I ordered my daughters flower girl dress from here along with all of her accessories. tights, necklace, bracelet, shoes and head piece. It was amazingly priced and the quality was beautiful. I did have one freak out moment when the confirmation email said that the dress was on back order. I put my wedding together in two weeks so I really didn't have the time to try and get another dress. I dealt with their customer service and they were great. They ended up finding the dress in their store and got it to me on time despite the delay. I was very impressed and my daughter looked absolutely stunning for my wedding

I modeled twice for Joy Couture. I received two dresses for my compensation. These dresses were not finished and terrible quality. The one dress was not even hemmed and had RAW edges. This led to fraying and a dress unwearable. The second dress a bow wasn't even sewed on and fell off immediately during the night. I was upset and this made the dress incomplete! Joy herself is sweet and I liked working with her. But I had an item of clothing go missing during a fitting and I was very upset. I do not know if it was her, but I was none too pleased. I believe Joy is very cheap. I do not think she spends time on each piece making sure that they are finished. She also used the same dresses in different collections for different years. I think she has talent but needs to really pay closer attention to detail as I can no longer wear the two dresses she gave me.

Browsing through the Collection elements of femininity, sophistication and chicness came to mind. After scrolling through numerous garments and designs, one dress immediately caught my attention and I could not look away. Feathery Floral Halter dress is extremely unique and nothing like I have ever seen before. The feather detailing on the dress is fun, unconventional and definitely on-trend. The feathers help ad excitement and drama to the garment, making you feel closer to the natural world. The halter is then perfectly balanced with a soft peach mesh style skirt with floral accents. This makes the dress extremely feminine while combining elements of both class and sexiness all in one. Pair the garment with a nude heel, light pink lip and wear your hair up to create the overall elegant yet sassy look.

I worked at one of her show in Montreal a while ago, got $600 store credit, and i need a dresses for my birthday,

joy told me she can customized a hand made dress for me for dress for $600, i was very delighted

I noticed this beautiful cocktail dress. Actually I’ve seen the dress over and over on the facebook – it is really hot. With hundreds of comments, this short diamonds embellished dress is really one of the most popular design of her new spring collection, (PS; these are not real diamonds of course, but they are really shining and good quality)

Made of superior material, this cocktail dress is a corset top . It fits nicely as long as you provide the right measurements as she customize the dress right to fit ur body perfectly ;) You can have it custom-tailored at size 0 to 26 and breast, waist and hip measures. Since i live in Montreal so i send her my measures myself, but she kept asking me what's my height, weight, bra size, pants size, dress size, to make sure it fits me perfectly

The dress has 30 colors to choose from. Among all, I chose champagne color options.

The original price of the dress at $800, but with discounts are frequently offered – you can get the dress with 30% to 60% off. right now its 50% off for the opening of the new store close to yonge and bloor

She gave me some discount on top. so I got a $800 dress free in exchange of one show. its a bit pricy, but defintiely worth it as she told me it takes her three days just to hand sew on the diamonds, after all u get what u pays for

Since dress is custom-made for customers by hand, she said it need about 4-6 weeks, today is the 5th week, i already got the dress in hand even though the shipping took about a week, I am extremely happy about the dress, cant to wait for my birthday :D

She only makes dresses, and specialize in dress, so if u ever need a dress for any occasion, i strong recommend her, also she have sample sales in her store, it starts from $29, defintiely a deal, must check out !!!

How I came to own 'Joy Couture' clothing:
I was invited to participate in what I was told was a fashion show for Joy Couture. I went in for a fitting with one of her assistants (which was incredibly awkward and unprofessional) and was instructed when and where to show up.

When I arrived, the models were then informed that we would just have some photos taken by an amateur photographer, and have to dance around in the club with the dresses on for a little while. I wasn't even wearing the dress I was fitted in, and a couple models were having to scramble into random ill-fitting dresses. What!?! But this was all fine, as I was handed a $600 gift certificate afterward.

My experience purchasing 'Joy Couture' clothing:
The assistant told me at the "show" that I could buy the ill-fitting dress they threw me in last minute for $500 OR that I could select something online off of Joy's facebook OR I could go into her studio to select something. After a month of trying to pick things online with little to no response from the designer, I scheduled a time the next Friday when I could go in to pick something out as I lived out of town. When I arrived, no one was there. I contacted the assistant I had previously been in contact with, and she told me no one would be there until Monday. Awesome.

I set up another date, (and I may have been slightly impatient with Joy, I will admit) and when I arrived on that day, she was there, but extremely rude and dismissive. I picked out a yoga outfit and a cute dress and was on my way.

My experience with the clothing itself:
I have not yet worn the dress, but it looks cute and well constructed (we will see how it turns out). The yoga outfit, well, I can't say it's not well made, but I can say it was not made by Joy. I washed the pants today, and her logo FELL OFF the pants and ANOTHER LOGO was underneath. Really?!?!?! What a great designer.

Needless to say, I will NEVER be purchasing from Joy in the future, or working with her designs if future events come up. I didn't even pay $600 for the things I now own, and I'm still livid. I feel bad for girls who have lost money on a fraudulent, disorganized, and rude designer.

My boyfriend bought me a dress from Joy Couture for my birthday.

I just wanted to thank you so much to Joy Couture!!
The dress looks amazing!!!!,
and Fits me just perfect!!!
I did not get to wear It yet ..
But I am very excited to wear it soon!!
Thanks for the gift she have enclosed
For me..the black dress is soo pretty!!!
Ok..just wanted to let everyone know,
I am very happy with my purchase!!!!

Joy Couture really cares about customer service, I originally wanted to buy another dress but it was temporarily out of stock. She recommended a couple of dresses to me and also gave me discount as compensation. So of course I chose the most expensive and most popular design of her new collection.

I said I will pick up the dress on Fri but I completely got off track Friday after work and I had to leave for a funeral to Montreal!! I did not have access to a computer and I thought I even had her number, but i guess i did not save it to my contact list!!! :o( I felt so bad, that I had her waiting around for a whole day, and that I ruined her plans as well as had her waiting around!!! But she was still very nice to me and didn't complain, although she could sell that dress to another customer who also want it urgent.

I am very happy with my purchase!!!!
I will buy from her again very soon!!!
Incredible design and good price!!!

Joy Hu's slogan for her clothing company is "Couture Dresses without Couture Prices". While the designs at first glance are quite fashionable, the quality is where her company loses merit.

From a client's perspective who has purchased a dress from Joy in the past, I would not recommend her to anyone. The dress (like many of them) that she sold me was of poor quality and cut, and fell apart quickly. As a matter of fact, it was within a few hours. Even still, the dresses still retail for around $85-$400 and are all made in China. Joy is determined to earn profit regardless; and does not care about the satisfaction of her customers.

As a model who has also taken part in her show, I can tell you that she charges models money to BE in her fashion show. She says that her "compensation" for working for her is the dress modeled at a discounted price. But this does not make any sense to me. Shouldn't she be paying models to walk for her instead, not other way around? It goes to show you how little integrity her company runs on - and it's just not right.

There are plenty of dress designers and shops in the city with far more beautiful dresses and are of better quality. Ladies, I highly, highly suggest you look elsewhere.
