Black & White has recently closed (Jan 2015). This post is still published to hopefully save you from making the drive to Heinsberg based on old information. An alternative to this store is Autumn’s Glamour in Sittard.
I have seen this store a hundred times while walking to or from H&M. I always love the large windows where they have a ton of displays with these elegant gowns and wedding dresses. So yesterday in my panic to fit into one of my dresses, the first thing to pop into my mind…. Grab a VAT Form and go find a dress at this store.
I got there with my limited German and found out the lady doesn’t speak a lick of English. However she was fabulous. With my broken German and some “pointy-talky”, we figured out my size (which I knew from a previous formal gown I bought on Amazon.de), and we figured out my style preference. From there I was ushered into the dressing room and she started bringing out the dresses. After trying on 5 or 6 of them, I was stuck deciding. There wasn’t one I didn’t want. Luckily, the last dress was still waiting for me to try and when I did, I knew it was THE ONE.
She does take the VAT Form but bring the German translation with you. I didn’t, but thankfully I was able to explain it to her.
This store is well priced by the way. The short cocktail dresses were between 59-79€ and most of the long formal dresses were between 99-149€ (Now of course there were several well above that price, but she had at least 5 that were 99€ to choose from).

I went by there today in hopes of finding a dress. They are no longer there. There were for rent signs in the windows. 😦
Thanks for letting us know Gabby. We’ll be on the lookout for alternatives in the area.
