With a devotion to fabrics, embellishments and silhouettes it was natural for Ilyese to complete a Fashion Design degree from AUT. This knowledge and then experience in the fashion industry made Ilyese a natural addition to the team in Auckland. She has progressed to lead the team and teach them all the knowledge she holds. Brides who have a booking with Ilyese will be lucky recipients of her expertise in garment construction combined with her knowledge of how a gown can be tailored for the perfect look.

Ilyese can be found in Auckland Newmarket

I had an amazing experience with Astra Bridal!! From day one of trying on dresses the team were so helpful and made it such a fun experience. Absolutely loved my dress and the whole process felt totally effortless which was the best during a busy time! Would absolutely recommend.

Ilyese is the best person to have on your side when looking for your dream dress. She goes above and beyond and is so understanding and supportive. The easiest experience by far and the best cheer leader. It was a pleasure to have her helping me on this journey and keeping me updated on my dress and to share the experience with her. 10/10 service.
