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 her 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.
I want to thank you again so much for your help last weekend and bringing my gown into my life - absolutely cannot wait to put her on again soon! Thank you again so much, look forward to seeing you again soon!
Wow absolutely amazing! So helpful! Listened to what I wanted! Helped me put on the dresses was such a good experience Ilyese - the manager at the Auckland city Astra bridal - you are fabulous!! I’m a plus size bride and you didn’t batter an eye lid you made me feel so special! The gown I found is beyond beautiful and I got the emotional moment when I found my dress that every girl should have - thanks for making my experience perfect! I couldn’t recommend the Astra bridal Auckland city enough!
I would like to say a big thank you for your help today - you were awesome especially my consultant Ilyese! She made me feel completely at ease with the whole process and made the whole experience what it was - I'm excited about wearing THE dress.
Bought my gown from Symonds Street in Auckland and couldn’t have been a better experience. Ilyese was amazing to deal with - she took a lot of time to find the perfect dress for me. Everything was just so easy and the whole team is amazing. Can’t recommend enough to go and have a look.
Hi Ilyese,Thank you so much for all the help you gave me trying on the beautiful gowns in the store. It was really great working with you and the advice you gave me really helped me to work out what kind of style I should try for my wedding. Thanks again for all your help!
