Over 20 years of dressing grads
Our story starts in 1998 on Salt Spring Island—a picturesque island off the West Coast of Canada. Since then, we’ve grown to be Canada’s preeminent retailer of special occasion dresses, from grad dresses to bridal and bridesmaid dresses, now located in Victoria, British Columbia’s historic Old Town. Whether you’re graduating, getting married or going to a ball (it happens!), we stock dresses for every special occasion—and we can’t wait to dress you, too.

Alyssa was absolutely wonderful!!! She really shares this experience with you, there may have been a tear or two between us Alyssa genuinely makes this experience magical! My daughter found the most amazing dress and left Grad Central feeling confident, surprised and honestly, so beautiful!!!
Wonderful experience! We've been looking since September for the perfect dress for my daughter, Joanne was so helpful, she really knew her stuff in terms of not only style but color and overall cut/fit! We're elated to have found her the perfect dress
Had a great experience today at Grad Central, was helped by two girls who were both amazing! I was looking for a gold dress and they took the time to show me all the possibilities and what I could get. I would highly recommend going there, I ended up buying a dress and couldn’t be happier!
Excellent experience. Very helpful staff. The two ladies that assisted us went above and beyond and made this day super memorable for our family. Beautiful product. So much to choose from.
