Dear Henkaanistas,

As a small business, we're grateful that you, our biggest supporters, are always here for us. We're so thankful for your recent referrals, reviews, shares, likes and personal notes of encouragement. These times are challenging, but we know that together with our community, we will be able to weather this storm and come out stronger. 

And we also want you to know that we're here for you. 

All of our lives have been disrupted, and our hearts go out to all of you who had to postpone or cancel big life events like weddings and graduations. We’re here to answer questions, connect you with resources and to cheer you on, because there will come a time when we will be able to celebrate again in a big way - and what a party that will be!

In the meantime, we still have the opportunity to make lasting, beautiful memories we can look fondly back upon. Life is made up of many special moments - big and small, and we’d love to celebrate more intimate moments with you, like a virtual party, birthday at home, motherhood or anniversary dinner. No matter the occasion, we've got you covered. 

Here are a few updates from us:

Orders + Shipping

Our online store is open and we continue to ship all orders from our Toronto area warehouse via Canada Post for Canadian orders and USPS for American orders. In-stock orders typically arrive within 7-11 business days of ordering; however, please check our shipping page for updates on potential shipping delays from individual carriers.

If you have pre-ordered items, we are still on track for your delivery dates.

Virtual Events

Join us for our Virtual Styling Sessions - super informative webinars where we'll show you how to style and wear your dress in 5 beginner styles and give you insider tips and tricks. We'll also talk about how to care for your dress so you can wear and re-wear your dress for years to come. We'll answer your questions about what bra to wear, how to adjust the length and ideas for wearing the dresses more casually too.

Break out your dress and style along with us in the comfort of your home!

And if you don't have a dress yet, you can still join the session too, and find out why women love to wear our versatile dresses! And if you've still got questions, reach out to Customer Care and we'd be happy to help you out.

Join our newsletter and follow us on Instagram and Facebook @henkaa to find out about our upcoming schedule, access my weekly IG Live conversations with the Henkaanista community and more fun virtual events! We look forward to connecting with you.

How We're Giving Back: Gift Cards + Jo's Foundation

Henkaa is committed to giving back to our community and we believe in women supporting women. While many of us are doing our part to flatten the curve by staying home during the COVID-19 pandemic, home may not be the safest place - especially for women and children who are experiencing domestic violence. To help support this vulnerable group and others who are at an increased risk of domestic violence, Henkaa has chosen to donate 5% of gift card sales to the YWCA Toronto, which provides safety and shelter for women and their children.

By purchasing a gift card you'll be able to give someone special (maybe yourself!) the gift of choice and support this important cause at the same time.

When the pandemic is over, Henkaa will continue to contribute 1% of all dress sales to the Joanna Duong Chang Foundation, in honour of our late Founder, and in support of initiatives that help women and girls reach their fullest potentials. 

Thank you again for your continued support of our small, female-led business. Keep safe and healthy.

With gratitude,


Co-Owner & Managing Director
