Ever Elegant
Ever Elegant started as a custom dressmaking business in East Malvern, and serviced the locals , making Bridal Gowns , Mother of the bride, race wear, day wear and even t shirts.

The owner of Ever Elegant Helena Buxton, has been a custom dressmaker for thirty plus years and has heard many of her clients saying that there wasn’t anywhere to get great occasion wear for the mature lady.

Because of this the concept of a boutique specially for a more mature lady , but one still wanting style and elegance, was born.
Ever Elegant
As a mature lady herself and having made custom outfits for many years, Helena knew what ladies were asking for and went out to find designers from around the world with stunning occasion wear.

Not all ladies are the same so she has sourced many different styles in sizes from 6 to 26, and a range of prices.

Another consideration, was that mothers of the bride want something a little more exclusive.There is nothing more deflating and embarrassing than walking in to your daughters or sons wedding and a guest has the same outfit. So many of our outfits are exclusive to Ever Elegant here in Australia.
Ever Elegant
With Helena’s experience in custom dressmaking, she has provided a Alteration service for outfits sold in store. Very few ladies can walk out without a minor adjustment, so we find most ladies find this service a great addition.

We receive 2 main deliveries per year from our overseas designers. Our main order being Jan-March and a smaller order July – Sept.

We do not keep lots of multiples of sizes, so be quick to ensure you size.
Ever Elegant

Ever Elegant
With so many websites selling poor quality fake designer copies, we would like to make clear that we are an authorized retailer for all of our brands and source our product directly from the designers. They are of a high quality.

We have heard many horror stories of ladies purchasing outfits through websites that seem to be genuine, only to find the quality and fit are extremely poor.

If the price is extremely low there is a fair chance that it is a fake manufacturing website.
