cross Station from there it was a quick 3 stations on the Metro, a short walk up the path from the station to Church St where the boutique was a couple of shops along. Again I would highly recommend this boutique without hesitation.

In last two months I went few times to the Even Elegant -Mother of the Bride Boutique. I have been impressed with sales person Helen B who was friendly and professional. Yesterday I went to pick up my Veromia dress. If I could I would give a million rating stars. The Even Elegant boutique is the best shop. I would proudly recommend the boutique to all of my family and friends. Well done!!! Keep up an excellent work. Thank you. Mara from Narre Warren.

Best discovery of the year goes to Ever Elegant boutique. In a suburb I wouldn't normally shop in I was a little apprehensive walking in and with Groom To Be with me, wondering if I'd chosen the right place to look for my Wedding Day outfit. But those thoughts dissolved in the first 60 seconds of meeting Marie and exchanging a hello. I feel so blessed that I was guided to Ever Elegant. Marie you have been so wonderful to help me find the outfit that is "the one", you have an inner knowing as to what to suggest next that is spot on, I felt I had all the time in the world as I hummed and aahheed and you were so genuine to ensure that this experience was pleasant in every way. As an older bride to be I had been stressing about what I would wear. But I need not have worried as Ever Elegant was the place to come. As I paid my deposit on an outfit I had only vaguely imagined I instantly felt the knot in my stomach dissolve. The outfit I had chosen was not originally "the one" - Marie & Helena went to extraordinary lengths to see if my first choice could be here in time. As it turned out it was so close to my wedding date I chose not to put myself or Ever Elegant under that pressure. Instead I chose something else, and it is the perfect one for my wedding. Everything has been outstanding in excellence - quality, value, service, décor, ambience, time, beautiful people that have gone out of their way to ensure that my day is special. Thank you for putting the JOY into this very special shopping experience, and for making the Groom To Be feel just as welcome and comfortable in your boutique. Can not write enough glowing things of our experience. Thank you with our most sincere and heartfelt gratitude.

I went today and am thrilled to bits with my stunning outfit. Maree put me at ease straight away. She was friendly professional and very patient. There was no hard sell gping on. I will definitely be back and can't speak highly enough of my experience.
04 Feb 2018
As soon as we walked in we were greeted with a smile . They were so sincere to our needs and helpful all the time we were there . There opions were of not just wanted to make a sale but to make sure we got want we wanted and that we leave with exactly the dress we wanted and feel over the moon about the dress we brought .

Well done ladies see yous again.

From Country NSW: The staff were patient and gave excellent advice, whilst I was looking for MOB outfit. When requiring a little adjustment it was no problem at all. I was in Melbourne on Wednesday, the adjusted frock is in the mail Friday. I would recommend Ever Elegant for anyone looking for personalised service and a wide range of formal wear in one stop shop. Thank you Maree & Helena

A daunting experience finding the perfect dress - a big thank you to the ladies at Ever Elegant, in particular Maree - your advice and patience was greatly appreciated - mission accomplished!
28 Sep 2017
Maree and Helena provided excellent service. I was nervous going into the store as a larger sized lady looking for a dress to wear for a wedding. They made the experience easy and gave me a number of options. I had just come out of hospital and the ladies were helpful and understanding and down to earth. I bought two dresses with them and will definitely go back. Thanks so much for your help.
07 Sep 2017
I made a planned trip to Ever Elegant in August for my mother of the bride outfit ,checked out their designers on their website ,so I had a good idea what I liked. Maree & Helena were fantastic & so helpful. After trying on several outfits, I bought a beautiful John Charles dress & jacket which needed minor alterations, which Helena did and posted the outfit out to me a week later. What great service. Thank you Maree & Helena
22 Jun 2017
Helena at Ever Elegant was fabulous from the beginning to the end of my shopping experience at this wonderful store - I found just what I was looking for and my parcel was delivered in a very efficient timeframe. Thanks Helena.

The service was quick and sizing was precise. The outfit is amazing. I will be a beautiful Mother of the bride.

My son’s wedding is in London in September and I was worried I wouldn’t find anything suitable on the Gold Coast. Did some research and found “Ever Elegant’s” website which went into great detail of stocking plus sized outfits. I decided to fly to Melbourne for the weekend and to my absolute delight found the perfect lace dress and jacket and the outfit is very flattering. I had to have a couple of minor alternations done and received the dress by Express Post within a couple of days. A big thank you Helena for your help and guidance and I would highly recommend her boutique and expertise to any Mother of the Bride or Groom.

I am 55 and will be mother of the groom in a few week. I had purchased 5 other dresses and returned them all, as I felt they were either 'too young' or 'too matronly'. I spent a Sunday morning at Ever Elegant, and Marie was so helpful - even providing a strand of pearls to show me how the whole outfit would look. I found my perfect dress and will happily recommend the shop to my friends in the future.
26 Feb 2017
Friendly, efficient service. Ever Elegant have a returns policy, the sizes are European so you know they will fit. Many thanks Maree for the GREAT service.

As Grandmother of the Groom having a resort wedding in Bermuda later this year I wondered if I would be able to find just the sort of outfit I was looking for. After unsuccessful shopping around I was lucky that my Granddaughter discovered Ever Elegant on the Internet and we drove to Armadale from Geelong on a Sunday. Maree and Helena were so very helpful, warm and patient, not at all pushy but with helpful suggestions and I was thrilled to find just what I was looking for. There were a couple of minor alterations to be made and I then received the outfit by express mail within a few days. The cost of the outfit was below what I had been expecting to pay. I normally dislike shopping for clothes but this turned out to be a pleasant experience thanks to Maree and Helena.
24 May 2016
With my daughters wedding in November I wanted to find something special. After searching the internet to see what was available I found Ever Elegant stocked a wide range of designs that I really liked. The trip to Melbourne was well worth it and thanks to Helena I have the perfect dress for the occasion. Helena was able to do the necessary alterations and posted it out to me in just over a week.
12 May 2016
I highly recommend Ever Elegant in Armadale. The staff, Maree and Helena, we're so helpful nothing was too much trouble and they were so patient as I tried on many of the dresses in stock. A very wide range of styles, colours and sizes from which to choose. All in all a very pleasant experience.
04 May 2016
Searched Sydney and the internet high and low for an outfit for my daughter's wedding. I came across Ever Elegant and an outfit I hoped would suit. I rang and spoke to Helena and discussed the outfit I had seen on their web-site. After giving her my measurements she suggested what size I would be. All this took a mere 15 minutes. With outfit sized and despatched I waited with great trepidation on its arrival. It arrived 2 days after I spoke with Helena and couldn't wait to try it on. Tremendous sighs of relief after putting it on. Fitted like a glove. Naturally some small alterations had to be done and had I lived or even travelled to Melbourne to purchase my outfit I would have Helena do them but remember everything was done over the phone in 15 minutes!!!! I rang to thank Helena for her attentiveness during my over-the-phone purchase and advise her of how the outfit fitted. My exact words were "fitted beautifully and was as comfortable as wearing my PJ's". I know I have an outfit that I can wear all day and be absolutely comfortable in. Thanks again Helena, I won't hesitate to recommend you to anyone, anywhere who is looking for a special outfit. You're really only a phone call away.

Due to health issues and weight gain due to medication I was very much NOT wanting to go dress shopping And this is for my daughters Wedding in 3 weeks. I had previously seen Ever Elegant online and decided to drive the 3 hours to Melbourne. Nothing in my home town. VERY PLEASED that I did. Nothing was too much trouble for Maree (she was only one in the shop and busy) Not once did she make me feel anything but special. NOT once did she make me feel conscious about my size. Maree is wonderful!!! I would fully recommend Ever Elegant. Thank you for a pleasant shopping experience. Spent $500. Very pleased with what I got for the price. :) :)

Found 'Ever Elegant' online and was impressed. Our first shop and only boutique to visit!!!! It felt good as soon as we walked in the door! An amazing and extensive collection of impressive outfits. I love my outfit. I feel special and was made feel special with the lovely assistance and advice I received. Professional and sincere. This was truly a wonderful experience!!!! So, highly recommend! Maree, my assistant, was so very friendly and helpful. Helena, the owner, likewise. Experienced suggestions and nothing was too much bother. We could not have had a more pleasant an experience. Thank you Maree and Helena. :-)

I am so happy with the service I received from Helena and staff on my recent purchase of 2 outfits for my daughters wedding in February and my sons in April. I didn't plan to buy 2 outfits on my visit to Ever Elegant but the trip down to Melb was well worth it. Helena is so helpful and honest with her opinions and you can be sure you will leave with an outfit that is perfect for your shape and the occasion. Its so refreshing to receive customer service at such a high standard...very rare these days. Thank you Helena.

I was looking for an outfit to wear to my son's wedding and approached Ever Elegant with trepidation! I expected my outing to end in tears of frustration and a failed trip to Melbourne! But, Helena was fantastic and my first expedition to my first shop ended instead in happy tears! A perfect dress and jacket was found- slight alterations arranged and a promise to mail my garment soon. 8 days after shopping my outfit arrived by mail and fitted perfectly!

Would the shop on goggle booked my flight and had one day to buy Mother of the Groom outfit. I think I was the first person in the store when it opened to be greeted by the owner Helena and staff member Maree. What I had seen on line that I thought I was going to buy I didn't. I knew the minute I walked into the store I would be flying home that afternoon with something. Stunning clothes and staff so helpful. Being on my own I relied on the honestly of the staff to give me their thoughts on which was me and not me. After trying on many outfits, went for a tea break and came back and purchased my stunning silk dress and jacket, with Maree telling me it was the one for me and she called it the destination dress. Big thank you to Ever Elegant everyone commented at the wedding that my dress was stunning. Forget Sydney if you are looking for something totally different for a special occasion- Ever Elegant is the store to go, thank you ladies regards Narelle

My mother and I were both very impressed with the variety and quality of the outfits/dresses the store offers. The gorgeous outfit my mum had chosen, was beautifully altered by Helena. It was as though it was especially made for her! That's what a fabulous job Helena had done with the alterations, not to mention it was ready to be picked up within two days!! Now, how's that for service! Can't recommend 'Ever Elegant' enough! We will definitely return to this store in the future! Thank-you once again, from a very happy customer!

Having looked everywhere I could afford for an outfit for my sons wedding and feeling quite deflated, I came upon Ever Elegant on the internet. Just looking at their selection on line lifted my spirits! So off I headed (with friends for advice)and having decided I may need to increase the budget, was pleasantly surprised to find several dresses in my price range. Nothing was too much bother for the shop assistant (?Maree, sorry I was so exhausted I forgot to note your name) and she seemed to fully understand my description of what it was I was after, finding many possible outfits for me to try on. We finally narrowed it down to two, I went across the road for a coffee and a think, then came back with my decision made and walked out with a dress that ticked most of the boxes on my list. I would highly recommend all mothers of the bride/ groom to start their search at Ever Elegant and save themselves a lot of wasted time and effort.

I had great problems finding a mother of the bride outfit, I live in brisbane and am in a wheelchair. I rang ever elegant and spoke with a lady called Maree, now Maree has got above and beyond what I am sure many staff meme ers would she has found me an outfit, even got me material to match so I could make a pant suit which is what I wanted, if I cold put Maree on a peddlestool I would, Ever Elegant I hope all your staff are like Maree and if there is an award or some sort of thank you for customer service then please can you make sure Maree receives it, again thank you Maree from the bottom of my heart for making me feel elegant and comfortable on my daughters wedding day

I had to reshop for an outfit to wear to my sons upcoming wedding with about 6 weeks to go. This is an unpleasant and sometimes difficult task as I do not buy off the rack due to stature. I braced myself for some serious and extensive shopping and having found Ever Elegant online this was our first stop. Helena and her staff showed exceptional customer service and had at least a dozen items for me to try on, all of which fitted. The choice was narrowed down to 2 -3 items which I could easily have bought any of them and been happy. Having settled on a favourite, Helena stepped in with her experience and talent to alter this to fit me perfectly. The whole shopping experience took about and hour and everyone even made my husband and daughter feel very welcome and at ease. I picked up my dress in a week, talk about quick turn around. It now fits exactly how it should, as though it was made for me. I am extremely happy with the end product and cannot wait to confidently attend my sons wedding in a few weeks without ever thinking twice about how I look. I cannot recommend Ever Elegant highly enough. For all shapes and sizes and many styles to choose from.

I found Ever Elegant online and decided to not make any decision on my mother of the bride outfit until I had checked out what Ever Elegant had to offer, when I would be in Melbourne (I live in Sydney) on a planned trip I was making with my daughter - the bride to be. And boy how glad I did. With Helena's expertise she gave me about 8 outfits to try on. The first two were on the short list and I knew we would be walking out of the store that day with my outfit. The third outfit trumped them all and I was sold. There was just a small alteration to be made to make the fit perfect, which Helena had done and ready for me to pick up in time for my flight back to Sydney. I cannot be more thankful for all the friendly assistance and honesty in selecting, what I expected to be a daunting experience, but turned out to be such a pleasure. A thousand thanks Ever Elegant!

I was dreading shopping for a dress to wear for my daughter's wedding as usually I can never find anything that fits me and which I feel comfortable in. I went to Ever Elegant and after trying about 4 dresses I found my perfect one. I bought a silver Sonia Pena dress .I felt very elegant and full of confidence and had so many compliments on the day of the wedding. Thank you Helena. Shopping for a dress to wear to my daughter's wedding has never been so easy.
04 Apr 2014
Being a shorter, larger lady, buying anything "off the rack" was an impossible task. I'd tried every shop, becoming more depressed after each one and ending up in tears unable to find anything to wear to my son's wedding. Then I found Ever Elegant online and went one sunday 2 weeks before the wedding. Helena was amazing! She has hundreds of the most beautiful outfits......and she's a dressmaker and alters the outfit for you if needed. I bought a sensational dress, jacket and fascinator and wore it to my son's wedding last weekend. I looked and, more importantly, felt fantastic. I'd go back in a heartbeat. Thanks Helena.

Thank God for Ever Elegant. I finally found what I wanted and achieved the look I was after. After purchasing my outfit from Ever Elegant Helena was able to cutomize it for me and it looked fantastic. Many comments from guests and I felt like a million dollars. Also many thanks to Helena for the last minute Bridesmaide alteration. Great Job. Helena you are a gem in the industry......

I would like to recommend Helena at Ever Elegant to prospective clients. I recently flew to Melbourne to try on some outfits I had seen online. Helena was the epitome of patience, suggesting over 20 different outfits for my daughter's UK wedding in September. After 2 hours of vaccilation and indecision, I finally settled on a different outfit from the one I had originally chosen and am very grateful to Helena for her helpful suggestions and forbearance.

A unique boutique catering for mothers of the bride or groom. Stylish dresses & suits, modern up to date fashion for that very special day. No granny dresses here. Imports and local dresses. No pushy sales people either, Helena is helpful and courteous. Expert alterations can be done on site. I will be recommending all my friends.

marym47 from Yagoona
I was apprehensive to buy online, so I took the chance and travelled to Melbourne and discovered it was really worth the trip. Helena's customer service is excellent. Her advice and expertise are excellent. I tried on several outfits, some of my choice and some were Helena's suggestions. I purchased an outfit she recommended for me. It looks great on and is better than any outfit I could find in Sydney. My outfit needed alterations which Helena did for me and I received my outfit in the post 5 days later, excellent service. I am sure I will look nice for my daughters wedding in July. I have recommended Ever Elegant to all my friends and workmates. The quality and service is unbeatable.

I was a bit apprehensive to buy online without actually seeing the dress in real life. I am a fuller figure lady and want to look nice for my Daughters wedding in September. After spending a lot of time and energy looking around my local area without any luck I decided to take a chance. I live in NSW and unable to make a trip to Melbourne. I have never spent that sort of money on myself. Helena was so helpful with suggestions and descriptions. I received the dress and jacket in the mail yesterday and I am absolutely thrilled with fit and the lace fabric is beautiful. For me, it is worth paying for quality and service I have been given. I would recommend Ever Elegant-Mother of the Bride Boutique.

The best range of Mother of the Bride out fits, not cheap, but excellent quality. Helena, is brilliant. She is pleasant, not at all pushing, her comments are honest and constructive, she is a perfectionest, so if your outfit doesn't quite sit right, she will fix it so it sits perfectly. Highly recommend Ever Elegant for that special occasion. I never saw outfits as good as these ones. They also do alterations of wedding dresses etc.

I selected this business on the basis of the excellent reviews posted here. I wanted a jersey knit cocktail style dress made in a similar style to one I already have, with ten weeks to go until the event. They were very uncertain about taking on the job, explaining they were not dressmakers who could work without a pattern, and did not have the time to put into the job. I really just felt as though I was imposing on them from the time of my first phone call to make an appointment. I am sure this business has many happy customers, but just to provide useful feedback if you are searching for a dressmaker, be aware you will need a pattern. I rapidly found another dressmaker a suburb away who was happy to take on the job and will have it ready for fitting in four weeks.

Imports unique designs, personal service, Helena is easy to talk with and is prepared to listen to your requirements. Any alterations arn't a problem. Found a mother of the bride dress that wasn't dowdy or colourless.

Helen and her divine assistant were amazing.. I had my first fitting when I collected my wedding gown and was told by the youg girl that I needed to lose weight or add extra panels into my gown.. I was mortified and felt ugly.. There was no way I was booking my alterations there, even though time was against me.. I found Helena and from our very first phone conversation I knew I was in the right hands. I was assured that everything could be fixed and there was nothing to worry about.. And that's exactly what happened.. I explained to Helena my tumultuous experience collecting the dress and immediately Helena and her assistant proudly stated that the dress fit perfectly and only the hem needed lifting .. They were so lovely and comforting without being smothering and false .. Thank you Helena and your staff.. You turned my frown upside down!!!!

I went to Helena after reading excellent reviews about how helpful she was. I'd bought a cheap wedding dress from ebay and it was far too long. She completely re-shaped the train and shortened the whole dress. And she did it really quickly. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

I had almost resigned myself to making my own outfit for my daughter's wedding, but with less than two weeks to go, discovered Ever Elegant. Helena was more than helpful & altered my chosen outfit in 24hrs for me. What excellent service. I will most certainly recommend her to all my friends.

I purchased a bridesmaid's dress from the internet and when it arrived I needed to have it adjusted (hem taken up and the chiffon layer released from the side seams). I rang another dressmaker who got a good rating on WOMO and was dismayed to hear a phone quote on the hem alone of about $150 (more than the whole dress!). Helena was lovely on the phone and in person - understanding and good humoured - and not only completed the adjustment within 2 or 3 business days for half the phone quote of the other dressmaker, but was also honest about the alterations she thought didn't really need to be done (taking in the dress around the bust). I am extremely grateful to Helena for her expertise and service and will happily give her my business in the future.

I had a horrible experience with Raffael Chukka delivering my wedding dress 3 days before my wedding. The fit was questionable as to whether it was going to hold my bust in on the day! Doing a mad scramble ringing around dress alteration shops, I stumbled upon Helena, who kindly stayed open past the shop hours to offer her assistance, experience and exceptional customer service. This type of service and is missing from the wedding industry, and it was refreshing to see someone that has not lost the love for what she does. It was a stand out moment throughout the whole wedding planning process. What a wonderful experience to end with. (Besides the actual big day of course)

We are Stephanie and Ian from Heidelberg and patrons of Foreverdance Richmond and Hawthorn. We found Ever Elegant on the internet while we were considering a dressmaker to make a formal tango style dress for Stephanie to wear at a Cabaret Night event in June of this year. Helena's work was outstanding. She listened to our ideas on required style, gave sound advice on materials, and then set to work to design a really remarkable dress. After our tango performance there were many compliments from audience members on the night. Helena gave very close attention to details during the fitting process, and the dress was finished well before the occasion and well on budget. We highly recommend her work.

Helena made my wedding dress and I couldn't have been happier with it! I showed her a picture and said "That's what I want but I want you to change this, this and this" And I got EXACTLY what I wanted!! Everyone raved about how fabulous the dress looked and the best thing was, it was comfortable and it fitted me perfectly!! I even had her make me matching dilly bags for myself, bridesmaids and flowergirls from the fabric of my dress. Helena was wonderful to work with, easy going and very professional!! I would recommend her to anyone who's after some personalised, quality, good value service!! If you look at the older reviews, you'll see that I did come back for my wedding dress! And very glad that I did!!

I bought my wedding gown off the rack early this year. It was one size bigger than my real size so I took it to some dressmakers for a quote for alterations. Helena was one of them. Helena was the most patient dressmaker I dealt with. She asked me to put on the gown to see which bits needed alteration (which to my surprise some other dressmakers did not even bother to do). She took time to explain what she was going to alter and why she would do it that way. Helena also made some professional suggestions to make my gown look better than just okay. Strangely enough her quote was one of the best! I did not need to think again after I visited her. When I got it back, I was really happy with her workmanship. The gown went from looking like someone else's to one that fit me like a glove. At the time I was also looking for someone to make a red dress for my Chinese reception. Having had one stuffed up by another dressmaker there was not much time left at all. I approached Helena again. Helena agreed to make one on a very short notice. I showed her a picture of a dress I found online. It was a red satin dress covered with lace. The style is also a little uncommon with a Chinese twist in the collar. Helena gave me advice on fabric and styles etc. A few weeks later, a beautiful red dress was completed. The dress made me look slim and elegant. Like her work with my white gown, Helena took every step to make sure the perfect fitting. She also went great lengths by suggesting additions to details which I never thought of. These efforts meant more work for her but better outcome for me as a customer. I wore both dresses at my wedding in Canada in May this year and received so many compliments from my family and guests. I cannot be happier with Helena's work. I am impressed with Helena for her experience in dressmaking, attention to detail, customer services and very reasonable pricing. Through her work, one can tell that she has a passion for fashion. She is not just 'getting the work done', she is there to realise dreams by creating beautiful things. I highly recommend her business and will definitely go back to her for future tailoring and alteration needs.

I brought my wedding dress to Helena after reading reviews on WOMOW. Helena did such a wonderful job on the alterations. It was a strapless dress and fitted perfectly on the day! Helena is friendly and relaxed, and very experienced! Given the amount of work that needed to be done through all the boning and layers of the dress, the price was much better than I expected! Couldn't have been happier! Highly recommended!

I am a plus size lady and Helena Looked after me so well she helped me sort out a style that I liked and would look good on me. I had a beautiful dress and jacket made for my daughters wedding, she painted the silk for the dress and everything fitted beautifully. I had so many great complements on the day, I felt like a million dollars. I highly recomend this business

Helena was helpful and charming. She easy modified my wedding dress to fit and her prices are not over the top as at other dress makers tend to be. Not only was the job well done, she was also friendly and provided a comforting experience

The level of craftmanship is very high. Helena is able to manage basic alterations to high level dressmaking, eg, bridal wear. Always very keen to meet my deadlines and offers a great and swift service. It is a pleasure and wonderful resource to have this service available.
