Appointments / Fittings
- How long before my formal event should I start shopping for my dress?
14-16 weeks is ideal. We receive seasonal stock on a regular basis, but if you require a gown from our Custom Collection then our standard order times are 12 weeks or 6 weeks if an express order is required. We understand that sometimes events pop up at last minute and can definitely cater for same-day functions too.
- Why do I have to book an appointment? Can’t I just walk in & visit?
We offer a personalised service and can better assist you by obtaining information regarding your occasion, event date, size and requirements before you visit the showroom. Walk-ins are welcome when space is available, but we prefer to work with our clients one-on-one, so appointments are preferred.
- Does booking an appointment cost any money?

- 15 Minute appointments for gown collection / pick up
- Can I book multiple appointments?
Yes, we understand that life is busy and that all of your style squad may not be able to attend every fitting. Our appointments fill up quickly, so we encourage you to book your preferred day and time for every appointment in advance.
- Can I bring my friends / family with me to my appointment?
Of course. We encourage second opinions.
- Do you have customer car parking?
Miss Savage is located on Given Terrace Paddington, directly opposite Witchery (and next door to Tiramisu Restaurant)
There is street parking, but if unavailable we have client parking at the back of the premises - just turn right onto Hayward Street and then take the first driveway on the right.
Drive all the way to the end and you'll see signed parking spot for Miss Savage.
There is a small set of stairs to the far right that leads up to the street front (don't take long back stairs near the bins as we don't have safe access at the back of the premises).
