How much are you willing to pay for something that’s not BRAND?

I’m almost a 100% positive it’s been asked before but I can’t find it and I want current answers.

So a while ago I had a conversation with someone and mentioned how bummed I was that this $400 candyviolet OP i was saving for had sold out. And she was all *shock**horror* “you would pay that much for something that’s not even brand?” which lead to the longest discussion that we’re still having to this day and that I now want to extend to the community.

How much are you willing to pay for something that’s not by a Japanese brand? Something that’s constructed as well as brand (great seamstress etc) but not Japanese. like a seamstress or a none japanese store.

Does dress design have something to do with your limit? Or is a certain number just too high for something that’s not Japanese brand regardless of dress design.

Is the amount of money you are willing to spend on brand more than off brand? (generally speaking, I understand dream dresses etc)

Now, I think by now we all know that a well made brand quality dress can cost about as much as brand (assuming its not made in china I guess) because of the work that goes into it. However, that’s not what I’m asking ;)

* This also doubles as research for me since my aunt is thinking about running a small business making dresses for a few months but she wants to have a budget in mind for material/work that goes into it etc. so accurate answers to this are very much appreciated.
