In regard to receiving your money or dress- If you paid for your dress with a major credit card, you are protected and can be refunded by contacting your credit card company. Either call the number on the back of the card, or go online to the credit card company's website.
Alfred Angelo has not released a lot of information but does finally have this statement on their website:
"Alfred Angelo filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy on July 14, 2017. As a result, all Alfred Angelo stores, corporate offices and Alfred Angelo wholesalers are closed. Margaret Smith is the Court appointed Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Trustee. If you wish to be contacted regarding your order status, please send an email to email@example.com. In your email, please include your order number, name as it appears on your order and the location of your purchase. We will post additional information regarding the status of pending orders on this website as it becomes available or otherwise contact you as we receive more information regarding your purchase."
If you have not received your dress yet, it’s possible your dress is still in the store, is still being shipped, or is with a seamstress. Alfred Angelo has given the name of the attorney handling the case but with the overwhelming amount of people contacting them, it might take a while for them to get back you. Most sources are saying that if your dress was in store when they closed, your seamstress has it. If you do not have your seamstress' contact information, it might be posted on the door of the closed store.
The attorney is Patricia A. Redmond. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 305-789-3553. The best way to contact her is likely through email. Getting a response will take time, so be patient. If you don't have time to wait for an answer, contact the stores above!
