Hello we look forward to working with you! Here at Qlichee everything is custom to order! Everything custom we do not keep any products on hand. During prom season which is Dec until July we do not ship orders. You have the option to meet the lead designer Stephanie Freeman while she is on tour or with a team member at our home based location in Dallas TX. We have been accepting deposit for prom since August for this upcoming prom season. The deposit is 300 and can be paid to secure your spot on the custom design tab. Yes the deposit is applied towards the unit. Tour dates are picked based off orders received/deposits. So if you would like us to come to your city get your deposit in as soon as possible and tell your friends to do the same. We are so excited to make your dream gowns an reality.  Again we do not keep any products on hand and everything is custom to order and made on the spot during the tour and at the home base location. Below are pictures of our beautiful clients as well as the price point of their gowns to give you soon to be clients "smile" an idea of our prices.  Enjoy! ~Qlichee
