Harriet Kassman

In continuation of my reviews of Bridal Salons that I had good experiences with I have to mention Harriet Kassman. Not many people know that this Washington institution for special event and inaugural wear began selling bridal gowns in January. They carry Reem Acra, Badgley Mischka, Anne Barge, Stephen Yearick, and Romona Kevesa. This store is definitely for the bride looking for a more expensive gown (think around $4000 and up) but I have to say it was a really wonderful shopping experience. Even though is was an upscale salon, no mention of money or budgets was ever made and no snobbishness at all from my attendant Leeza Isaac. All of the dresses are out on the floor so you could browse through them if you wanted but I let Leeza pick a few dresses for me. She has excellent taste, understood what I wanted, and was extremely knowledgeable about the gowns. She seemed really genuinely excited when I tried on gowns that worked. I particularly liked Romona Kevesa's gowns. I didn't find "the one" here but I had a great time shopping and I'd recommend them to anyone.

My recent experience at Harriett Kassman was so disgraceful, I have been urged by friends and family to post a blog about them. I am an upcoming bridesmaid and purchased my dress at HK. Never would I step in to the store again. Rude and unprofessional are not strong enough words to describe the staff(one salewoman actually slammed a dressing room door in my face because I requested their seamstress redo a seam in my dress which caused it to bulge). I was told in so many words that because my dress wasn't one of their 'high end' dresses (it only cost $320 with alterations) that it didn't warrant my request for further alterations, which I paid $85 for. The store is snotty, snobby and I do not recommend anyone taking their business to these people. Their gowns are also through the roof expensive!
