We have just released another 'Special Edition' Dress. What is a 'Special Edition' you ask?
Normally I am able to produce up to several dozen of a particular dress, but sometimes I find a fabric or trim in a smaller quantity. If I am not able to make more than 4 of a particular dress or design, I release it as a 'Special Edition' instead of including it in my seasonal collections. Once these 'Special Editions' are sold, they are gone for good. Sometimes I am able to reproduce the design in a different color or with a twist, but usually not.

It is our 'Queen Charlotte' Dress. It's a rich and elegant dress made with brocade, taffeta, lace, and all sorts of fancy trimmings!
Queen Charlotte was a German princess who married into the British Royal Family. Up until the 19th century, many Christmas traditions had not become popular in the English culture. Although Christmas Trees did not become popular until Queen Victoria's reign, Queen Charlotte is credited for bringing the very first Christmas Tree, a German tradition, into the royal family.
We thought the Queen Charlotte Dress was perfect for our 2012 Holiday Dress, and we hope you do too!
Also, the official release date for the Winter 2012 Collection is November 17th - right before the Thanksgiving Holiday! However, many of our new items are being quietly introduced ahead of time, so keep a lookout for new and exciting items!
