If you’re a Bride in New York, you know the name Kleinfeld. Outside of the US it’s unlikely that you’ve heard it before unlesss you’re in the wedding industry, but they are THE name in wedding dress stores in the States.
Their superstore on 20th Street in Manhattan is a veritable treasure trove, with over 1,500 dresses in stock – can you believe it? 30,000 square feet, plush carpets, chandeliers and an appointment only system to meet the “consultants”. A recent article on BBC News stated that the average spend is around £4,000, but that a Nigerian princess spent £20,000 (just on the dress, before she added the veil, shoes, jewellery etc.) – and of course the Americans often have a second dress to change into for the reception!
Kleinfeld’s clients come from all over the country, as well as Europe, China and Brazil – and they’ve got a men’s boutique as well, so the guys don’t feel left out!
