Yes, we offer a 2-month lay-by whereby you leave the dress with us and you have 2 months to pay it off and collect. We also offer Zip Pay where you can buy now, take the gown home today and pay later.
No, the Gossip Gowns store is full of formal and prom gowns, and they are usually aimed at our 16 – 19-year-old shoppers. Our gowns are mostly unique pieces that cannot be ordered again. If you are bridesmaid shopping, it is best to visit stores that specialise in wedding and bridesmaid gowns. We do not have the expertise, or the range to satisfy bridesmaid groups.
Yes, you can. We are unique in that we dedicate 100% of our floor space to formal dresses, and we understand that lots of girls want to be able to find their dream dress, and to be able to take it home that same day to show off to family and friends, so at Gossip Gowns that is exactly what we do!
We have 12 fitting rooms dedicated to our school formal shoppers, and every weekend and School Holiday time is extremely busy. We work as hard as we can to provide one-on-one service to everyone who walks through our doors. Please understand that if you come to our store and are asked to wait before trying on, it is simply because our team is already looking after someone else, and as soon as we can, we will provide you with the same personalised service.
Shopping in our store Monday to Friday is always the best time to visit us.
No, we do not have any dresses available to rent. The big brands like JOVANI, THE PRIVATE COLLECTION and SHERRI HILL do not support or stock rental shops. So, for us to continue to have the best formal brands, we can’t hire. Rental shops don’t buy from big brands; they hire out second hand dresses.
We are in our brand-new building at 170 Bennetts Road Norman Park QLD. We are a standalone building with our own free carpark. Often on weekend and during busy school holiday times the car park can be full, but there is also plenty of free street parking in the surrounding streets.
The best shopping experiences are often when you just come with one, or both parents. Often we see girls come into the store with a large group of friends, and they end up confused, frustrated and without a dress because there are too many opinions. Keep it simple and bring your most honest and trusted shopping buddy. You can rely on our team to look after you, we will not let anyone buy a dress that isn’t perfect for them!
It’s never too early to start shopping for your formal dress. We are constantly re stocking our shelves with exciting new dresses, and once we sell out of a style, we often don’t replace it with the same style, so if you love it…. go for it or you might miss out on it!
No, formal shoppers do not need appointments. We work on a first come, first serve basis.
We have a first come, first served basis. If you’re coming to the store to try on formal dresses, we suggest getting here in plenty of time before we close. We want to make sure we can provide the best possible customer service by giving you plenty of time to try on. When you arrive, we will ask what event you are attending and roughly what are you looking for. As soon as a member of our team becomes available, we will start with 3 dresses you are interested in, and once you are in a fitting room, we will work with you to continue the search to find that perfect gown.
Yes, we do! We have our little alteration studio located next door, and no one knows how to alter our gowns as well as we do! The cost of any alteration is not included in the cost of the gown. We are happy to book you in for alterations at a time that is suitable for you.
We sell you the actual dress in the photo. We do not do any colour editing and attempt to make sure the colours on the screen are as accurate as possible.
