Evening Gowns for Muslims

You are a Muslim and needed an evening gown to attend a Gala Dinner Event at Marina Bay Sands Singapore. But you could not find Evening Gowns that are elegant yet with long sleeves available in the market. What should you do?

We have been approached by many Muslim clients and finding elegant Evening Gowns that are suitable for them as Muslims is indeed a common problem. Out there in the market, most evening gowns does not come with sleeves cover up. Evening Gowns available off the rack are either sleeveless or a bustier design like this:

Back in Year 2011, Fiza approached us with the same difficulty of finding an Evening Gown for Muslims. She had spent few months shopping around town in Singapore to find the Gown but to no avail. Until she came to us, our in-store expert helped solved her problem and She wore this selected Evening Gown to the Gala Dinner.

Purchasing an Evening Gown Online

With the advent of technology in this era, online shopping had never been easier with just anything that you can name, all within your fingertips. Be cautious! Not everything that you can just shop online without looking at the actual product especially special occasion wear like an evening gown.

Cupido Gowns constantly has clients whom had shared with us their dismay in online shopping for their evening gowns. Most times, they get to shop at their convenience from home simply by browsing the online photos, reading the material specifications, providing their body measurements and made payment. Then the waiting time takes within 2 to 4 months before it was delivered to their home.

Although these group of clients were enjoying the convenience of shopping from home, when they received the package and tried on the evening gowns, they usually find it a disappointment. And so, they still have to visit our shop and pay another cost to get another evening gown.

Why a disappointment? Most online gowns shop in Singapore posted evening gown photos from famous designers by quoting that they can produce the same designer evening gown with probably just a 5% difference from the photo shown. And many times shoppers are not aware that this 5% is the great difference that will damage the entire outlook of an evening gown.

Cupido Gowns believe that no other person can make an evening gown that will turn out to be the same as the original designer. Unlike fashion apparels, whether an evening gown can pull off to be an elegant piece relies heavily on the grading of material used for an evening gown and the bead works quality. A slight disparity even in the grade of materials used will change the deemed 5% difference to become a total damage on the evening gown.

Furthermore, most shoppers are not expert in taking their own body measurements. Hence, when the ordered evening gown was received, it is common that the evening gown is either too large or too small to fit at all. And when the evening gown had to be sent for further alteration in Singapore, it will incur another heavy expense as alteration for formal wear here is extremely costly.

We still remember that back in year 2011, we have Rachel whom had ordered a size 10 evening gown from another online gown shop by merely looking at the photo only. She waited close to 4 months and when she received the package, the evening gown was a smaller than size 6. Rachel had then paid a good S$400 which she could not get a refund, neither can it be altered. Moreover, she had to pay an additional cost to get another piece of gown from us for her wedding.

Therefore, to avoid disappointment and a heavy burden on your pocket, it is good to shop with ready-on-the-rack evening gowns. However, make sure that these ready made evening gowns are using only top quality materials.

Choosing the Right Colour for your Evening Gown

As an extension of our earlier post of How to Choose an Evening Gown, we are going to talk about choosing the colour for your Evening Gown. Again, the first deciding factor will be whether you are hosting an event, such as you are going to be the Bride or you are just merely attending an event like a wedding.

When choosing your evening gown, dare to go for striking colours if you are the host of an event as striking colours will make you stand out from your guests. Colours like red, yellow, fuchsia, orange or peach are good colours to brighten yourself up. Cupido Gowns also call them “happy” colours to wear for a formal event. Some of our clients also find that wearing these evening gown colours will bring more confidence to themselves.

When you have determined the event that you are attending with the colours short-list, next check if these colours suit your skin tone. Bear in mind that each colour of an evening gown comes in different tones. For example, if you are short-listing a yellow evening gown, make sure the tone of the yellow is the right one for your skin colour. If you lean towards a darker skin tone, a deep yellow evening gown might not be suitable, yet it will further darkens your entire outlook. Nevertheless, this does not conclude that any yellow tone is not suitable for you. Try a soft yellow that will give you a more youthful look.
