Galore Couture (Germany)
Charming standard gowns using Chrisanne and Edda Hsu fabrics and trimmings.
Nancy’s Dance Fashion (The Netherlands)
One of Holland’s leading dressmakers. Beautiful, elaborate gowns using Chrisanne and Edda Hsu fabrics.
A very talented designer from Finland, Vesa Hietala’s spectacular designs make jaws drop and heads turn every time a top dancer appears in them. Sponsored couples include Michael Malitowski-Joanna Leunis, Riccardo Cocchi-Yulia Zagoryuchenko to mention only a few.
Rainbow Shiu (China)
Two opinions from dance-forums:
’Rainbow Shiu is allright. The only problem with her costumes is that you can always identify a smooth gown made by her. You glance around the competition floor and immediately spot them. They’re all cut the same, they all hang lifelessly, and most of them have ill-placed embellishments. So, if you purchase from Rainbow Shiu, just know that people will take one look at you and know immediately, you bought that dress off e-bay.’
’I agree with sayings like “you get what you paid”. But given the cheap labor rate in China (and the fact that they directly copy nice designs without paying), you surely can get a lot more with less money than here in the US. I’d even say Rainbow’s dress are a bit over-priced given the quality.’
Zdenka Arko (UK)
Very feminine, stylish, tasteful ballgowns using smart ideas. All the smooth gowns bring some pep, while maintaining an overall elegance with shapes and lining. The accessories offered are also amazing, two thumbs up for Ms Arko.
Latin/rhythm dresses look a lot like Designs to Shine creations.
Ms Zanna: „I was fortunate to work for the company that was enlisted to design and make dresses for the number one hit show Dancing with the Stars on ABC television in 2005 and I was one of the lead designers at the time.”
Very exciting designs, great color combinations and a terrific use of rhinestones.
