What makes high-quality formal wear?

Durability – Good designers expect their clothes to last. Would a great artist paint on tissue paper? Of course not, the painting would fall apart in no time. You can be sure your formal wear will stand the test of time and look great each time you wear it!

Comfort/Fit – You obviously want to look great, but not at the expense of comfort! Great formal wear is tailored and designed to look and feel great. You will feel good inside and out, comfortable, and looking fabulous!

Fabric – Fabrics are not created equal. The type of material is important as well as the quality of the material. Longer fibers tend to be softer and last longer than short fibers of the same material. High-quality formal wear uses high-quality fibers. You won’t have to be afraid to let loose on the dance floor or wear your amazing dress night after night!

Construction – High-quality fabric goes to waste if it is not properly constructed. The seams need to be strong, comfortable, and natural-looking. Certain areas need to be reinforced and tailored to compliment your shape and hold up to wear-and-tear. You can be sure your formal wear is made to last at Marlene’s Dress Shop.
