Essence Sample Sale
What is a sample sale?
Sample sale items are gowns that were used for photoshoots, events, or to test a size/style/fabric. Samples are dresses that are still completely wearable, but are sold at discounted price since they have been worn and/or have minor flaws. Many of our samples are in mint condition and have only been tried on. All samples are sold as-is and cannot be returned or exchanged. Because of our strict Return Policy on sample sale gowns, we are willing to send you a video or have a video chat conference with you of the dress you'll be receiving before you purchase. Contact us at email@example.com and let us know which gown you'd like to see.
What is the difference between a new gown and a sample gown?
A new gown is made-to-order, meaning that it is cut and sewn once you order and is completely new. New gowns are also customizable to your size, height, and preferences. Our sample gowns were made for photoshoots or to test a size/style/fabric. Because sample gowns have been worn and are test pieces that may have minor flaws, we are able to sell them at a fraction of the cost. Sample gowns are sold as-is and cannot be customized, returned, or exchanged.
Sample sales are excluded from any discounts or sales. Due to COVID-19, sample sale gowns will be shipped within 14 days from the date of purchase.
