Ballwear

The immediate thought when a ball invitation arrives is Modes.  Whether it be long, short, beaded, floaty, sleek, elegant, simple, or unconventional, you will be spoilt for choice.

Gowns

We stock a vast selection of beautiful gowns from Matthew Eager, George Gross, Jovani and Nicole Miller-to name just a few. The sizes ranging from 6-18 and in many cases only one or two of these gowns are bought into New Zealand so you can be sure to make a statement at your next black tie event.

Designer Gowns

Please view our selection of Designer Gowns for a more exclusive product.

Gowns under $400

Sometimes we need to work to a particular budget or feel that the look required is only suitable for the night.  For this reason we have sourced a few collections that are made off shore in China and although the look can be very up to the minute, the fabrics, linings and beading are obviously appropriate for the price.  The size range is restricted in such collections to sizes  6-18.

The exception to this is the Mr K, Purple Patch, Eve Hunter, Flirt and G collections, where the quality is of a high standard for the price and the size range is more extensive.  Eve Hunter and Flirt gowns are available  in sizes 16-26  while Purple Patch and Mr K range from 6-18.

From time to time we clear gowns that may have been damaged in-store or the style has since been discontinued.  These items are usually priced between $99 and $299 to clear.  You may be lucky that the last one just happens to be your size and exactly what you have been looking for!

Short Dresses

New Zealand’s leading frock shop also offers short dresses in every colour palette, style, shape and size (6-22.)

If you are looking for a dress for any special event whether it be a garden wedding, corporate dinner, a day at the races,  or a formal black tie event, just pop downstairs (through summer there is also an extensive collection upstairs) and tell the team where you are going, they will find you not one but several options to choose from in range of prices. We have a wide selection of jackets, wraps and shrugs, which can be co-ordinated to your garment and in most instance straps in various widths can also be added.
