Saved by the Dress was a simple idea that turned into a wildly successful online women’s fashion boutique. Husband and wife team, Carla and Bill opened their boutique in 2013 and have since moved their business from a tiny apartment to a 20,000-square foot warehouse in Miami, FL with a growing team of 20 employees.
Since their boutique became a reality in 2013, Saved by the Dress has shipped near 400,000 orders and has achieved an astounding 1,150% sales growth in just three years, is ranked as the #23 top retail companies and #15 in Miami.
A huge part of Saved by the Dress’ tremendous success has to do with their mission to help provide customers with a one of a kind shopping experience with exceptional customer service, affordability, and extremely fast shipping. They want their customers to feel and look their best at an affordable price. Saved by the Dress also supports USA-made clothing, and their dedicated team of employees work tirelessly each day to put customer happiness at the forefront of their business mission.
Owners Bill and Carla are also passionate about being able to give back and support women entrepreneurs around the world in developing countries which they are able to do through their company.
Carla says “we are honored to be ranked 441 in Inc. Magazine's 37th annual Inc. 5000. We cannot wait to see what this year brings and are looking forward to continuing to provide fashion at an affordable price and providing outstanding customer service for all of our customers at Saved by the Dress.”
