“Look for the woman in the dress. If there is no woman, there is no dress.” – Coco Chanel… No dress for the Prom yet?

Do the words ‘Prom’ or ‘Leaver’s Ball’ create a certain sense of dread? Is it because you still haven’t found the perfect dress and that all important date is quickly catching up on you? Do you break out into cold sweats every time your friend’s mention their “Empire line, baby pink, simple but elegant” gown, knowing that you are still ‘dress-less’? If so, I’m guessing you are reading this blog nodding your head after failing, yet again, to find a dress online?

So whilst you’re ticket has been bought, your transportation has been hired and you’ve even been ‘eyeing-up’ a gorgeous pair of Kurt Geiger heels, THE most important component is still missing. You may have avoided the shops in a bid to put off the difficult decision; or maybe you have traipsed up and down Oxford Street, agonised over the endless choice on the internet and finally submitted and visited your mum’s ‘Dress shop’ (in a last failed bid to find something ‘special’). Whether your dress hunting has been overzealous, or somewhat non-existent, the issue remains unsolved.

Furthermore, whilst it may seem as if you are the only one in the history of the ‘Prom’ to leave ‘The Dress’ until the last minute, in reality there are many other girls with the same predicament. Strangely enough, I’m sure if we all fretted about our exams as much as we worry about how we will look on ‘Prom night’, we’d all be A* students. Yet revising to the best of our ability should be our only concern when leaving school. The Prom is considered tp be a means of celebration, it was not invented to hinder these important days leading up to the BIG exams. Don’t let this be your excuse for you not focussing hard! On the other hand, at Zeleb, we know understand the importance of finding the right dress and thus wish to alleviate any of your unnecessary stress.

At Zeleb we hear many horror stories concerning young ladies, who buy their dresses online, from untrustworthy and illegitimate websites. They have been left waiting, until their special day, for their purchase to arrive, when eventually it is never delivered. Whilst purchasing anything offline can be risky, Zeleb has a long standing international reputation when it comes to delivering, on time and satisfactory gowns. Of course this method of buying is only applicable if you have just over two weeks before the important day. Standard dress sizes will be dispatched to you within this time and we can guarantee that the perfect dress will be yours once those two weeks have passed. Although, if you are fortunate enough to pick a dress available in your size, in Zeleb’s showroom, we can offer a next day delivery service (please enquire within for more information on what is available).

An alternative to buying online is visiting Zeleb in our London based showroom and taking a dress away with you on the day. Again this does depend on the availability of your chosen design, in your size, but we do have a wide range of styles and sizes for you to choose from. Whilst shopping online is convenient and allows you to research countless brands within the comfort of your own home, trying on a dress before you make the decision is the ultimate test as to whether it is the right one for you – I’m sure you’ve heard similar advice from your parents – they are, with this one anyway, right!

So, whilst it may have taken you 3 months to pluck up the courage and begin your search, 5 minutes to read this blog, it will only take you 2 minutes to book an appointment with Zeleb’s London showroom and at once stop worrying. We have experienced assistants in store who are willing to offer honest and constructive opinions, as well as help in finding the right dress for you. You may have put off dress shopping until now, but at this point, you really have ‘procrastinated’ for too long, avoid further disappointment by popping by or looking online at our website now. We look forward to seeing you all soon!
