Join us for our end of year SAMPLE SALE!


What type of gowns are available in your sample sale?

We will be selling approximately 50 gowns from our collection that are no longer available from the designer, or that we have decided to discontinue from our collection. These are sample gowns, so that means that they

are NOT in new condition. If you buy a sample gown, expect that there may be minor wear and tear, hem dust or other small imperfections that result from the gown being in a bridal boutique. We will provide info. on reputable dry cleaning options in Toronto.

 What sizes are available?

Most of our gowns are stocked in a size 8, 10 or in some cases a 12. We find that many of our collections run very true to street size (so – if you take a size 10 in street clothes, you will likely take a size 10 in one of our gowns). The good news is that if you are a size 10, you will be able to fit into most samples in our sale.

Do you offer plus sizes?

While we can order up to size 28 for most of our regular collections, stock is limited for samples. If you are a size 14+, there will likely be very limited to nil options for sample gowns, and it likely won’t be worth your time to come in.

If you are smaller than a size 10, please know that for almost all our styles, our recommended seamstresses are your best friend! We advise that a dress can usually be altered down up to 3 sizes, so if a sample is a size 10, you can likely alter it down to a size 4/6 with some modifications.

What sort of savings are you offering?

All sample gowns will be sold at 40-75% off their regular list prices. 13% HST is applicable on top of all purchases, and alterations are not included.

Can I try on other gowns besides the samples on sale?

During the sample sale, you may only try on gowns marked as samples. To try on the rest of our collection, we encourage you to book another appointment on a different date.

What dates is the Sample Sale running?

The sample sale is one day ONLY! December 15, 2016 from 4-8pm

Okay, so how do we make an appointment?

No Appointment Necessary. Please RSVP to the event just to let us know you will coming. We will be operating first come basis. If you prefer to have an appointment please book for different date through our website.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept Visa, Mastercard and cash. Cheques are accepted but the gown will be held in storage for you until the cheque clears. Sorry, we do not accept debit cards. ALL SALES ON SAMPLES ARE FINAL, SOLD AS IS, AND NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES ALLOWED.

The Truvelle Trunk Show is Fast Approaching!

gabby-bayona-wedding-vancouver-coverWedding dress season has officially begun…which means Trunk Shows! We love this time of year because we are given the opportunity to meet our beautiful brides and help them find their perfect wedding dress!

We are super excited to be hosting our Truvelle Trunk Show on November 18th to 20th. Vancouver based designer, Gaby Bayona, will be here to showcase her new 2017 collection (named after the surrounding streets of her previous studio in Gastown, Vancouver). Gaby’s designs can be described as ‘a bridal line for the confident, unconventional and modern.’ Best known for her flowy, natural waist chiffon gowns, highlighted with lace, rose-gold sequins, and oversized bows. Her gowns portray a feeling of whimsical romance.

Growing up working at her mother’s bridal shop, she always dreams of one day being a designer herself. She attended a local fashion school all the while working at her mother’s bridal store, she began designing graduation dresses and soon progressed into designing her own bridal gowns. Finally she decided to drop out of school and pursue her design dream full time, and what a success that has been! Launching her first Truvelle collection in 2013, she has quickly grown her company from a storefront in Gastown to having suppliers all over the world, and has just launched her new 2017 collection. Truvelle is a proud Canadian based designer, producing and curating all designs in house!

If you are interested in attending the Truvelle Trunk Show from November 18th to 20th, please contact Sash & Bustle by email or telephone to book your appointment today! Can’t wait to see you soon!

Andrea & Eric’s Wedding Day Sneak Peeks

Andrea and Eric have finally tied the knot and we couldn’t be more excited for these high school sweeties. Being co-owner of Sash & Bustle Andrea’s wedding has been highly anticipated in the shop and amongst our brides over the past several months. So, naturally we had to share a sneak peek of their wedding photos right away. The day was captured by the talented Hugh Whitaker who’s energy and unique eye will always be appreciated!

Andrea had the honour of being the first bride to walk down the aisle in this amazing Carol Hannah structural ballgown. Twirling all day long through the Distillery District, she couldn’t have found a more perfect gown to suit her personality. Even more exciting, Sash & Bustle’s ‘Senara’ sample gown just arrived in the shop and now other brides can fall in love with it just like Andrea did! To top off her bridal look Andrea chose to blingify herself with a customized Revel cape! This unique piece added the perfect amount of sparkle that gave Andrea the bridal glow. Might we add that the crystal cape was the element  that made her Groom Eric cry when he saw her for the first time on the wedding day. We will be sure to share more photos of their unforgettable day soon!

The day was filled with so much love and happy memories, we couldn’t have dreamed of a more perfect day for the perfect pair!  And now the newly-weds are off to their honeymoon to Costa Rica and we hope they enjoy the sun, rain, nature and all their quality time together.
