What does "Best of Brand" mean?
So glad you clicked to find out! Simply stated, Christella’s Best of Brand is exactly that – the BEST dresses from every designer brand that we carry. In essence, we don’t carry every dress created by the designers that we feature – We ONLY carry THE BEST Dresses created in each and every line. We are MORE than just an online warehouse - We are BOTH a brick & mortar REAL store, Authorized Retailer for every featured brand AND an online web retail site.
Even the best designers create designs that are not premium. Our Expert Stylist travel the globe to every major formal wear market in search of the Best of the Best to offer our customers. We actually take the time to evaluate every single dress produced. We touch the fabric, inspect the construction, see the garment on a fit model, assess the beading or embellishments and Rate Every Dress. We have an extensive buying process that we have developed in order to determine the dresses that "Make the Cut" to be carried in our store and promoted online through our web site. We do not offer any garment online that we would not proudly feature in our 10,000 sqft Flagship Store in Portland, Oregon.
TRUST Matters ~ We Want to Earn Yours.
We take the guess work out of shopping online for your perfect Dream Dress. Any dress that you find on our web site is a "Recommended Style." We classify each and every dress within our ranking system, assign features and attribute categories, assign suggested styles for specific body types and rate the "alterability" of each garment in order for you to make an informed and educated buying decision. Our goal is to make the buying process as close to an in store experience as possible by informing our shoppers and instilling confidence in your buying process with us. If you do not see a style on our web site… that dress did not "Make the Christella’s Cut."
