I was right. Working with Phuong was an absolute pleasure, from the initial consult to the day I picked up my dress. She was always responsive, despite her extremely busy schedule. She listened to what I had to say about what I wanted to see. She made sure I was going to be happy with what I was getting and worked with me through a few major design changes I wanted to implement after she had already sketched the original dress. I never had to stress -- she made it so easy.
As a person, she is the biggest sweetheart ever, too. She is thoughtful and cares about the people she works with.
The final product? Perfection. I didn't want to take it off after putting it on during my final fitting! It was exactly what I had in mind. Really, I couldn't be any happier with the entire transaction, and I got what I wanted, 100%.
Thank you, Phuong, for my beautiful dress that I can't wait to wear, and for the experience as a whole!" - Claudine M. (WA, USA)
Just by the details in her gowns alone you can tell that she loves what she does and is great at it. Her warm/calm personality was SO much better to work with than the pushy girls that work in bridal shops. You can tell that Phuong really wants you to get the dress that is best for you. Loved every part of my experience with Dream Dresses by PMN! "-Morgan W. (WA, USA)
She is such a warm soul with an awe-inspiring talent. ALL of her work is gorgeous, and she invests so much time and detail into each piece. The passion radiates from her. She LOVES what she does and seeing that passion in action is a rare attribute to come by. I was excited each time I got to go and visit her for my fittings!
My dress was absolutely everything I wanted it to be. I still can't believe it. Her dresses are so unique and tailored to each woman in a way that speaks to them and what makes us each feel so beautiful - nothing is more special than that. Thank you for making me feel like a star!"- Vicky C. (WA, USA)
"Everything about my experience with Phuong was 5 stars. Like many brides I struggled to find any dress I liked in a reasonable price range . No matter where I looked I felt like I was making major compromises. My favorite designers were Galia Lahav, Inbal Dror and Pnina Tornai I couldn’t get either of them anywhere near my budget. I found Phuong on Etsy, and I am so glad I did. I loved her designs. I am lucky enough to live near her, and I was able to see her dresses in person before deciding what to order. I found her designs so unique and beautiful that I ended up ordering one of them (with a few tweaks) instead of asking her to copy another dress I had in mind. I loved her dresses because not only are they beautiful, but they are much lighter than most dresses I tried on in the stores, and the fabrics and beading seem much higher quality. My dress turned out perfectly. After receiving it she made sure it fit just right, was able to bustle, and was the correct length. She has extreme attention to detail and made sure the dress had everything I asked for. I can’t wait to wear it on my wedding day. Phuong is very good at communicating throughout the process. She always responded quickly to my emails, and she sent pictures of my dress as it was being made. I am also very glad I got the chance to meet her because she is so sweet. She really really cares about her work and that her clients are happy. Thank you Phuong!"-Sara P. (WA, USA)
"Thank you for my beautiful custom designed wedding dress phuong! It's exactly how I imagined it to look and you created it right on the dot. Phuong is very reliable, easy to communicate with, and ships the item in a very timely manner. This one beautiful piece that she created for me for the wedding will last a lifetime of memories and I am thankful I found you to make that great memory possible."- Jen T. (CA, USA)
"Not only was Phuong extremely sweet and helpful, but WOW! I'd seen her dresses in photos online, but nothing prepared me for how absolutely breath taking they were in person! I've "Pinterested" a lot of dresses, but I have yet to find one on there that I like as much as I liked all of her dresses. Beautiful and intricate designs, soft and high quality material and all the dresses I tried on we're very light and comfortable! It was also great to find a designer who's sample dresses run on the smaller side as I am very petite!
I will definitely recommend her to anyone wants to a beautiful wedding dress or an evening gown. Hands down, the best designer I've had the pleasure of working with. I will definitely be going back to her any time I need a dress for a special occasion!" - Aakanksha Gavali (WA, USA)
I am so in love with my wedding gown! I'm so happy Phuong put my dream dress into reality. I am a very particular person. I had a really hard time finding THE dress, but I'm glad I met Phuong and she helped me create my wedding dress! I am so happy I was able to tell her what I wanted and she made it happen plus more! The details and the flow of my gown were perfect! Everyone said my dress was amazing! Which it truly is! But to me, the dress is just a cherry on top... what I love most about this experience is meeting someone with such genuine & kind personality. I drove to Seattle to meet her in person... Phuong is the nicest woman you will ever meet. She made this experience so much more fun for me! I wish I had met her a lot sooner! Thank God for you Phuong! God bless your heart. - Lei Valdriz (Edmonton, Canada)
"Phuong is not only an amazing tailor but also an amazing person to work with. There are a lot of forces conspiring when you are managing and planning a big event and many things can not go as planned. That is why you need someone you completely trust and that is willing to go above and beyond for you trough your journey. I have bought three (3) amazing custom made dresses from Phuong and she is not only an artist with an amazing talent but also she makes sure your questions are answered and your requests seriously analyzed so she always provides you with options. The less expensive, the more detailed, the more couture. If you are shopping for someone to do your wedding dress or a gala dress, I can assure you that you will not find someone like Phuong easily. She is a treasure and definitely and ally to your dreams." - Maria Mendiola Fernandez (Chief International Officer and Senior Vice President - DC, USA)
I received my dress yesterday and I LOVE IT!!!!! It's just what I described to Phuong at Dream Dresses by PMN when we first started talking. The details on the dress are incredible! I need a few alterations done to the dress but nothing major. When I first started talking to her, I was a little nervous because I had gone to local designers to see if the dress I envision could be made. Many told me no or it would take too long or it would be too costly. After talking to Phuong, she quickly made me a sketch and included everything I had mentioned to her and showed her in pictures. She was also very patient with me and would respond to my messages rather quickly. I can honestly say I can't wait until my big day so I can put my gorgeous dream dress on!!! :) Thank you Dream Dresses by PMN!" - Cristal Quezada (UT, USA)
My dress turned out even more beautiful than I imagined! It fits perfectly, feels so light and cool and looks amazing. My dress turned out even more beautiful than I imagined! It fits perfectly, feels so light and cool and looks amazing. The lace detail, beading and layering of fabric looks so whimsical! Phuong is so talented and is always so positive and kind. I couldn't imagine myself walking down the aisle in anything else! I would recommend Dream Dresses to any bride - especially those who don't think they can afford a custom dress! I am beyond happy with the service and dress I received from Dream Dresses by PMN! - McKenzie Treviño (WA, USA)
"Thanks so much, my dress was perfect! You were so lovely and patient with me in coming up with my dress design in my very short time frame! Was everything I could have hoped for & fitted to perfection." - Krystal Coghlan (VIC, Australia)
"Phuong has been THE best experience throughout planning this wedding! She works within your budget, not upsetting you to a more expensive gown that you fall in love with but really can't afford. She is making my dream gown a reality, and at a price that cannot be beat. We literally sat down together with my Pinterest board and she had a sketch for me the very next day, using all my favorite elements of several gowns. I completely trust her expertise, advice and judgment and she has been a joy to work with so far. My gown is ready in 3 weeks - I just cannot wait to see what she's done. I'm sure it's going to be beyond my wildest dreams and fit perfectly! I highly recommend skipping all the gown shopping at boutiques and RUNNING straight to Phuong! UPDATE: 6/15/15 -- I just went to my first fitting and saw my gown for the first time. Yes, I cried like a baby it was so beautiful and every detail was perfect. In fact, it fit so well that I just took it home straight away, without any alterations necessary. Phuong is the kindest, sweetest person I've met. I wish she could come to the wedding to see her work on my wedding day!" - Judi P. (WA-USA)
