  • Yes, I would go back!

I needed a show stopping look for my major exhibition. Consumed with the complexities of my art installation, I had no time to style myself before the show. All I knew is that I wished to wear Lanvin for my big debut. With this in mind, I showed up the day before my opening. I was styled by Phyllis, who was incredibly attentive and generous with her time throughout. She brought an astonishing array of dresses, gloves, booties, shoes and jewelry. In the end we found the perfect dress which we then built upon from head to toe. Phyllis was there for every size I needed, help with zippers and finding the right pieces from the collection to create a look just for me. She even had the dress tailored before my opening. The look was flawless. I received compliments all night with multiple demands to know, "who was I wearing??" I felt incredible. I highly recommend this store when you need something for the most special occasion. After this experience, I gained so much respect for the brand, which really stands apart for it's impeccable quality and visionary design. All this is to say, I will be back.
