Dress Code: Formal

the_collective_boutique_formal_blog

Just last week, a customer told us of a Sydney girls school which took the great green initiative of insisting that its students wear vintage to their formal instead of buying a new dress.

Lots of girls come into TCB  looking for formal dresses, and walk out with gorgeous gowns by the likes of Vera Wang, Self Portrait, Karen Millen and Betsey Johnson, not to mention the glow of doing good for the environment.

These pre-loved garments cost a fraction of the price they would pay for buying a new dress, which no doubt pleases their bankers (whoops, I mean parents) as well.

With formal season upon us, we have so many lovelies in store in a variety of fabrics, colours and styles.
